Journal: Microsoft Security Essentials

Journal by NervousNerd

After hearing about and reading about Microsoft's "Morro" anti-virus, now called "Microsoft Security Essentials", I've decided to download and install it. If you want to download it, just search Google (or look at the Wikipedia page for it).

The install was rather quick and painless on my XP machine. Just "verify" my "genuine windows", let the anti-virus update and do a quick scan. Boom, done. It was rather fast and doesn't bog down the system like other anti-virus apps do. If it was cheap it'd be a good anti-virus app. For free, though? It's great.

What's your thoughts on it? Like it? Hate it?

Journal: A Dilemma...

A relative of mine is having major problems with his computer (malware infection), and is contemplating getting a new computer while giving me his old one. The problem though, is that his new computer most certainly will have Vista on it. I'm still on XP, which means that I'd have to run a Vista VM if he was to ask me for help. Should I get the free machine and deal with Vista or get no machine and re-install XP on it. (NOTE: He's one of those run IE6 and don't update Windows types).

My keyboard breaks today, uh just between me and you I was chowing down a tasty snack, so I go out to non other than Wal*Mart to purchase a new keyboard. I grab the cheapest one they have, wait in line for a half hour, and go back home. I open the box, actually tearing it into multiple pieces, ripping off the plastic covering the keyboard, and I stare at it. I know it was only $9.99, but unreadable letters? Damn, they've gotten cheaper than cheap. The keyboard in this Commodore 64 I own still has readable letters, and its over 20 years old!
