To add a lot more Anti Spyware protection,
Get Spybot Search & Destroy 1.4 FREE and,
Spyware Blaster (a spyware blocker) also FREE.

Spybot is written by a techie and needs some setup befor its going to run right.
You can get my own setup for it on my web page. See my sig line.
Also some tuneup tips for much improved performance.

Good Luck with the new 'puter,
Shadow :tazz:

When you get it ..power it up make sure everything works.

Power down insert your XP sp2 disk reformat,reinstall all drivers,download Firefox and AVG..your good to go ;)


I had to do that to my DELL Inspiron..it came with so much useless crap a re-install of windows was the easiest way to get rid of it :)

I think I regained almost 3 gigs of space by doing it :tazz:

Now it runs Linux SuSE 9.3 :(
