    Tried it yesterday...

    Didnt find anything on my machine...although it did want me to defrag my c:\


    The scan was kinda slow.... due to beta I guess

    I just locked my WS and did something else...

    Hey Hey,

    This whole Live thing in general is starting to bother me... Especially with all the talk I keep hearing that it's going to be free/low cost because it's ad driven.. that's what I want... AV that produces pop-ups on my PC.... Office Live, Windows Live... I'm getting kinda tired of it... The only one I've seen that looks like it's worthwhile (Well Office Live will be nice... if it's free of adware, etc)... is The Email Live.... 2GB of mail in a setup that's more like OWA and less like webmail... no more clicking pages waiting for the entire page to reload... just the pane that's viewing the message....

    It's off topic.. but it's semi on.. so bleh :P Can you tell work is almost over and I'm incredibly bored and tired?

    Peace,
    HT

    I had to uninstall it.... at first everything seemed fine, but after it did all its scans,lockdowns etc.... then it decided it wanted to lockdown firefox and IE like when like double clicked them it wouldnt bring up anything except a page not found error.... I tried to kill the process with task manager but it came coming back... it annoyed me so i just uninstalled it and now that its gone i have firefox and IE back.

    Bla bla bla

    can only be installed on English language version of Windows..


    That is really a major minus for Microsoft..

    Any other OS I know you can select the language while running..
    Select a whole load more languages then Windows has..
    etc..

    In Windows land it is a different build per language..

    And funny thing is the Windows gets more english evrytime you update some dll
    ASCII stupid question, get a stupid ANSI.
