My son has been fixing pc's for some of our frienmds
first he removed several anti-virus programs from a laptop that took 10 minutes to get to the desktop
the next was easy took 1 day
this person buys laptope and when they screw up buys a new one until it screws up
this last one has Canine Security installes
I thought is was the TV barking all the time klooked looked around it was the PC.
even on Microsoft ( updates) and Cnet and other safe sites. I cannot find them on the www so possibly they " have gone to their reward"

we have a windows install cd and this will end the foolishness
I wonder, did it really protect her young sons?

Should I lend it to my BIL and see if HIS sites can make it bark?
the worst is after three barks, it shuts off the internet for 30 minutes. Hard to do upgrades.

he formatted the drive.
this mom is very protective of her two boys
with what I have seen, I would either move away ( alone) or cage them.
but likely at the time the laptop was being used,
he was younger and cold visit the wrong places.
seems the PLAN was when a laptop got "screwed up"
it was set aside and another laptop was purchased.
\My son "processed 3 or 4 of her laptops.
the newest had Vista and took ten minutes to get to the desktop
there were several anti-virus programs installed..

a lesson for me: If I am going on a triop, I gulp down the entire bottels (12) of pills and that does me for the week
RIGHT? Or will I( become another "silent key"
or "cross over the bar" ( more is not better)

anyway, , this pc was vista 32 bit., when my son put in the dell restore cd, it chose (on it's own) vista 64 bit. seemed the original install was wrong.
the kid will get back a much faster PC.
we save his data and put it on the new install.
