Personally I like AVG. They have a free version but it doesn't protect you completely but the full version does. I have used AVG on my wife & Granddaughters PC's for years and have never had an issue. I have also recommended it to friends and clients and never had to deal with the adware, malware, virus issue on any of there PC's. I have several clients also running McAfee (Mainly because AT&T provides it for free) that have not had an issue.
I'm with you on Norton. Early on Norton failed to detect viruses on several of our computers when I worked in IT and also I had an issue on my own PC's years ago. Both Norton & McAfee have had update issues where they have either took the system down they were protecting or caused other havoc.
The Spybot has a system called Teatime that should help protect your system but you will have to tell it to update it self. Glad you got it working. :smile1:
I used to use TeaTimer all the time, but have found it to be a bit of a memory hog on older units. Still love spybot S&D and SuperAntiSpyware. Both catch different things.
I have switched over to AntiVir for my home protection. Have had 2 instances with AVG, and I kinda lost faith.
MacAfee will NEVER be on my computer again. Lost a whole Hard Drive to one of their "Updates". On an AMD machine. They released it without testing it on anything but Intel. I would've rather had a virus... Probably could've recovered from that.
Thanks for the input Bill.

I followed several of the directions and seem to have a much smoother running FF. Look through the KB for your problem.
Mine was 'Hang loading websites' and 'Hang on exit'.

Computer issues make me want to take mine outside and shoot it with my shotgun...
I know exactly what you mean.

Late last night, the light finally came on. I have found the cause of all this. The password I had here and at My Yahoo/mail account were the same. Yahoo has some problems going on and I got the password changed there. Tried the same thing here, and am happy to say, FF 6.0.2 is running fine. I used that password at two other places, will have to e-mail them to get it changed. No way to log in to do it. Apparently, some one hacked into the accounts at Yahoo, support is backed up for a couple days they said.
