Yeah, so, the conclusion of the latest part in my Epic New Computer Saga was that Windows had kindly installed a new anti-virus (Microsoft Security Essentials) in the latest bundle of updates, which I had failed to notice. However, I was already using Avast, so, yeah that wasn’t a match made in heaven. My computer was fixed by the guys at the repairshop noticing this and uninstalling Avast. I still have SpyBot installed, though, and now I’m unsure whether to keep it or uninstall that too. The comp still works, but I note that MSE scans for spyware too when running a full scan, but I don’t know if it would cause trouble. So I’m a bit wary of running either of them.
What sayeth thee?
