Based on the old Windows adage, "every second release is an improvement", you should wait until Windows 9.
.. Ditto,dude! Just like the case of ME and Vista!! Windows 9 will rock (er.. assumed )!!

Know what you mean mate just cleaned up a badly corrupted machine for friend and that MUCKAfee was the pits to get rid of -not to mention "again" that rotten AVG search thingy.

I am going to try adding some of these annoying sites to my Kaspersky ISS and see if it will stop the rot!

Fear not, my friends! If you think Microsoft is having a hard time killing off Windows XP, wait until they have to gt rid of Windows 7.







Vista? What vista?

Heh - maybe that was how come I ended up with an MVP award pretty much for supporting System Restore in ME (I think I spent more trime trying (and failing) to diss Norcrap.

Maybe it's just me, but I never had any trouble with ME. I was actually quite reluctant to drop it when XP appeared.

As to the debate between the relevant differences between Windows and Linux, allow me to add my feelings.....

To me, the differences between the two operating systems are not of any great importance. I can edit my photos, write letters, edit my movies, watch videos etc., etc. on both. The important things are the programmes. As long as they work, the underlying OS is immaterial.

I use both at the moment though Win7 is the favourite. But that is only because I'm more used to it.

As to learning command line useage in Linux - I've never had occasion to use it. I've actually used it in Windows (flushdns) more often. 99% of work done in Linux (Ubuntu) is done by the GUI.

Like a lot of people here I've been using computers since the late '70s and well remember spending hours writing code for the old ZX81, and then spending many more hours debugging it!

Happy days indeed.

The ZX81? Wasn't that the one that had one whopping KB of RAM which actually doubled as the frame buffer for the onscreen display? Meaning you couldn't write anything beyond what would fit on the screen...not quite sure how that would take hours to code and more hours to debug.

I even got rid of Norton Online Backup using "pc-decrapifier". No problems.
Size only 1.3 MB and you can use it stored in Documents. No installation necessary.
So it can be deleted fast too.

Hi all
slightly off topic --but all this stuff came about when PC / Laptop manufacturers stopped supplying you with two disks -- one the "Bog standard OEM windows install disk" --you've actually paid for this believe it or not with your product key and another one containing the PC / Laptop drivers and pre-installed applications.

Now you get that usually USELESS restore partition which contains a whole slew of crap / trial and adware on it making it impossible to do a "bog standard" Windows install (even from an OEM disk).

I usually bargain with the store people saying I'll buy the laptop if they throw in a retail copy of windows with it. These days with the stores struggling to shift goods this ploy usually works so don't be scared -- what have you lost -- the worst that can happen is they say no --but usually they want to see you leaving the store with some goods.

When you get the PC home --image the partition first then wipe the disk and do a totally new Windows install with the retail disk. You'll probably have to get a few drivers from the Internet after install but 95% of stuff should work straight from a Windows clean install.

(Even though computers are "sys-prepped" before shipping -- that's still no excuse NOT to provide the buyer with the base OS before adding all the crapware -- They MUST have a basic W7 image created before they add all the apps etc. The base OS can also be available as a Disk image --they don't have to supply a physical disk.).

Cheers

I have never used Linux and know little about it. I have seen Mandrake, Red Hat and other forms of Linux. How do they differ?

My first days with a Windows 8 phone
I became adventurous and spent $79 for a Windows 8 phone. I said to myself what can you lose, I spent similar money for a USB stick. But what I can gain is some experience - as if I needed that at my age, LOL. My first impressions are mixed. There are really 3 parts to it. 1. The Nokia part...
