I doubt it,she only got the PC this evening and the very first thing i tried on it was Windows Update,i searched throughprograms etc and didnt see anything like peer guardian but there was about 9 programs i never seen before,some were hp programs,some obviously were ntebook (i use desktop)
As for the AV,it had Norton 09 trial,first thing i deleted as i have no faith in it so its not the AV either,Automatic updates are on though,could HP be blocking the feature some how?i never seen such "filled" pc that was brand new before,loads of stupid apps on it.
