All kinds of Windows 7 problems solved instantly

I solved all kinds of software problems instantly when I uninstalled Computer Associates security suite. For some reason, once that program is installed, there is no way to turn it off. And, it wreaks havoc on software installations. Once I uninstalled it, all of my Windows 7 software installation woes were gone. Go figure!

Now I am trying the Symantec/Norton. I will keep everyone posted as to how that goes. So far, so good.

Why not give Microsoft Security Essentails a try

It is free...it is very lightweight...it is maintained by Microsoft.
