Anti-virus, but I have found that it is almost totally incompatible with my
Athlon systems. One of my Athlons (XP 2400+ 2.0 ghz, 1GB ram) wouldn't even
boot once it was installed. The other one, (XP 2000 1.67 Ghz, 1 GB ram)
ran--but barely. However, our machine with a Pentium 4 does seems to handle
the program a little better. What is the point of an anti-virus program
that slows your computer to a crawl? Anyone else have this problem with

Re: F-Secure is system hog
One of the machines never had McAfee on it. I think I did a pretty good job
of removing all traces of it, including registry keys and folders. I just
can't see the point of an application that makes a machine run so slow.
What do you find intrusive about McAfee? I buy the CD at Costco, so I don't
have to deal with their automatic renewal shenanigans.
