HP's biz laptops are great - but yeah the consumer laptops come with a lot of trash. And you can just install a basic printer driver with HP printers discs. Watch what you're installing.

Same with Acer, almost took as long to uninstall the crap as it did to install doze.

BTW, any Norton program (other then Ghost 2003 which actually kicks major bum!) can do more then choke my chicken. They're junk! Total resource hogs that can't detect shit if the software had it's nose jammed right in it.

Have you tried the Norton removal tool which they offer on the Norton website? I think its supposed to totally remove any Norton product. It's the only thing from Norton that I can truly say that I like.

This originally started as a thread for AV programs and the like, and this isn't a program but a website and their use of a crap format. Gametrailers.com is really starting to choke my chicken with all the trailers that they are posting in QuickTime format.



No misterlarry time for QuickTime. QT is just too intrusive.
