Happy and virusfree

Posted by Lifecruiser in Useful

Life is fun. At least if you’re virusfree and have a working computer. Which I have. Now :-)

It took me a while to fix it. Totally fresh install on formatted harddrives, because I had so much crap on it and the old Win installation were not quite functional since a while back.

And yes, I had backups. On most the important stuff. I think. We’ll see if I miss something later…

I did run a lot of online virus scans, just to make sure there is no virus there any longer.

I opened the computer to dust it too. Probably the dust made it park the head in the drive and freeze it, so better to clean it while I was on the go. Or as I use to say: while my pants were down anyway ;-)

Now comes the tricky bit, to keep the computer as clean as possible and not begin to load it with all kind of unnecessary stuff…

I don’t bother to install Norton Antivirus again, it take too much space and I decided to install avast antivirus instead. I really like what I’ve seen and heard about it so far. And it’s free - awesome!

I will stick to Lavasofts AdAware to check for spywares and malicious content, it’s very useful.

    Great to hear you’re virus free again. Now no downloading from naughty sites anymore okay? lol (sorry couldn’t resist that hehe)

    Lifecruiser: I’ll try to resist the temptation, but it’s gonna be tough ;-)
