(/Captain Kirk Scream)

I swear! McAfee is a *virus* all on it’s own. The things we do for security! It’s like the freaking TSA has set up shop in my computer. Not only does the firewall block access to the internet on startup (I have to disable the firewall, then unplug and replug my network cable), not only does it start scans which crash the computer, not only does it crash every time I try to download my e-mail, it makes everything run terribly slow.

I find myself booting into Linux more and more often, just to avoid the hideous slowdown incurred by running anti-virus software. On the plus side it’s been forever and a half since I’ve gotten infected by anything. On the negative side – is the cure worse than the disease?
