Dangerous ... Norton 2007 -- replaced today

Ok, Norton Internet 2007 got to where it froze more than twice a week. I finally got AVG (an anti-virus, read about it on ZDNet.com) and installed it. I'm going to use the Zone Alarm firewall (I've used it before) and a couple of anti-spyware programs I've currently got.

Reading around I found out that Norton has gotten worse over time, and given I have a Windows XP Pro installation running, with all updates, and the updated Norton (a download from the site), it isn't too much to ask that I not have to uninstall and install two to three times a week ...).

Off to check the steaks. Rachel is reading the Dangerous Book for Boys right now, taking a break from Harry Potter novels.

The Dangerous Book for Boys
The Dangerous Book for Boys by Conn Iggulden and Hal Iggulden (Hardcover - May 1, 2007)

Really neat stuff. She says it is too dangerous for boys.

I installed Norton a few years ago and it gave me nothing but headaches. I totally uninstalled it and depend on my internet filter and Trend house call. So far no problems. Also much cheaper.

I read a summary of the Dangerous Minds Book recently. It sounds like a fun book. I love Rachel's confidence. :)
