Once you setup your computer exactly the way you want it, download Norton Ghost. It allows you to save an image of your computer, that way if/when you fuck it up, you can easily restore it back to its original state.
make sure it isnt a mac
make sure you dont download a virus

Originally posted by Inactive Useri dont think they make viruses for macs
that may be true, SprNtrl, but seeing that the vast majority of people use Windows, most hackers target them. this makes using a Mac safer in a way.
That definitely looks interesting.
So on my list of (illegal) downloads is:
Photoshop CS3 (isn't CS4 coming out soon? )
deleting my old McAfee
get more ram and somehow move my hard drive which is currently stuck
Keep it coming, y'all.
So Kaspersky > nod32 like shinesolo suggested?
Are you fucking joking? It's easier to hack in some cases, and of course you can get a virus on OSX, it's just as easy and people are just as stupid as window users to allow it to happen.
You guys all know you can run UNIX and with some tweaks it'll have (mostly) the same feel as OSX. Or you could run OSX86. You guys realize this, right?
I've used both and can easily say that Kaspersky is just as great as nod32. For you, in particular, a person with a relatively old computer and low resources, and with a seemingly innocent digital agenda, nod32 is the right program for you.
Right now, it's defragmenting and all the problems are gone. My computer's a little bit laggy because of the whole defragmenting.
I still have no clue what that means, but it sounds good, so why not?
I just did almost every function that TuneUp had to offer, and my computer's definitely wayyy faster by at least 14x.
On a sidenote, if I were somewhat interested in XP themes, is it recommended? I heard WindowsBlind or ThemeXP can fuck up your computer and make it slower?
Thumbs up or thumbs down?
And even though I did the Accelerate your Download Speed in TuneUp, my download rate is still only 30kb/sec. Is this just because of my internet connection?
