Am I back?
This past couple of weeks has been trying to say the least, in respect to my laptop and connectivity anyway.
See about a month back we gave in... and that message that constantly tells ya
"Your computer is unprotected"
and coaxes you to try NORTON... yea that one.
Well, we gave in and did the "TRIAL"
at the end we decided NOT to purchase, and seems that was the problem.
I think NORTON took offense!
The laptop ran super slow, if we could even get connected.
When connection was made...more problems!
The IE kept crashing (not responding), even yahoo.mail would not work! And oh my goodness, forget FB :) games LOL.
It really got bad... worse became even worssserrrr.. Not a word, but better than some that some people would use :)
The hubby, decided enough is enough. Went to trying to work his technical magic on things.
He really is pretty decently 'self-trained' in working on our computers/laptops/tablets oh, and phones too :) Don't know what I would do without him fixing that stuff for me.
I have no idea what he did or didn't do... just that the end result was that the laptop was back to
FACTORY --- Out-of-Box
Nothing , nodda, zip
NOW ya gotta reinstall..... everything....
Ok, now you are saying ... mmmhummm now she has an UNPROTECTED system!
DANGER DANGER DANGER
Well not really, only for a couple of days.
See months ago, we had seen an item on HSN
(Home Shopping Network)
and decided that was what we wanted to get ASAP meaning soon as we had the spare $$$
SO, now was the time. Too much at risk.
About the same time as the NORTON trial was running out,
we went to hsn.com and placed our order.
So protection for 10 different PCs... laptop,desktop either .
Cool thing is each license protects for the life of that system.
Also includes lifetime updates.
So, now my current laptop is protected... as well as the next NINE that I may end up with. Doubtful I'll live long enough to wear that many out. LOL
They offer 3 or 10 licenses
Oddly enough the $ is the same for either one... so
I got 10, duhhh.
To be perfectly honest, only had installed a couple days now...
But I was amazed at the quantity of 'threats' it found and removed from my 'newly out-of-box' system!
I'll update on how it does... in future posts.
P.S. Keep watching... I have some really good BIG news coming up in a short short time.
For now , I have to be quiet... sworn to secrecy :)
