Been reading here a lot and registered again today. Couldn't remember password of 1st registration and never did get it in my email when I tried.
I've learned a lot and taken a ton of notes, but am still not too bright about much of it. I have a load of questions
and hope you all are patient. It's not that I don't want to go look up stuff on my own--I do it often, BUT many times I'm just too scared to do the recommended because of not understanding all of it.
For instance, I just bought a Dell Inspiron 6000 that came with 15 months of McAfee......I've been using AVG on my other computers for over a year now and am comfortable with it, knowing it is highly recommended. I also use ZoneAlarm, Ad-Aware, Spybot, and CCleaner.
So far, on this new pc, I have added Ad-Aware, Spybot, CCleaner, and AVG---though I haven't run AVG yet at all because I know (from you all) that I shouldn't have TWO AVs. I don't know what to do with McAfee. Add/Remove or just disable or what??
And what about the McAfee Personal Firewall Plus?
Or should I keep (or am I stuck with) McAfee for the 15 months and THEN get AVG back?? I THINK I'm of the understanding that AVG is more popular but not positive.
I've read the rules, but when I'm reading old posts (just to learn) and have a question, can I go ahead and bring the post back up to the top with my question on the same subject IF the person has gotten their fix already?? Or do I need to post my own Topic when I have questions on subjects that've already been covered?
