Howdy everyone!  I've been Googling some questions about improving my home PC and my work laptop's performance while making sure there's no ghosts in the machines as they say...  I've got the Pro version of Malaware Bytes and Norton Internet Security.  I'm a computer programmer/analyst by trade, so I know my way around creating web sites and databases and other misc stuff that goes along with being a software developer.  I do not know much about the internals of the OS or the Registry or best practices for securing PC's and the internet connection that goes with that.  The main thing I'm going to look at first is seeing what should or should not be starting when the PC boots.  I have much to learn in addition to a new programming pattern for work, but I like to learn new things (technical) especially if it'll help speed up and make the PC safer.  See you  guys around..
