Hi,

An intreging question here, at least for me. In trying to keep my computer in good running shape I go through everything I got, anti spy programs from a numnber of sources, Window's maintanence programs and a whole buch of other concoctions for just such a job. But one thing that I wasn't looking for was in also updating to keep the computer running in tip top shap I've noticed that, it seems to be anyway, that some of the programs just keep adding on the megga bites to the updating programs without ever adjusting for intigration of the updates. I mean I'm finding that when I go to the Window's Add & Remove Program I have been finding the listings of programs with many more magga bite size readings than what I think should be there. One in particular is trobbling. Customizable Alerts is registering 4 Gigga Bites for the program on Windows Add & Remove. Is this right? What program is 4 Gigga Bites in size? None! So what gives, what don't I know about Customizable ALerts that it would have 4 Gigga Bites size here?
My first reaction is to Remove it right away. Only I thought that it might be prudent to inquire here first just incase I don't know something that I should on this. Anyone knowledgable on this point please let me know asap what the best course of action on this might be. I'd greatly appreciate that. Thank you.
