Scan scan scan

I’m not PC bashing, really I’m not, and I do understand some of the problems of running the same operating system as 90% of the rest of the world. You see my office PC has just had a network-delivered install of Symantec anti-virus software. This is on top of the Windows Defender beta, Zone Alarm’s software firewall, Ad-aware, Hijack This, SpamBayes’ anti-spam software and who knows what else. My PC always seems to be scanning itself for spyware, viruses, trojans, malware, spam, iffy cookies, adware and the rest of it. Scan, scan, scan. Really there’s no wonder I gave up on the PC as a platform for getting any work done on.
