Yep. They're out there... just watching, waiting for the opportunity for the unprotected to come online so they can pounce.

Norton and Mcafee are real bad at putting crap in your registry and make it near impossible for the average guru to remove it completely from your system. They have both been known to put crap on pc's to get money out of folks. Here is an example.

yes they do, which bogs the pc down and hogs resources. Norton has done it since day one.(im sure they would dispute this).

ive had a computer since 1985(commodore 64) i highly recommend to do "spring cleaning" on your computer at least once a year. On pc's that we use here and work i usually do it 2x a year.
IMHO this is more important in this day and time than ever.
Backup your files, programs and settings and reinstall windows. Then reinstall virus and firewalls, do windows updates, reinstall programs and files and update programs if needed. In that order.
Your computer will run better and probably last alil longer. And its not really all that hard, you can look at "reformat Windows ___" (blank being the version of windows you are running) in a search engine and just follow the instructions. Now it does take some time, but like anything else itll pay in the long run and your pc will run better and faster.

PCTOOLS-Registry Mechanic.

Autoruns daily and keeps your Registry clean and the PC in top shape. Helps prevent windows from eating itself.


Mine is all good as of 11 pm last night. Both machines are working fine on Internet, so most of my issues were probably TW and DNS being intermittent. Running fast now and getting to anything I need.

Now maybe I can start on my F-22 build tonight.....


Taking dad from nursing home to OSU again for staples removal and checkup. He is being Machine Fed (2 hr process), 4 times per day now via stomach tube. I'm sure the 4 hr roundtrip will be interesting today since he has to miss the Noon feed, that and with his Dementia. Will be turning up the radio.......

registry cleaners are good. but they miss alot also, but like mentioned above Norton and others are almost impossible to completely get rid of. but its just not just the registry that needs cleaned. reformatting is kinda like overhaul'n a car motor. nice clean fresh start

Usually the storage function will both charge and discharge accordingly to get to storage voltage.

I noticed my icharger does both discharge and charge to get to storage. but when it discharges the cells often end up out of balance. if it charges them to get to storage, they are well balanced.
