What's antivirus xp 2008? it's appeared all of a sudden, lost my desktop pic and there's a "spyware detected, install antivirus etc" there instead. Run mcafee but that reckons there's no prob, this ntivirus thing reckons i've 455 viruses and need to install antivirus 2008 at a cost of £99! I wasn't born yesterday, can't uninstall av2008 either.

Quite right. Kids today don't know they're born. They should have to find their porn in hedgerows like what we had to.

its a fake anti spyware thing.  i recommend installing:
spybot search+destroy
ad-aware
AVG free antivirus
this should take care of your computer if you want it virus free and not being slowed down by the security apps.  maybe considering installing the zonealarm firewall too.  that works well but can slow down internet downloads

What are the benefits of having Mac?
Having had PC's since the good old Dos days, 386 and all that, I've never really felt a need to change to a system that so few companies support.
But feel free to enlighten me.

Usually, your wireless ISP will give you a security key before so that you can log in via your router each time.
If you've bought the router yourself though, you'll need to put the IP address of your router into a browser, this will usually display a web page where you can set your own security key.
What make's your router? Did it come with instructions?

Well for me it's just a super-fast computing experience. The machine boots up and shuts down far faster than any Windows system I've ever used. The OS is very intuitive and can be easily picked up, admittedly XP etc are also pretty good. Usually Apple launch a product with the vast majority of bugs already ironed out, so you don't have to get SP1 to however many.

From a security point of view they seem far less vulnerable to attack than other OS, and the built in Firewall actually does work and you need none other. There is plenty of good freeware out and about so you can usually get whatever you need free of charge, and at a decent quality. Neo-office is a perfectly good office suite and is completely free of charge.

mac probably isn't for everyone and the price can be a bit steep, but as someone who uses XP all day on the work pc, and mac for pleasure I know which one I'd use out of choice.
C'mon you Irons
