Out of the Blue

Happy 03/03/03 (or if you prefer to write it in the European method, 03/03/03). I think I managed to track down the source of my soaring CPU usage, it seems the "auto-protect" function of Norton Antivirus 2003 was bogging things down, especially when collecting mail, which turned Outlook from being a system piglet into full-blown system hog. I've got NAV's auto-protect turned off now, but still have email scanning turned on, so I guess I'm protected against most virus intrusions, but I guess if I can't get NAV's behavior under control I'll have to start exploring alternatives.

It IS hard to believe they don't charge for AVG, huh?

Part of the reason I like it so much is that it's not a resource eating hog.

Of course, part of the reason I moved all my e-mail, Word Processing and 'Net needs to Linux is because viruses are such a pain in the arse.
