    Hi guys,

    I would like to know from you IT techs, what is exactly wrong with my setup; assuming my computer meets the hardware requirements is there any thing wrong with what i normally use;

    Win XP SP2
    Firewall enabled (if no hardware firewall, then i add in ZA aswell)
    DVD Shrink
    DVD Region-free
    Remote Administrator (depending on who the user is)
    Net limiter

    I disable remote connections, and send details to MS...

    Generally thats it, there other like office and that, but wont go there, cuz the list is forever...

    I am fed up with people telling i should do this instead, but when you give them the computer or laptop to fix themselves, they either cant fix it, or just walk away!

    sorry, having a bad day... :x

    Nothing at all wrong with it cheek. Use the programs that you feel best get the job done for yourself and ignore what others say! 8)

    Not sure I fully understand the question, who are these machines for? what exactly are they saying you should be doing instead?

    generally for home, so web browsing, playing games, not hardcore games, printing photos and that, the basic stuff...

    AVG for example, "they" say, dont use that, its no good, use Avast instead, and win defender? (ms new prog)...

    my argument to the person was; this dude (guys laptop) doesn't know much about computer, all he wants is his computer up and running, the programs im using does the same job as what you are using, just a different name, albeit he is working for I.T., he thinks i should do what he says, wan*er, one thing he doesn't realise, is that i know a hell of a lot more than people realise...

    in the end, i explained to the guy whos laptop it is, the difference between the 2 programs... which is nothing, both a free, and both does the job, as long as you update your definations, dont open any files from people you dont know, always virus check files from people even if you know them, then it should be ok...

    i want to go home...

    Ask the guy why it is that if he's so good why are people getting you to fix their pc's?
