I got such a good response about the best anti virus software -- Thought I would ask you what you think is the best set of tools for keeping computer shipshape? :?:

Norton's Utilities
System Suite
TuneUp Utilities
PC Bug Doctor
Or others??

Thanks for your replies ....

This is my favorite set of tools (and the ones I probably use the most):

Oh yeah -- I forgot the air blaster stuff. I cleaned out one computer the other day, and the dust in the room was so thick it looked like a smoking lounge. That particular MOBO hadn't seen the light of day in the 3 years it's been alive! *lol

I did too, but then I was also surprised by how many people weren't familiar with the term wysiwyg. Serves me right for making assumptions, I guess. :)

As far as I've ever been concerned, MB == Megabytes :)

*shhhh... I knew that, too, but there are other "necessary" tools to keep computers running efficiently. Besides, this was one of the first nights in awhile I was feeling humorous. That aside -- sometimes hardware fixes are just as important as software fixes, including cleaning the cobwebs out of the box.

//Edit -- musik's point is taken -- I agree the original post meant "software fixes" so ignore my plunge into the hardware aspect and have at it!

//end edit

*my apologies if needed.

Mega Breath... anyway I have something like that ANTO, but mine doesn't have as many screwdrivers....and it has a static wrist band, but I feel like a dummy wearing it.

I bought it cause it comes in a cool leather case, makes me feel professional at least.

I feel left out -- I didn't get the anti-static wristband with mine, Vladdrac! I just touch the closest electrical receptical first! STOP!!! I'm kidding -- don't do that!
