Re: McAfee uninstalled avast?

That is not the problem.

On all of the machines she has access to she's unwittingly uninstalled Avast for some McAffe [trial-ware] bundled with Adobe and/or [edit] Suite updates; is there a dummy instal that will block McAffe and prevent it from pulling this [BS]?

McAfee uninstalled avast?

I'm typing this from my Mom's machine.

I had installed Avast! with an appropriate license, however it has been replaced by the 'trial' version of McAfee.

How do I prevent this from happening again?

Re: What Kind of Soldering Iron do you guys use?

I generally buy the cheapest availble as too many people have taken mine and then 'lost' or 'forgotten' it.

Wellers are nice though, I used to have one.

To those waiting on a package from me.

Sorry, my bad; I knew the postal strike was inevitible but I did not expect it to drag on as long as it has (apparently their union is too smart to accept a government pension plan with a poison* clause like mine has).
