Having trouble updating mcafee on vista
Some of the 'successful' solutions on the boards were SO complicated and still more miss than hit.
Also after 3 years there is no noticable slow down in my computers performance, I have never known anything like that with any previous version of Windows. My best advice is to save up for W7 and dump Vista as soon as possible.
Dell finally agreed it was a motherboard issue but would not replace it free, stating the laptop was out of warranty, even though Dell had documented our MANY calls from the month we purchased the laptop.
Needless to say, Dell has lost THIS family business as customers.

Over the lastseveral months, I've gotten updates from Windows.

I found that AVG's paying plant worked the best, plus I ran quick restore on my computer, after emptying cache, history, cookies, and the lot of other temporary items.
