That’s it, Avast and Firefox gone! Time for MSE and Chrome.

Well after my HP laptop decided to hang every time I tried to click the “Start” button in Windows 7, I decided it was time for a clear out. So I booted from the recovery partition and reset it all back to factory defaults.

Now it runs like a dream again (it had been getting slower and slower). After getting various nags from Avast and finding Firefox consuming over 500MB RAM and grinding to a halt (ridiculous), I’ve decided to give Microsoft Security Essentials and Chrome a go. I only put them on last night but everything seems okay at the moment, I’m sure I will post here when I decide to have another whinge! 🙂
