Computer RANT!

The new Dell has arrived and I am in computer HEAVEN!!

I am VERY Dissatisfied with Time Warner Cable's Roadrunner Service though...they do NOT provide virus protection for new computers running Windows 7 64 bit.

I have already chatted with their technical support people and told them exactly how dissatisfied I am.

With all of the money we pay Time Warner....between our TWO accounts...they could at least provide us with the Security Software that was promised to us when we signed up for the contract.

Lovely....their tech support representative told me to use the third party software that comes free with the computer.


I am in a rage.

I apologize for the vent.

That's OK.
But you will LOVE your Windows7 Dell - I really love mine!

I use the Microsoft security essentials, Malware Bites, and Spybot Search & destroy. I scan for updates daily and run them every day too. No probs!

Enjoy. Try Firefox and Chrome web browsers too...

Aloha from Hawaii my Friend!

After Vista, a stone tablet would have made me smile. I do like Windows &, and I chose to get my own security because I do not trust my providers. They lie. They always lie. But then... my husband says I hold them to their word and nobody else does. Why not? They breach and misrepresent. I made them give me credit toward our account. Because... they lied.

Sometimes you just have to say it. I am happy with the Mac and look forward to other Macs in our future. At least you are happy with your computer.

I saw via your CommentLuv link you had a computer rant, so had to see what it was.

First, congratulations on your new computer. That's going to make life a lot easier. For security I signed up for the free version of Avast. I've been using it for about two years now and am thoroughly pleased with it.

In the meantime, happy blogging!
