  1. Bob, I d/l Avast Free, but regrettably it caused a huge slowdown of my normally fairly crisp and stable XP system, plus a number of other problems, so had to uninstall.Before it disappeared it DID pick up a medium class virus, which my paid Kaspersky has ignored for 2 years- which one is correct? Who knows.
    Thanks for your tips- usually very useful.
