I got tired of constant problems with my GateWay PC...it now sits in the closet, maybe someday I'll have it reprogramed. I was using Registry Mechanic, and a few others...a lot...still had problems.
I bought a new iMac...it's coming up on a year now...never a problem. I liked it so well that I bought a second one for my wife about 4 months ago. Now we both appear to be having problem free use of the I-net.
Once you use a Mac, you never go back. Those commercials are pretty accurate.
I'm done with the PC route.

Norton virus and tools is a bloated and system resource hog, my advice is to avoid it like the plague. N be carefully with what you delete when you do mess with the registry, when in doubt leave it alone.

Apparently, the new NAV 2009 (?) is supposed to be less of a resource hog than the previous version. I haven't tried it though. Nor have I tried PC Tools, or Norton Tools since it killed my computer waaay back when.

I am a cheap b*st*rd..... I always use the free stuff. Spybot for malware + adware, Zonealrm for firewall, AVG for anti virus.
Microsoft has a website that will scan your registry, search for nasties like viruses, malware, etc. ...open ports etc. I actually had to use it to clean a computer yesterday. Took a couple of hours, but was very effective.

There are other tweaks you can use, but it's a lot of stuff to post here. PM me if you would like some other ideas.

I've fixed plenty of machines that registry cleaners have screwed up...I would advise against them
