    I've never done a check disc before after reformat...here's the question; I jusst bought my dad a new computor, haven't done anything to it yet, but to show him how to defrag, I ran the utility...ha, this box is badly fragged, even though it's new...I'm wondering if this is normal, or did i get somebody's returned computor?...also, mcafee, the worst virus program was allread installed when I opened the box...I never heard of that either...any input?

    Where did you get the box from?

    Dont worry about it being defragged when you got it.. thats quite normal.. PC vendors often forget things like that. Just defrag ya-self. :)

    As for the virus software.. thats again just the choice of the vendor you got the PC from.. McAfee & Norton are the best Anti-virus software programs.. and most commonly used by professionals worldwide.. be happy you got it.. it certainly wont cause problems.

    I don't know where you got that thing, but you should take it back. No way should it be in that kind of shape. You must have bought it from a place that is not to well know. Mcafee is no good now. Norton is the one. Now on to another subject seeing I have your full attention. LOL. I sent in some tweaks and answers to some of you and when I am notified that I have had a reply, I can't get it at the site they send me, which is the one that I replied too but no reply for me. It must be a simple matter on where the reply is, but this ole man does not know. Send me some help on it if you can. I have sent two requests for help, but none yet. I don't want to put my e-mail in as I just changed ISPs and cut out all spam or other stuff I don't want. Listed are the good folks on here tha sent replys that I did not get. fliehigh-al ehouse-GZFirestorm-Eproxus-Ramanuman-Rigsta-gonads-xsivforce, And you dealer. Get help to me someway. I feel sooooostuuupid. Bob Y:confused:

    thanx roby...I'd like to get other input too, no problem bringing this box back, I'm probably gonna do it...

    as far as your email notifications, I'm flattered you asked me, but I'm not afiliated with this board, I'm just here a lot...post the problem on the feedback or forum problemsection of the main page...good luck
