This will follow installation of windows 7 on an acer 6510 laptop.
Dual core 2.0 gig processors
4 gigs ram
Loading went flawlessly.
All basics work, sound, network.......
Comodo antivirus/firewall would load, but would not run properly.
It would not allow updates or running the antivirus scan so uninstalled.
Avg 8 was loaded and allowed update durning install phase was successful.
Zonealarm would not load, .dll issues
Loaded ccleaner, defraggler, glary utilities, safari browser
NOTE: I.E. is version 8.0
Using safari, downloaded "pctools firewall plus free edition. (8.1 megs)
NOTE: DON'T INSTALL FREE GOOGLE TOOLBAR!!!!!!!!!!!!(OP OUT WITH RADIO BUTTON CLICK DURNING INSTALL.
I am NOT installing the connected antivirus (threatfire) that comes with the firewall.
I am choosing "normal user" as opposed to expert-for simplisity sake-I may try later.
The installed firewall was not on by default. Double clicking brought a box from action center with options:
get different program online
I am choosing pctools firewall
New popup box:
yes i trust the publisher or
No, i would like to verify the identy of the publisher
I am choosing yes, trust
The program loaded and became funtional-you must manually place it on toolbar
Ccleaner was configured and run-No Issues
Glary utilities was configured and run-No Issues
Defraggler: It was able toi analyze fine as well as defragging (225.4mgs of fragmented files)
Interesting note: with vista and xp on my laptop I could not log into ATS (look, yes, but no login), however, with windows 7, no
Ran windows update and downloaded needed updates
