Of course the initial install takes only a short time, I was talking about security scans, those slow update downloads, SpyBot scan for spyware, (It
always finds spyware on a new installation) and configuration to make Windows forget where you have been and cookie management, which keeps
third-party cookies by default.
When you say that it always finds spyware in a new installation I suppose you mean all those programs that the manufacturers like to include in their
installations. Is that it?
Because if it is then that explains the difference, as I never need to do customer installations I always use the DVDs from Microsoft, only with
Windows and without all that garbage that computer manufacturers like to add to a fresh installation.
Not to mention all of the reboots after every install of every program. I set the machine up for speed and security, and it does take time, as
You don't need to reboot whenever a program says it needs a reboot, from what I have seen, many programs say that because that's what
they used to do with older versions of Windows, I have seen many programs saying that and working as expected without a reboot.
