I agree I won't put up with slowdowns. If I notice it's slower, I try and tweak it. If I can't I uninstall. Try something else. Since many products are now using some form of web protection that seem to slow down surfing. I tried several products before picking one. As I said early in this thread I tried KIS 2009 could not fix the slow down problem. It's funny it came up today. Back when I was trying to figure out how to speed up Kaspersky I called a guy that I knew had KIS 2009. Frank and his Dad both use it. He said neither of them had any slow down at all. Today he came by my house while I was on the computer playing poker. While talking I went to several webpages. He said Holy **** your lighting fast. Well to make a long story short, He left here was going home to uninstall KIS and test without it.
