So I've got this big hard-on to load this Great! New! Free! Efficient! Best ever! anti-virus software.
So I install this prick. First off: It scans the entire goddamn computer. WTF?
It's going to take HOURS.
Well, let it run.
Meanwhile, check email.
The email software starts to open -- CRASH!!
Oh well, let it scan; check that darned email later.
Yay! The scan's done!
I just opened the email client. It's trashed. Hosed. Wiped clean.
All my settings, all my email -- gone.
Jesus fucking christ!
Yeah, I'm wearing a big happy hat now.
