A new laptop HDD and security questions...
OK, so two questions...
1. My PC laptop has been acting up recently, namely it won't boot up, goes into repair mode, and then eventually (sometimes hours later) it works. I've tried a clean install, but to no avail. I've run full virus scans, and checked the disk, but nothing is showing up as a problem.
Because it's an intermittent problem, I suspect the drive, even though it's not showing up as an issue. So, my thought is that I should buy a new drive. Currently I have a WD 640GB Scorpio Blue, which came with the machine. Any recommendations for where I could buy a new drive of at least that size?
2. Two years ago I bought a 3PC/2year licence version of Kaspersky internet suite. It's now coming to the end so I've been looking around to change. I've now got a Mac to add to the hardware. My two top contenders are Trend Titanium (this will cover 3 PCs (1x Vista, 2x Win7), Mac and iPhone/iPad) and Bitdefender Sphere, which will cover all the computers, including a netbook that is just on windows defender, but not the iPhone/iPad - although I'm not too concerned about them. So, again, any recommendations, I want something that works well in the background without giving me pop-up ads, and don't mind paying, but don't want to be wasting money on unnecessary stuff.
My comments are just my words - it's your mind that finds the meaning you want to find.
