    How to improve visual clarity of my computer

    Could using multiple browsers have any impact on this problem? I use Google Chrome as my default browser but occasionally use IE. I prefer Chrome but have recently noticed that iE9 seems much faster than previous versions used to be.

    SOLVED win 7 startup issue

    i agree that avg overdoes it in trying to get people to upgrade to the programs you pay for, but i figured all free anti virus programs do the same. Maybe i should try one of the ones on the list like Avira. I have just always stuck with a program if it worked for me and AVG has worked well. I...
