Restore from backup takes half hour. Every item takes 1.5 hrs, as I keep everything is on a second hard drive Wink What's the time savings with the new solid state drives (vs scsi sata)?

My Mac is almost two years old. I'm told that app launch with the new solid state internal drive is almost instantaneous. But I'm not paying $750 for, what is it, 250G? The mechanical drive standard on the new machines is SATA-II and I'm told noticeably faster, anyway. I'm planning to get a new machine, but not until Lion and my apps coexist.

Restore from backup: if you had a virus, it's possibly you'd also be restoring the virus.

I once had a virus that after FIVE reformats and reinstalls still wasn't gone. How did I finally get rid of it? I changed the partition size. Apparently it was hiding in the dead tracks that weren't allocated to the previous partition.

I've had the same problems with viral partitions and/or the "master boot record". Use Win Command Prompt for the extra tools.

I did some SSD (drive) googling, and they're claiming one tenth of a millisecond versus ten milliseconds for reads; and writes at least 10X faster. People are claiming to install Win7 in under 10 minutes, including reformatting and reboots; which probably is 10X faster (for really meaty tasks). Not really what I had assumed...

I have been suggested a software called superantispyware. I don't know if you have heard of it?

That's really impressive. Though I'd like to see the price come down to $1 = 1G.

The 10 minute install has me wondering if it was from CD to SSD or from Flash Drive to SSD. Just a gut feeling... that there was a CD involved.

Virus is just simply annoying. I still cannot figure out why some people would have to make a virus just to destroy other computers.

Some people are just sick; some people are just evil. That's the way it is. That's how it's always been.

Very true, coaster. This is the reason why I hope there is a site that will be set simply just out there catching virus makers and designers, and putting hackers behind bars. I think the internet is really a place where everyone would feel safe.

I gather that Avast antivirus software is leading in the market. Well, I may well expect it since it is really good. The interface is also user friendly.

it sounds generic. You will be better off getting a well known brand in the market. Like PestPatrol. (Not to be confused with your neighborhood pest control company)
