Pretty good spam blocker

My Norton subscription wanted more money again. A computer geek friend on another forum ( radio controlled helicopters) in Norway recommended Comodo.

Its free software, with firewalls, spam blocker, and virus scan. I loaded it up about three weeks ago. I love it. Especially the spam blocker and how it works.

Take a look before paying for Norton or mcAfee:

I use Avast. It's an eastern european product free for home use. Very nice and works quite well. I dislike Norton a great deal. Avast has a nice auto update feature too.

BTW, I found someone that will ship your AC adapter.

Thanks Paul,
We found one of the photo/electronics companies in NYC that would take the order. We had it shipped to near Aspen, where we are going tomorrow for the weekend and will pick it up there. Looking forward to finding a Best Buy this weekend, I havent been in a US store in over a year. Going for Wifi goodies, to increase range. Gonna be like a kid in a candystore. Just hate the part about having to wear shoes.
