I've just started using my new Sony Vaio laptop, though I bought it before Christmas. When I tried to load the PC Advisor page it doesnt load completely, in Firefox 3.6.10 It is just a white background and text/links. It loads fine in Chrome and IE8. What can be wrong?
Also the laptop has McAfee Internet Security, Norton Online Backup, and Microsoft2010 Starter Edition.
I dont want any of these as Im using Microsoft Security Essentials, and I have a copy of Office 2007. How best to uninstall them? Use Add/Remove or use revo uninstaller? I seem to remember Symantec has an uninstaller on its site for unwanted software. Has Microsoft and McAfee got similar or will Revo do the job?
Thanks Im up to speed now on how the best way to uninstall.
However Firefox still wont display properly, there appears to be no images or colour. But its fine on IE and Chrome,also Ive just tried it on Firefox on my old laptop and it loads perfectly. Could it be something to do with this new Sony? Really hope not.
Final concern; it might be my imagination but I feel the Sony is running slightly sluggishly in comparison to the old HP. The HP is 3gig Ram and Amd dual core; the Sony is 4 gig ram and Intel Pentium p6100 dual core. Surely the new one shouldnt run slower? Could Symantec or McAfee have something to do with it? Im about to uninstall them now anyway.
Thanks for the feedback. Always remember that on a new desktop on a Laptop or other, then NEVER click on a short-cut. Always go to programs and features (add/remove in old XP) and choose uninstall. If you click on the initial short cut on the initial desktop folder then these software WILL install.
