Running Old Laptop in Safe Mode

  SebBux 14:03 24 Jul 2014


I'm having to use an old laptop at the moment, and it's very slow. So i have been using it in safe + internet mode. Is this ok to do this? Are there any problems i could be causing?

SebBux , not a good idea. Fine for a short while but you will be unprotected. You are running on basic programs with no AV and only your router's firewall which is still basic.
