Some readers may remember i had some blue screen problems a short while ago. I removed windows defender and spywareblaster, on account that they may be hogging resources on startup (and i had downloaded spaywareblaster recently at the time, and it makes sense to wonder if recent additions are causing problems). So i think ill steer clear of spywareblaster just in case. The BSODs did stop after i got rid of those progs.
Im also considering getting rid of iobit defrag. I'm not sure defrag is necassary for me at all, and it has never gone beyond "good" hard disk optimization. It isnt a security application i know, but thought id mention it.
