I had no idea it was so easy to crack a Win7 system -- without even using a LiveCD or anything.



Uninstalling McAfee, though? That's hard.

@woozle McAfee was never meant to be uninstalled. Just install Norton and see which one survives the ensuing resource war.

@SetecAstronomy @woozle you jest, but when doing desktop support (via the squad of geeks) this was better than 1/3 of the "my computer is slow now (does it have a viruss?1!?)" work that came in.

@jak @woozle Yeah. When I worked in a computer shop ages ago McAfee and Norton were the prime suspects for every slow computer. And removal was like pulling teeth.
