There comes a point when you start to wonder if computers are worth the effort. Twelve hours I've been trying to tackle my own little problem and one hour of that was spent on the phone with Symantec support.

Having finally removed all the anti-virus utility files sprayed around the system, we thought we had solved the problem but were stymied by the loss of the Internet connection. "OK", I said, "I'll deal with that part with Microsoft, so let's try and get the anti-virus reinstalled", which we did and now the bloody thing is back where it started at eight O'clock this morning. So near but so far and I give up, I'm out of ideas. It seems that any attempt to re-install anti-virus kills my system dead.

I went for a run along the seafront to try and de-stress, I've lost an entire day's productivity and tomorrow, I need to try and find the time to take the aircraft over to Deanland to have the propeller checked over. There's far too much vibration since it's been adjusted and this needs some attention before we have any ambition to fly it over to Dublin.

By the way, if you ever have to try and manually uninstall Norton System Works, then don't. Use a shotgun instead. Posted by Hello
