Re: Computer problems O/T

I suffered from a virus a while back that did a neat trick of shutting my virus scan software off everytime it started. The McAfee website had step by step instructions of files to rename from the DOS prompt so virus scan could do it's job without the virus seeing it start. Ended up cleaning the vir...

Re: Where to get insurance???

Try Auto Owners if they do business in your state. In Michigan they are the only one at the moment covering the hobby through home owners insurance.
