General progress on the new box: software installations progress without big problems. Not sure if the scanner will work yet; installing that software package is the only place things seemed dodgy. However, I'm going to be happy to uninstall that if needed, and look for other software. No worries.
Uninstalled AOHell's trial version for excessive annoyingme-ness. Will also un-install McAfee once the current AVG is updated.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled Thursday.
