I recently networked my old (win 98) computer with my new (XP) computer so that both could access the internet.
I downloaded free zone alarm to the older computer and when it came to installing (an old version of PC trend was still on the computer) it said there was a 'conflict' with pc trend and could not install until PC Trend was deleted.
I duly deleted PC trend.
But why the conflict? I have PC trend on the new computer and zone alarm is NO problem.
Why did I need to uninstall?
And since then, on the old computer (and email is disabled, and it has only visited known safe sites - ie barely used online) the computer has gotten very slow, the 'turbo' light is not lit, and basically it is being far more of a boat anchor than it ever was.
Advice appreciated - a previous post about this went unanswered
