One would think that a reasonably high-end laptop computer - such as, say, the one I'm currently using - running a standard virus scanning program such as McAfee - would have enough CPU cycles to both do its weekly virus check and let me get something useful done, be it programming, browsing, composing emails, or what have you. One would think. And sometimes one would be right. But not always. Every once in a while McAfee gets so busy reading files that everything else freezes for a few seconds. Which ticketh me off.
Sigh. Oh, well; this is what I get for living in Windoze land.
