Stay away from "SpeedBoot v1.5"
« on: February 07, 2004, 07:44:46 PM »
The uninstall has bugs and will not reset your orginal registry settings and you'll end up doing a manual uninstall which can be nasty.  For some reason the SpeedBoot uninstall doesn't put the Avast, Sygate, systray, and scanreg  back to it's original start up state.  Nasty uninstall.  Nasty!

Anyway, the program didn't speed any boot time that I can tell.  I'm laughing in hindsight but last night I wasn't! >:(

But of course I'm just a "*****" with a lot of computer experience and little knowledge.
The wind in the wires made a tattletale sound
And a wave broke over the railing
And every man knew, as the Captain did, too,
T'was the witch of November come stealing.

Well, thanks!  I appreciate it.  Nevertheless, I sort of took what he posted as a compliment and thought I would run with that for a while.
