    "Crashed my computer multiple times"

    September 1, 2008  |   By hexxx

    Pros

    none so far can't get it to competently install or uninstall.

    Cons

    can't get it to install or uninstall. Had to uninstall my anti-virus to stop endless errors and warnings. Not like an anti-virus is important :(

    Summary

    this beta needs way more testing. Wrecked my weekend, lucky I also have Firefox or I'd have no internet without reformatting my hardrive which it looks like I'll have to do i I want to use windows updates or programs that only use IE. Bad program for my 2 year old HP computer.

    Beta 2 won't let you use your MS Outlook. Wants you to use a hotmail email address. Good luck if you do. I had to do a restore to get rid of it.
