    good Antivirus software that doesn't hog resources

    Years ago I asked for a recommendation on this very website and was given replies from several that Eset nod 32 was the best. I went with them then and never changed, although I think they just go by Eset security now. I have it on my tablets, laptops and my pc.

    System Restore Question

    I am having trouble restoring my Sony Vaio laptop to factory specs but I didn't want to keep files. I made the restore discs but when I tried to restore it came up with an error. I thought not saving all the info would be easier but seems its not. Just frustrating.

    Games you play that you never get "sick" of?

    Left 4 Dead 2. That is one of my favorite games and there are so many mods and maps being made for it that it's always fun to play. I am totally hooked on Far Cry 3 single player. This game is so much fun but when I want to play with friends I usually play left 4 dead 2. Love the zombies :)
