"The PC equivalent of putting sand in your gas tank."1.0 starson by tycan
Pros: It looks nice and it updates a lot
Cons: I think I need to reformat my drive and reinstall Windows
Summary: I purchased CA Security Suite 2007 with a special offer that came with a free copy of PC Optimize. That's where the problems began. After communicating with CA tech-support, it turns out that the current version of CA ISS 2007 on offer was completely incompatible with PC Optimize and was guaranteed to cause problems when used together. A sheer stroke of genius on CA's part. Great going guys!
After uninstalling PC Optimize and performing a System Restore I was still having problems. Firefox, Opera and IE started sucking up 100% of the CPU. Browser windows could not be shut down via the Task manager, requiring a re-boot. I know Firefox has a history of memory leaks but I've been using it for six years without a problem. I unsintalled CA ISS, manually removed all remnants from my registry and performed a System Restore again.
