    Just a warning, my laptop came with mcafee and windows vista installed,
    once i had registered mcafee my internet speed dropped to a crawl (even with mcafee protection turned off), the only way i could get my internet speed back was to uninstall mcafee, do people not test compatibility issues?

    Shouldn't there be a way to restrict a program access to the internet by means of Windows Firewall?
    Just set block it until when there is an update.

    That maybe true, but if these programs come installed by the seller they
    should be compatible surly, or was it my fault for registering mcfee?

    I don't think that you did anything wrong in registering mcafee.
    I can't say anything regarding the compatibility issue, but I guess speed change could be something not taken into consideration by the seller..
    Check with the seller about this, if he can't help you, then check with mcafee itself.
