Heh, we tried that on the Win2k laptop which I used during an internship... And you know what ?

In the McAfee vs RAM upgrade fight, McAfee still wins ^^' It's just impressive : that PC runs perfectly smoothly all the time, even when doing some intensive computation, unless McAfee starts to do something.
