so good service there
on 16 November 2014
Machine was delivered quicly and well-packed, so good service there. Windows had been updated. Tha'ts good.
It came with the normal range of things-you-don't-really-want, like AVG anti-virus and Microsoft Office 60-day trial, which I removed.
But then I found Spigot, a search-engine redirector. Naughty, naughty.
Spigot is an application which redirects your search, which I discovered when I was about to download the Chrome browser from somewhere masquerading as Google, I got a bit annoyed at that.
So, I cleaned off any and all the applications originally installed by PortableParts-UK, and ran malwarebytes and ccleaner to disable and catch any other stuff.
My machine is, I think, now clean, but caveat emptor - be careful of what you buy cheaply.
Marked down to two stars, for the dodgy software. Not one star, because the price and quick delivery made up for it, but then I have enough knowledge to be wary of cheap offers. Others purchasers may not.
