    Default Don't forget to turn off your TurboTax update service

    Done with Taxes. Noticed my computer was running slow and hot. Found the Intuit (TurboTax) Update Service was in AUTO Start Mode (always on). Switched it to MANUAL Start Mode (Off until you need it) and the computer works right again. I've got an old slow computer, so you guys with quad, fast, machines might not even notice it. I guess programmers are getting even sloppier these days.

    I always turn off the auto-update on my AVG Anti-Virus because it takes FOREVER for the updates (I'm on dial-up). When I bought TurboTax last Tuesday I made it a point to put it on manual update to avoid the trouble.
    Funniest CPF thread ever. I promise it'll make your day.
