Tuesdaily computer update

I've spent the morning uninstalling crapware from my computer and downloading the 100billion windows updates and decent antivirus software (Avast) and reinstalling the things I need to work.

This effectively kills said buffer, and there's not much of a safety net left, but being prepared in business means budgeting for regular expenses like this. I've been squirreling away income bits a little at a time towards this, so I wouldn't have to settle for something cheap when this moment came.
