Some Tech News From the Road, Lima, OH edition

Here’s some things I’ve stumbled upon over the past few days that caught my eye.

First there’s news over on Gizmodo that Windows XP Service Pack 2 causes performance slowdowns on laptops. You can read the snippet and the standard Microsoft “there is no problem” response here.

Next up is an article on that describes places that viruses and trojans hide on startup. It’s a nice resource and includes several registry areas to look into. You can find the whole article here.

And on the spyware / adware topic there is an article on that discusses a USA Today column by Kevin Maney describing his issues with spyware and the issues and frustration that is building the trend to switching away from windows. You can find the commentary and the link to the USA Today article here.
