Re: [Vanguard ongoing glitches, August 12-13, 2019]

I enjoy checking my balances each evening during the 7pm news broadcast. Please don't spoil my fun by lecturing me on the evils of daily balance checking. Just because you don't check daily doesn't mean it is morally wrong for me to check daily. It's OK to check your account daily. Anyone not keepi...

Re: Family man who misses driving a fun car

I would test drive a Subaru Forester XT. 2018 was the last model year for the turbocharged XT. I have one and love it. Really fun to drive. No sports car but for an SUV it’s awesome. Like night and day compared to the regular engine.

Re: Antivirus software which is the best?

I would agree with everyone that says MSE is a fine choice. I've run it on PCs in the past (currently have a mac) with absolutely no problems. It's very unobtrusive and you don't even know it's there. That's the on I would install if I bought another PC. I've also used the current Norton product and...

Re: Antivirus for Mac?

I do believe the Mac is very secure. However I am concerned that the Vanguard online fraud policy (And Fidelity's also I believe) specifies that you must use an up to date antivirus program in order to be covered for a loss. I therefore use the free Sophos antivirus program and it seems to work fine...
