    I have a new compaq presario 1200 which came with McAfee Virus Scan preinstalled. When I tried to update, I was unable, so I called McAfee. They told me it was because I had version 4.0 and needed 5 or higher. I went to their web site and downloaded according to the instructions they had e-mailed me. Within a day many things went haywire with my machine. I called Compaq and we ended up restoring to a time frame before I uninstalled 4.0 and installed the new version of McAfee. Everything went back to normal except for the static coming out of my speakers. I can get no satisfaction from Compaq as they contend it is a McAfee problem, and dealing with McAfee is an exercise in total frustration. Can anyone out there help me?

    If I'm not mistaken (hmmmm), I believe Compaq has had an issue with speaker noise for quite some time, check on their site, I think it is a bios issue.
