    I've always noticed when booting up it said S.M.A.R.T. capability enabled.Today something odd about a virus came up then when it came on it said S.M.A.R.T. disabled.I have windows ME and Norton antivirus and Firewall.A system virus scan was fine and its all working ok.Any idea why its disabled or if I shouls be concerned?
    Thanks for your help.I don't know much about this :confused: Alison

    Welcome to the forum!

    Here's a link with some basic information. http://www.geocities.com/~budallen/smart.html

    In the meantime, it would really help everyone if you could be more specific about the message you saw....

    Post back in more detail.

    Thanks for ansering me.This is a great site.I can't be very specific about the message.It was early and I can't remember it properly.That'll teach me to write things down!! It mentioned the BIOs and something about a virus and I had to press a button to get the start up to continue.It wasn't the usual start up screen.Then Norton had no virus definitions and I had to do a live update to get them back.Sorry if I'm not giving enough info.I could tell you in detail how your body works but this hunk of plastic leaves me looking like a thicko!!! Thanks for trying to help .Alison
