Tune Up Your PC

I did something good for our PC today, I gave it a much-needed tune-up! OK, I'll admit it - I didn't actually do the tune-up, I called the Norton PC Tune-up Service and had an agent do it all for me. First, an evaluation was performed on our PC and then an agent worked remotely to fix any problems and get things running like new. Once the agent was finished, our PC was re-evaluated and a report with recommendations was generated. The agent worked quickly and efficiently, he kept me informed the entire time, we were done in 45 minutes - and I didn't have to leave the comfort of my office chair once!

Does your PC need a tune-up? Does it take ages to start up, or does it slow down when you open multiple programs? The Norton PC Tune-up Service allows Norton experts to connect with you one-on-one and directly access your computer via the internet so they can run diagnostic tests and fix any problems while you watch. They will do a full scan to evaluate issues affecting performance; they will fine-tune key areas to improve speed and stability; they will assess and ensure comprehensive protection and security and, finally, they will recommend steps to ensure top performance. Now doesn't that sound like some much-needed TLC for your PC?

For more information on this neat service, visit Norton.

*UPDATE: Contest Closed*
I have three Tune Ups (valued at $69.99) to give away to three lucky readers! Just be one of the first three to leave a comment on this post and I'll send one your way.

Keep your cuddlebug safe and snug on the road

These days, I seem to spend a lot of time ferrying my daughter from one place to another; my social butterfly has a far more hectic schedule than her dull mom! Luckily, I have a fabulous Britax carseat that leaves me confident she's as secure as she can be on our frequent car trips.

However, I do worry about how safe she'll be when she outgrows her car seat and has to transition to a booster seat. I've seen how easily booster seats can be jostled around, even when executing something as mild as a tight turn. When the lap belt becomes slack on a booster seat, stability is compromised and the child is at risk for injury.

Thanks to MomCentral, I've been alerted to a product that will safely secure a child in a booster seat to prevent potentially life-threatening injuries. SeatSnug provides an easy solution that will allow seatbelts to perform as intended. The small SeatSnug device attaches to an existing seatbelt and stops seatbelt slack from developing, thus ensuring that the child's seat is properly and safely secured during travel.

Once installed, SeatSnug is intended to stay on the seatbelt at all times, but it offers flexibility with it's "on-off" feature. The "on" position is used to safely secure a child in a booster seat, while the "off" position allows the seatbelt to function normally if it is not being used by a child in a booster seat.

Car accidents are one of the leading causes of death and injury for children, and the failure of seat belts to properly secure children is a leading contributor. SeatSnug is about "saving children's lives and reducing injuries one seatbelt at a time." Visit and learn how SeatSnug can help protect your cuddlebug in the car.
