I set both of my parents up with PeoplePC. I installed it on my mother's computer.

Built a "new" computer for her. (Athlon XP 2200)
Disks used:

Win XP Professional.
Modem drivers
Norton AV 2001
People PC disk

Stuff was installed in that order. 2 Hours later, BANG! a virus. I had updated the Norton software too.

So, the virus ate a bunch of system32 files, so I decided to reinstall windows. I virus scanned all the disks. None found.

Bang! She gets another virus a few days later! I dont know what one, but anytime an old lady Mother Mugzilla gets a virus alert on her screen, it induces her to shit frisbees allo over the room, delete the virus, and not write down the name of the virus.

I don't know what People PCs deal is. sometimes, she cannot check er email, even right after logging on. No, the problem cant be duplicated by me.

I am probably reinstalling everything this weekend here at the house. I have the Windows SP2 CD, so I will be using windows firewall instead of zonelabs.

CAN ANYONE RECOMMEND A CHEAP ISP THAT CAN KEPP MY MOTHER HAPPY BY GETTING HER HER DAMN EMAILS WHEN SHE WANTS THEM?!?!?

NetZero highspeed. 14.95 a month and its as fast as DSL for non graphical/video web surfing. It dumbs down all the graphics to a lower resolution buts it very fast unless you are dowloading pictures or video.
If you want to see a pic at full res just right click and select view picture at full resolution.
I use it and love it.
