nachdem die kostenlose Version aktiviert war, ging der computer mega lansam, mein t-online email account funktionierte nicht richtig. Dann die kostenlosen von Avira speedup gemacht und alles lief wieder normal wie vorher. Wahrscheinlich macht speedup den computer absichtlich langsamer, um ihn dann kostenlos wieder zu normalisieren. Kein fair play
