Lovely bit of junk art, Bill!

"Main Computer"...sounds like your house is festooned with computer, all attached to a dicky super-computer in the basement!
Bill Phillips: It does sound a bit grandiose! Actually now i only have this and a tablet. I used to have another PC but that has now gone
That's unusual isn't it?
Good luck with your computer - I can sympathize, for sure!
Bill Phillips: The panels are of different heights are represent the number killed over a two month period. The memorial is to mark the battle of Gheluvelt in 1914 which was part of the Ypres battle. The battle is not well known but it was important as had the Worcestershire regiment not held their position there was nothing behind them to stop the German army and the war could have been over very quickly. In fact although they retook the village of Gheluvelt the German forces retook it only days later but their momentum had been lost

I think this is a close-up of the virus which is affecting your computer's gubbins
Bill Phillips: It is an interesting memorial. some people hate it

I had to get rid of AVG some time ago - it was slowing everything down
Bill Phillips: I had problems with an earlier version and got rid of it but for the last few years it has been fine.....they have clearly updated something and it is a disaster! I am not going to use it again

This is an unsual installation for Remembrance Day.

(I have installed AVG, too - next year I have to buy a new computer. Recently only a new battery has to be put in.)
Bill Phillips: I think I am getting near to getting a new one too, although this one is not that old

See my reply to Elizabeth about the memorial
I found our two computers ago that you must physically uninstall all versions of AVG before you install the new one.
Bill Phillips: I have had it with AVG
a nice shot of the installation, Bill. i like the filled up crop.
Bill Phillips: Thank you Ayush

I would not have known that this was a war memorial to honour those lost in conflict. To me, it looks like something that has been fly-tipped. Get a Mac next time; no need for virus software.
Bill Phillips: Next time you are up here I will take you to Gheluvelt park. You might change your mind

I'm not changing to a Mac.
A most unusual memorial isn't although your notes help with the description of its meaning. I have got AVG on both my tablets but have been using Avast for a long time on my PC and, fingers crossed, it has generally behaved very well. My son also uses Avast on his laptop and I know several others who are users also.
Bill Phillips: I might have a look at it. At the moment I am just using the windows defender which is of dubious worth
Try Sophos, Bill - I use it on my Mac and so far (touch wood) it's been OK.
Bill Phillips: I might do that thanks Tom
