      Personally I like AVP

      And you say people actually pay money for M$ Windows? (Does what it says on the URL) (The new car, with zero rust!) (My other site)
      Total re-design underway: on the whole progress is very slow as the car is taking up too much time :)

          Back in the days of the 200mmx machines, I found Norton to be a bit of a system hog. McAfee was much faster.

          But I use Norton now, so I guess my advice is a little dated...

            I have McAfee up and running here. No problems. They have an update button you just click. I think the latest version is automatic now.

            Basically, there is no best one. They all do the same. And they all eat up resources.

            I'd go with whatever is cheapest.

                Norton Antivirus all the way! I had too many problems with McAfee and have been using NAV for about 4 years now. I transfer about 60GB of data over the internet a month and have never had a virus. Automatic virus definition updates are the best!

                  Norton AntiVirus. I prefer the corporate edition (just plain wicked software), but that's a little steep for home use. 2001 or 2002 will do fine for home users.

                    i dont like the way nortan takes over your computer even when i disable all these auto scan stuff it still pops ups and scans your hdd when it feels like and moves all my files into quarinteen so i cant find em and then i uninstalled it and couldnt get files back. i think i installed system works 2002 and that takes over recyle bin and windows defrag aswell.

                    basically i didnt know how to use it properly, but id prefere i simple antiviral prog that i could just run now and then at my desire. i dont use one anymore.

                        I use NAV 2002 and NIS 2002, works pretty good and Liveupdate is great. I think AVP is probably a bit "better" in terms of finding trojans and such. Haven't used it in a year or two though.

                          well i decided on NAV 2002 and am rather satisfied. it caugh the virus i tried to send my machine as a test, and it even found a virus i had on my machine that i was unaware of. thanks for all your opinions!
