Well if you really want to replace Norton, I would recommend getting Fix-It. You get a lot more with it (a whole array of programs) and a great virus scanner. I run it with Norton just in case... and Norton is great, but sometimes Fix-It does a better job at eliminating any problem.

Ok, i got a trial of PC-Cillin. It doesn't seem to take up much system resources, scans faster than other AV programs i've used, and is easy to use. If it's as good at detecting as some of you say it is, then i may think about sticking with it...unless anyone else can make a recommendation?

why use them both at the same time? pc cillin works the best by itself. i wouldnt do it. takes up too much time and ram and its just a waste.
-edit- and sorry for the darn double post... forgot.
