interesting... but for me, i prefer good ol' pc cillin by itself. i usually do a lot of things on my como and even though i have 1 g i almost usually (on a good day) use like 900mb or close to it. never over, but quite close. so running two in the background just doesnt cut it for me. and pc cillin does such a good job im happy. so yeah, if it works for u, then nice.

2) Norton Anti-Virus
3) Avast
4) PC-Cillin
5) McAfee
6) AVG

1 Being the best, and 6 being the worst.

I did tests on all of them, and it was Fix-It that managed to get viruses the others couldn't. Norton was second best. It is just for me every other one missed viruses.
swap 1 with 2 and 6 with 4 .. that sounds about right !

Norton is a superior product. If it sucks so bad then why are corporate/enterprise versions available for businesses? Major county facilities, school districts are using it and approved by ITs. I feel we're lucky they even make a home edition for us.

As long as you perform LiveUpdate often, you will be fine.
