Default Re: Virus/spyware software

I agree totally with dyserq; Norton does suck, but McAfee is even worse. So whatever you do, stay away from those 2!

If anyone wants a laugh, my cousin's mum had paid 50 for NIS '05, then decided it was rubbish (i'm not sure why, but anyway), so she went and spent another 50 on McAfee!

Anyway, my recommend AV programs are:

AVG Free
AntiVir (free)

Windows XP Pro 17" LCD Monitor (1280 x 1024)
nForce3 250 Chipset Athlon 64 2800+ w/ C'n'Q
1 x 512MB DDR400 CL3 SDRAM 40GB IDE 7,200rpm HDD (8MB Cache)
nVidia GeForce MX420 64MB PCI On-Board Audio

If you want to pay for an anti-virus, get Trend Micro is the best I'VE EVER SEEN. It has a firewall, anti-virus, and a little spyware detector. And they all work VERY well. There is a trial version for free at their site (30 days). Then after that to get more updates, you pay $50 for a year.

ALSO, their customer support is great and easy to work with. I highly recommend you guys trying this out.
