I have run mcafee for a year nearly with no problem at all. I will continue to use it.

I don't use one, don't need it, no offense to anyone, but honestly, most viruses don't just show up on your computer, you get them from the dumb things you open and not paying attention. I haven't ever gotten a single virus on my computer and don't plan to since I know that if I get a e-mail from someone I DON'T EVEN KNOW, I won't even read the subject matter, that thing is gettin deleted. And I don't even get those kinds of e-mails or anything like that so I don't even worry about it, just be cautious people and you won't get these things.

Norton sucks its a memory and resource and McAfee sucks cuz I've heard aweful things about it like: It won't come off your computer when you uninstall it or it slows the startup of your computer down just like Norton with startup I recommend using free stuff instead. Their prpblem free and at least your computer won't go slow. Here's my free security software list:

Firewalls:
Free Edition of Zonealarm http://download.zonelabs.com/bin/fre...60_631_002.exe (If got extra money to spend upgrade to Zonealarm Antivirus that comes with a firewall and antivirus it only costs like $29.95)

Sygate Firewall http://wcarchive.cdrom.com/pub/simtelnet/win95/secsys/spf.exe'))

Antivirus:
Avast Free Home Edition http://http://files.avast.com/iavs4pro/setupeng.exe

Ad-aware & Spyware Removals:
Microsoft Anti-Spyware BETA1 http://http://www.microsoft.com/down...areInstall.exe
Spybot Search and Destroy 1.4 http://http://fileforum.betanews.com...spybotsd14.exe
Lavasoft Ad-aware SE 1.6 http://http://esd.element5.com/affiliate.html?http://esd.element5.com/affiliate.ht...sepersonal.exe

No, Norton creates 26 registry entries and tells you how to run your PC and you can't overide its nasty little restart orders. PC-Cillian is awesome. TREND MICRO IS AWESOME. Norton's firewall.. wait.. what firewall?? LMAO!! HAHAHH! BURNED.
