Is there a recomendation of protection software that offers more than 1 year of updated virus definitions? I have a 900mhrz mach running ME for an OS.

Default anti virus program

Right now I use trend microsystems house calls, but it deems the trojan on my mach at home uncleanable and undeletable. I will try AVG. That sounds good.
Thanks..........Rick

I would recommend McAfee; and just buy a new version every year. its what I would do if I bothered with Virus Protection or Firewalls - that is the only truly free way.

you can scan and delete virus's for free at:

http://trendmicro.com

When a virus cannot be deleted it is usually because it is in memory. Boot into safe mode ,run your viral scanner and then delete.

try this also.... http://www.pcpitstop.com go there, register and run the full scan....it does everything, spyware, viruses, badly written programs even, and tells you how to get rid of them. I go there at least once a month and scan my computer...It's great.
