Stan give AVG a try...supposedly gets the "dirty lil buggers" that Norton & McAfee both miss...that's according to reviews on CNET...and some of the folks here in the Forum...The free vs is available over in the "Downloads" section...and the Pro vs...you can find at http://www.grisoft.com/html/us_index.ht ... f1784c2dde

AVG is really great about keeping you updated...I have been using the free vs for about 6 months now...after trying Norton, McAfee and Panda...plus a few more...no way I'm switching back to any of those...plus you will be delighted to find that AVG is not the resource hog that Norton is (too many antiquated definitions)... ;)
