I used Macafee, then Norton but now use Panda as it is smaller but effective. I found Norton a bit clunky to use. [/url]

I have Norton Systemworks 2002 and am very pleased with it. Never has caused any trouble on my system. I've only used it with XP, so I dunno how any other OS will do. I love how the fact that I format my HD at least once a year gives me free virus definitions for life. It just keeps forgetting it's been giving it to me for two years almost (on a one year subscribtion :twisted: ). WinDoctor is helpful, and UnErase Wizard has saved me multiple times.

We use something called Sophos here at work and I have it installed at home where it is set to update hourly. It works like a champ. Between that and using ZoneAlarm for a firewall, I have never had any problems. I did find a couple of auto-dialers once and immediately sent them to the shredder, but the joke was on them basically since I am on cable.
