    I am on AOL and want to get antivirus software (I know this is hardware but could not see a software forum).
    I seem to remember seeing somewhere that Norton anti-virus doesnt run on AOL. There are 2 others that get pretty good write-ups and they are F-Secure Internet Security 2004 and Kaspersky Lab Anti-Virus Personal 4.5
    Can anyone help especially if you are on AOL and using any of the 2 anti-virus stated.
    Thank you
    :confused:

    I used to use Norton (before it all went belly up and refused to work anymore)

    I use AOL and I didn't actually know Norton didn't work with AOL. I guess you are talking about the email scanning are you ? (or is it something else?)

    Not sure about AOL compatability, but I (and many others) have been using AVG Antivirus by Grisoft for some time now. Regular updates and free for home users :)

    Be interested what others think to AVG also ?
