    I don't like Norton stuff. It fills the HD with .DLL's.

    I've got PC-Cillin 2003 and it works well, catches virus attachments in emails as it downloads them.

    I have Norton at home. Always gone with Norton. McAfee I have always thought of as the cheap skates software as they always seem to give it away for free. :laugh:

    The antivirus also checks your emails.
