I use Symantec corporate edition. (i.e. Norton) Works very well. However, I'll also say that I went a year and a half without virus protection and didn't pick up a single bug, simply by good surfing habits and being able to recognize viruses in email and never opening an attachment that I was not 100% sure of.

I used to use Dr. Solomon's Anti-Virus. After meeting with Dr. Alan Solomon at a hacking conference in London in '96, I was sold, lol.

I've since switched to Norton.

No, King Solomon's Mines was a movie :)

I guess Doc Sol & McAfee are the same company now

Ya, I think AVG really is bad it does not protect you. It just tells you were they are not how to get them off.

Actually I like the norton and Mcafee aware viruses that say everything is alright, then go and do a scan with AVG and it picks the virus off in the first scan. Maybe I should switch back to norton, then again I would need another hole in my head :lol: The only time AVG hasn't pulled a virus off for me was when a virus was in the restore section of a winME computer.

What's the scoop on MS releasing their own AV program?

They had an antivirus prog back in the DOS 6.0 days, the command was msav.exe but they stopped including it shortly after that.

hehe....

I would say Norton and mcafee are the best...
i would also agree that AVG is the worst antivirus to date, i had a virus, and it scanned and couldn't remove it...what sort of an anti virus leaves a virus alone to kill and tamper with other files..

really annoying, in the end the virus messed everything up and i had to re-format..

dont pick it lol...just go to store and pick up Norton Antivirus 2003 for £29.99 (summot like that in uk) and u will be safe
