    McAfee is a POS in my experience. I'm using Norton Antivirus 2005 Beta which so far is decent (and free). It's just become bloat over the years.

    If you want a free, proven one, use the AVG scanner from http://www.grisoft.com/ .

    I haven't found one I'd trust.


    Common sense is a much better weapon, and it actually works.

    Ad-Aware is NOT an anti-virus program, it is a spyware removal software.

    No, AdAware is only spyware

    I have Norton Systemworks 2003, AdAware and spybot search and destroy. It seems to offer ample protection.

    IMO, Norton are the leaders in Anti-Virus software...

    Perhaps the leaders, but their product only works 20% of the time in my real-world applications. I don't even bother reccomending it to clients anymore, it's just not worth it.

    I use AVG on my PC, though tbh it hasn't had much work to do really. McAffee is definitely the worst - it destroyed my last system from the inside out.
