    I used to run NAV corp. and IMO AVG is better, so simple and is just as good, for free

    I USED to like McAfee, but since they apparently have no intention of FIXING Internet Security Suite 6.0 (look at their message board and see how many people have the SAME problem), I will be looking elsewhere once the 'subscription' to virusscan is done. Nice to pay $70USD for a program that only 2 of its 4 components actually work.

    This is for McAfee:thumbs do :steam: :barf: :mad:

    I haven't got any qualms with McAfee. I've got a heap of PCs running from the Enterprise version, which all auto-update from a local server. Works a treat. :)

    The problems are with the Internet Security Suite 6.0. Apparently corperate stuff works fine.

    Many ppl seem to run into probs with their Norton software but I haven't had a prob so far over the last years. And belive me if it should start to act up it'll be history.. :)

    Norton, depending on the version, can use three startup processes and two services. This does cause significantly slower boot time. Having it running will result in a slower system as it uses RAM, hard drive, and processor power. I use task manager manager to end DefWatch.exe and VPTray.exe when I play games, because they a cause considerable slowdown. It might be different processes in regular NAV, but it still causes more slowdown than AVG. Nothing to worry about if you don't play games, though.

    Thanks for the link, Wiggo. I didn't even know what it was for, I just knew NAV Corp used it. Since I update manually regularly, time to toss that out of msconfig
    and speed up the boot time by a few hundred milliseconds.:D :laugh:
