    It may depend if you want to pay for an Anti Virus Program or not. I use AVG with XP. It is free and gives free updates. You can find it at www.grisoft.com

    The biggest mistake EPoX made was goin' from Norton AV to PC-Cillin. It came off both my XP and SE PC's as it's more of a hinderence than a help plus it did some real weird stuff and couldn't be configured any different. :thumbs do

    AGV went back on instead. :thumb:

    I've found pc-cillin unloads itself when you least expect it. Is it possible for another prog or site to do this because only two weeks ago a virus fubar-ed my system, with cillin installed.
    If you truly love something, set it free. If it returns then it is yours.
    If it doesn't then hunt it down and kill it!

    There are a couple of worms around now that will specifically disable your AV software if not up to date but atm PC-Cillin just plain sux. :thumbs do

    There are better alternatives out there even the free Grisoft AGV is better. ;)
