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.

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 (http://www.grisoft.com/html/us_downl.htm) is better. ;)

Infact all my PC's are running AVG and ZoneAlarm atm (both the free versions) plus both over the last two years have not let me down. :thumb:
