    its all really a matter of opinion, i feel safe with what im using, and its picked the nasty "handy virus" up, im using norton 2003 pro, however i also recommend pccillin and mcafee and currently have them all shared....

    I had mcafee on my PC last year and it really slowed down the performance of it so I uninstalled it and then found that non of my MS Office programmes would work anymore (including Outlook).

    I then uninstalled and reinstalled Office, but no joy.

    I had a scout about on the net to see if anyone else had had the same problem after uninstalling and they had. It would appear that Mcafee attaches itself to Office and takes some vital componants with it when you uninstall. It's a pity that they don't bother to tell you that at the outset.

    So. the moral of the story is - Mcafee is for life not just for Christmas kids!!!

    This is my opinion and that of several close friends, PC-Cillin 2003 is the way to go. In my experience the only people I have ever known to get infected by a virus were running Norton, now I am not bad mouthing Norton, it may have been the users fault in not keeping it updated, however PC-Cillin in my opinion updates more frequently (every day or sometimes several times a day and it totally automatic. My pick is PC-Cillin and I have used Norton and Mcaffe in the past.
