I said before, Panda Antivirus Platinum 7.0 or Avast Home 4.0. I use Panda, but have heard that avast is just as good.

I have had poor experiences with Norton in the past. Norton itself destroyed my systems. It runs like 5 processes and like 50 megs total. Sad to say i have no virus protection now and my computer runs better than ever.

well, theres a new virus called 'attack'

i think it cant be detected cause it can figure out when its being detected and then will stop running . . .

viruses are getting more advanced . . .
