AMD and Microsoft are working on adding hardware virus protection to processors. They can protect against a certain type of virus i think its called buffer overrun. Pimp:beard:

I think they're making processors and software that work together together to stop the system from processing malicious code

I use Antivir Personal Edition, in my opinion it is WAY better than Norton

1. Norton was slowing the comp down
2. Antivir detects a lot more viruses
3. Antivir is free
4. Antivir uses barely any resources (even on my slow-*** 500MHZ P3)
