Default So, what anti virus protection do you use?

I've had Norton for years but they're starting to **** me off. My subscription has expired but I notice when I click on renew it takes me to their website and a renewal costs $39.99. But if I simply do a search for antivirus programs, I can download the entire new 2009 Norton antivirus for ten bucks less. Why are these people trying to gouge existing customers and not new customers? It ****es me off. It's just enough for me to never use Norton again.

So what antivirus do you use and why?

A mixture actually since amongst other things I don't just run Windows.
AVG Free
Clamwin + ClamAV on Linux
Avast! (mainly on the mail server side but also for the entire machine coupled with Clamwin)
I like Clam because it's portable by design which makes it good for live CDs/USB for fixing systems I can't get access to the OS on immediately.

I have used McAfee for years, never had a problem with it. We used to use Norton as well, I hated the constant pop-ups saying my subscription was expired, when it wasn't! It started the pop-ups 2 weeks after I installed it, it would pop up with a reminder every 2 hours..annoying as hell when I am trying to do my work (which is on the computer!)

I'm assuming you're talking to me? lol, yes Tippy was quite a cool cat.. I just made a return thread here a couple minutes ago, but apparently a mod has to approve it?.. okie. Thanks!

I use Symantec Anti Virus, hubby uses Avast. I'm never worried about this topic, coz my brother will look after every problem that I encounter.

Brandon, I viewed your album and your sites and found out how lovely those kitties are, and how good you are in taking pictures ! I really enjoyed my time, thanks for sharing.
