anti-virus software hassle

I'm currently using PC-cillin anti-virus software. I'm currently having massive hassles renewing my membership. I'm exasperated. Should I switch? What anti-virus software do you use?

I'm using Norton Anti-Virus 2005. It works wonders! This NetBus Trojan virus has been trying to invade my computer but my virus protection knocks it out..hehe. Hope that helps!

Yes. When it comes to anti-virus software, I wouldn't use anything besides the "big" names like Norton/Symantec or McAfee. I prefer Norton/Symantec. McAfee does some things that REALLY annoy me and we typically instruct students to just uninstall it and install the Symantec the college provides under our license agreement. We use Norton/Symantec on all of our computers on-campus.

Remember, an anti-virus program won't protect your computer from viruses, it just removes them. The most important thing is keeping your Windows OS up-to-date.

We switched to Trend Micro at work and I love it. Doesnt suck up all my resources and it's really stable.

I've used Norton/Symantec for years with no problems.
