I like Mcafee and have run it for a long time, Norton is also very popular. Both are commercial products. However there are many others

Yeah but norton anti virus isnt a firewall or anything, nor is most other antivirus programs. Antivirus programs on their own are ment to stop viruses, not hakers. If you want to stop hackers, you need a firewall, such as zone alarm.

I use norton antivirus 2002, only because for some reason pc cillin 2000 wont install on my machine but am soon going to get pc cillin 2002.
Pc cillin lets you automatically delete the file/email or whatever if a virus is found, notron wont do that.
Get pc cillin from www.antivirus.com

Does anyone know if those virus scanner websites that scan your PC while you are on the internet are any good? Standalone downloadable virus scanners are better? thanx
