Glad I don't use them as my Anti-Virus... Microsoft Security +Bought Malwareb +3 other smaller programs blocks 99% of stuff on my computer. Might be a bit of overkill but I like to be safe!

I did that, but then decided to just utilize Firefox too which helps a TON now. just get no scripts and ad block and you will block out a lot, whatever slips passed that will be hit by the virus protection.

I noticed a lot of stuff comes through on ads, since websites have little control over it and a lot of big ad networks don't filter it out right.

This, combined with common sense. Best antivirus ever = common sense.

That's the right way . One has to be safe .

If you use Norton, especially the 2006 version, you deserve to get a virus.

Norton is one on the worst Anti Virus programs available anyway, I avoid that crap as much as possible
