norton is good no problems at all.

i downloaded mine from morpheus free offcourse.

i downloaded also norton internet security and system works but those two started giving me problems so i uninstalled them again.

just stick with the antivirus program and you'll be fine

k I just picked up a copy of antivirus 2002


how can you tell its working? I have auto-protect enabled, but you know like in virusscan if you check the status you could see the files its scanning as your using your computer?


Is there a way to show a list that norton has scanned or something?

from what i know u don't see the files that it's scanning right now. or if it is scanning any files. the only thing u can see is if u do a full scan which takes on my computer 30-60 minutes. but u have to start that yourself. everything else is invisible i think.

Norton is where it's at, especially if it's free
For a firewall, I just use my router though.
