    •  I am using Defender Pro. (5+ / 0-)

      I do not trust either Norton or McAfee.  Defender is the latest iteration of Black Ice, which is a lot more muscular than either of the two popular ones.

          Well I`m glad to see our pirate "talk" disseminated into mainstream dialogue.

      •  What do you think of AVG Free? (3+ / 0-)

        Charles insists we use that.

        Why are war casualty counts "American troops" and "others" but never "human beings"?

          My trust in freeware is pretty low.  I am not really familiar with AVG so I am not the best person to ask.

      •  My McAfee lights up like a Christmas (1+ / 0-)

        tree quite frequently, though it didn't with this link.

        That said, I'm not much of a fan of McAfee, but it comes preloaded on all Dells and I have read that it's nearly impossible to get rid of it. Plus, there seems to be lots of "baggage" software included with computers when you buy them all put together (as opposed to self-built ones, I mean). You certainly can't request it be left off when you buy one from Dell.

        I'm always interested in better security software, but am not very computer literate. Do you know if installing another program, such as Defender Pro, bogs everything down because there is more than one security program running?
