    <smartass> The best way to prevent virus infection is not to run Micro$soft products... But, if you have to run a virus on your computer, run the "anti-virus" software that is written by the virus err operating system writer. Micro$oft security essentials. After all they want to protect their infection from other programs that want to infect your machine. </smartass>

    Was running Norton 360 until it did a double backup of my hard drive and filled it up. Wiped out nortan and installed AVG.

    Motivation alone is not enough. If you have an idiot and you motivate him, now you have a motivated idiot.

    ESET NOD32 here too, nice small memory footprint and low resources needed. Not like some of those bloatware (Norton) AV programs. Haven't run a firewall beyond the Windows one and the router one for ages.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.
