I am looking for a good antivirus. My parents have the Shield 2005 and I have access to it but I don't know how good the program is. Anyone know of anything better to run? I have Nortons Internet Security 2005 now (free til January). Not liking Nortons too much because it will not let one of my games to play. I get an error message everytime, even after I told Nortons to allow the program to do whatever it wants. Anyway if anyone could give me some ideas about what is a good program to use will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I would say AVG is the best, if you have multiple users on at once, it has scanning problems, though. Otherwise it is defveloped professionaly and picked up 3 entire viruses that Norton ignored.
