    Mike says the only one that was ever any good was InnoculateIT which is now
    called eZ AntiVirus, others are saying to use eTrust, which has a firewall
    as well.

    Which to use?

    There are two main packages geared for home use:

    - EZ Anti-virus (anti virus only) - cheaper overall

    - EZ Armor (Anti virus & firewall) - Slight more expensive.

    http://www.my-etrust.com/

    If you don't need the firewall then go with EZ Anti virus 2005 version. If
    you want the firewall then go for EZ Armor, the firewall last I used the
    suite was contracted by Zone Alarm. They just but a different logo on it.

    EZ is under eTrust, which is owned by Computer Associates. eTrust is just
    the home user/small business line of products.

    Cheers,

    Try the 'free' one year trial offer from MicroSoft. It includes the
    anti-virus and firewall.
    You can find it on the MS site or on the CD if you order the free MS
    Critical Update CD (free shipping included).

    I have used VET antivirus for 6 years or more, and have found it to be
    reliable and stable, not causing any problems on either Win98 or WinXP.

    VET Antivirus, an Australian company, was brought out by Computer
    Associates, and, unless things have changed recently, EZ Antivirus and
    InnoculateIT are , under the hood, VET antivirus. The last time I looked
    at InnoculateIT, (on son's Windows ME machine, but this was some time
    ago), even the user interface looked the same as VET!

    Have a look here if interested. http://www.vet.com.au/

    Etrust trial period is very short, then they want money after at most
    several days. I deleted them.

    Reid,

    That's strange Etrust demo's are 30-days which I would consider the standard
    length. You must have had a corrupt installation or had a previous product
    installed that caused issues. I'm sorry you've had bad experience with them.
