Windows Live OneCare

Anyone have any opinions on this? I'm looking for a new antivirus program (currently using NAV 2004) and was considering this since it's selling for $15 at CC. The firewall is a possible bonus, since Sygate has been giving me problems lately.

I probably wouldn't bother with it.

How often do you encounter viruses?

Once. Twice if you count d/l a program that had a virus on it, which NAV didn't even find (the antivirus from Computer Associates found that). Just wondering if the program is any good. The couple of reviews I've read make it seem okay, but wanted to know if anyone had any first hand experiences with it. I've read that the firewall with OneCare is limited, so I'll have to continue looking on that front.

Im assuming you are telling him that his 2004 is sufficient and not to change.. which is fine

but when i first read your message.. i read it as, "you dont see viruses often, no need to run any AV".. and that made me laugh

I know AV use is critical in the office network, but for the home user? Meh.

A firewall is definitely important though.
