    Try Clamwin.

    It's opensource, free, and has worked perfectly for me for the last year or so.

    Trend Micro is one of the best products i have found in my experience. Personal and Enterprise.

    EDIT: Symantec software is one of the worst programs you can install. Not only does it slow you system down to a crawl, but it doesn't catch as nearly as many of viruses as other software. I have a few clients that use Bullguard and speak very highly of it http://www.bullguard.com/ as a personal application.

    Also, Symantec products don't always uninstall themselves.
    I was hooking up my bud's internet last week and saw he had Norton Personal firewall. So i set up the windows firewall then attepmted to uninstall it and it kept giving me errors. So i went to safe mode and the uninstaller said "Cannot uninstall this program in Safe Mode".

    Symantec products get worse and worse with every version. Avoid.

    Speaking of all the Symantec hate, is there a better program than Ghost?

    I hate using that piece of shit.

    as much as I hate Norton/Symantec, Ghost is a good product. Probably because they bought it from someone else and had the sense to not touch it! :mamoru:

    yes, it is VERY bad. I've seen it miss many viruses that AVG quickly picked up.

    it may be ghost, but just to add another experience in there, I constantly use ghost via the network to re-image about 90 machines... Works great, albeit slow when I have more than a couple images going.

    I don't know what your deal is, but at my company we run Norton Corporate Server and have zero virus issues...

    ???

    Either way, we are not getting any viruses in our system. As I see it, Norton is doing it's job.

    And what do you recommend for managed enterprise level virus protection?

    None of that free crap, thanks...

    McAffee is pretty good..
    I used norton for several years and was sure to be protected against neraly everything.

    However, the moment I installed some other Av software there were found more than five infected files on my system.. norton would have never fixed them..
    Another point ist that norton slows your system down so much..
