    Default Anti-virus progam question

    I currently have Mcaffe virus scan. Is Kaspersky virus scan better? I have been thinking of switching to norto anti-virus but had heard about Kaspersky and now I am undecided. Thanks

    Default incompatibilities

    I had recently downloaded an update from Mcafee and I was told to remove spybot because of an incompatibility issue. So is Kaspersky compatible with spybot.

    I just ran the Kaspersky online scanner and it had said I have 5 viruses. While Mcafee virus scan detects nothing. What should I do in regards to the viruses found by Kaspersky/

    Regarding McAfee, a forum search shows:

    I am not aware of any such problem with Kaspersky.

    Your PM gave a little more information, one of the reasons it is best to post in the forum topic.
