    I was referring to an earlier comment I made ...I think on this thread,
    ....where I mentioned that a few months ago I "trialled" Kaspersky Internet
    Security suite, on several PC's, and it was unhappy in all of them !!

    I apologize for not responding to the kind replies. I crashed OE6, and just
    got it back up and running. I can't wait to read what has been posted!

    Wow! The first message that actually attempts to answer my question.

    I don't think I'll go out and buy Kaspersky 7.0 since I have a brand new,
    uninstalled copy of 6.0. I had been leaning toward K6.0 based on other
    things I heard. Norton SystemWorks has done right by me, but they want $40
    for another year's license. K6.0 costs me nothing to install (I got it
    early this year for $0 thanks to a Staples rebate).

    But this Anti-Hacker thing has got me a bit worried :)

    I'm a novice in this domain - but I suspect like most things - the best depends on what week it is, the size of your
    grandmother's left Wellington boot and the current position of my cat's tail.

    I know that's not helpful, but I thought I'd lighten us all up a little. I just got my first virus since I got my first
    PC in 1984, aren't I lucky.

    Yes, definitely NOD32, although Kaspersky is good also. I would never
    recommend anything Norton or McAfee.
    I base my opinion on personal use of all these products.

    Almost a couple of years ago, my brother in Bournemouths' PC got his first
    virus after many years of not getting one. He had been using ebay searching
    for a laptop, and visited a computer "vendor's" ebay shop, ...and his PC
    contracted malware from there. I can't remember the name of it now but,
    his a/v+anti-spyware program, (after it's real-time scanner had obviously
    failed to spot the malware), detected it but, couldn't deal with it properly
    in Windows Normal mode. I had to travel to Bournemouth and deal with it.
    I kept a note of the virus name but, do you think I can find it now - I
    cannot !!
