Bad algos ftl and aggravation!

Shouldn't adding it to trusted sites make a difference? Every firewall or AV has some type of similar designation

Yes it should. But he said he never looked into that.

I'm real sorry I haven't been on in a long time, please don't hold it against me,
On the A/V discussion, might I suggest looking up some free ones? I've heard a ton about Norton and Macafee I don't even suggest them to my customers anymore, I just don't understand why you should pay to be "Safe" from attackers/malware/spyware/viruses/trojans - you name it.
I'm not well educated in the A/V side of things, this is just what i've heard from numerous sources.

What you say is true about those 2, but the top rated AVs are pay ones, just not THOSE pay ones.

Norton is bloatware and I dont really have a problem with mcafee...

I did. I had McAfee suite for a bit. Came with a desktop I bought, so I figured I'd ride out the trial period. I didn't make it.

I don't know if it is me, but it seems as if there is a gap developing between the corporate and domestic versions of McAfee and Norton?
I really don't rate the home offerings. That said, there are numerous situations where a security suite is the way to go rather than patching together a set of freeware offerings. The latter option isn't really "granny friendly"
If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?

Not sure about McAfee's corporate entries, but that certainly true of Norton/Symantec. I know software co's that use symantec corporate, and they're not inept coders, they write very sophisticated software themselves, so their opinion is an educated one.

I dont know about sophisticated I would call it more bloated IMHO. Other A/V engines do an equal or better job as norton corp. and have a smaller foot print.
