    Yeah, I was the problem

    A DAT file issued by McAffee identified hundreds of normal executables as dangerous and deleted them...

    This wasn't on my home system, I'm not stupid enough to use it at home...this was at work, on all the domain machines, which auto-update and auto-scan, per company regulations...

    We had the whole thing fixed in a few hours, but it is funny when your AV software prevents anyone from running Office applications, although I suppose you could make an argument that it would be better that way from a security standpoint...

    Do you even work in the IT industry? If you do you definitely should remember this event...but you're right...this was in no way a failing on McAffee's part...

    Bill Gates?!? Can I be your friend???

    Why don't you get off McAffee's dick for two seconds? It's a software program, not your girlfriend...you don't need to defend its honor...

    Although fanboyism is fascinating...it's like being a terrorist, just for geeks...so, in other words, unless you wrote the program, chill out...

    We have a winner! AVG is all I use...free, reliable, updated more frequently than ANY commercial antivirus software...

    I especially like when I download it and the build date is the same as the current date...

    I use it on Windows because I get it free with Comcast. It seems to work ok but I don't use it much since I rarely use Windows any more. You could also get a Mac. Or at least use Linux. And Kiwi WTF is up with that dog ****ing a pokemon in your sig?

    It's a shame AVG isn't more well known...number of problems I've had with it = 0.

    Number of problems I've had with the "big guys" = lost count (now granted, I'm not very bright, so I can't count all that high)...



    Norton is probably the worst when it comes to infesting every nook and cranny of your system and being a real PITA to remove...

    PSHT! I wish I could get a mac! Those things are awesome. I especially love how the new ones come with a built in web-cam. I don't know why. The band teacher at my school has two of them in the band room.... And they say you don't make much off of teaching. Wait... No wonder my school sucks!

    It sounds like I'm horny for Link...
