I would really like to see some exchanges dealing with Norton AntiVirus. Gosh! I've been using Norton for literally YEARS. I upgrade the software every couple of years and keep the virus updates current; frequently updating manually every day or so. As NAV has "matured", it has become an ever bigger Pain in the ____ for PCs I manage. The latest issue is the time-out error generated by Outlook and Outlook Express when trying to receive files that have attachments. The error is a time-out (I think) with the code: 0x800CCC0F. Norton's suggestion for this boils down to turning off email scanning. Now, maybe I'm wrong, but I thought email scanning was important!
I'm seriously considering some other antivirus solution and would really like some comments on some of the others. AVG comes to mind, Avast is another. McAfee seems like another bloated overload, from what I've seen. I'm not looking for a free antivirus solution; I don't mind paying for software, and actually prefer it.
This is a similar problem (In my mind at least) to the ZoneAlarm thing. In trying to be everything to everybody ZA 5 became impossible for many to use. Sygate Personal Firewall just does it's job and lets the rest of the world do its thing. I'd like a similar thing with antivirus.
Sorry for the long-winded message. I wanted to lay out the question so that the great minds on this forum to know the frustration and venture some ideas.
thanks a lot for any thoughts!
Happy Holidays everyone!! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
