    Hey CNetters,
    I just wanted to remind everyone to keep the antivirus up to date, and keep up with the MS Patches. I'm speaking from experience, Gibe@mm crashed my whole PC. I had to format C: and reload windows xp. Needless to say, I got Norton 2003 running now with the latest definitions. Not sure how it happened, but Also, added a McAfee firewall. Luckily, I partitioned my drive, so I didn;t loose much.

    I tend to like the Norton AV because it scans incoming and outgoing email. Can prevent you from spreading an email worm, when you don't know you are infected.
