Actually, some experts recommend having BOTH, as one will catch some that the other doesn't, and vice versa.


I think good computing practices (like not using Outlook!) and either one will do ya. Norton's update is fully automated, too, but they don't do the email thing. Actuallly, the complaints I've heard centered around not being able to get OFF McAffee's email list. But that was a while ago - perhaps they've corrected that.

Lots of good reading and some very good tools.
