Good-bye Avira AntiVir (Free-AV), hello Norton?

The other day, I woke up to evidence that AntiVir 7.5 had done its annoying update....and it had an extra popup. It was reporting that one of my main spyware tools was now a trojan horse, and it didn't give me much in the way of choices. Ignore was a choice, but it kept popping the dialog back up every few seconds. And, I wasn't going to select any of the other options.

So, I removed AntiVir. Decided that maybe I would go back to a paid version of Symantec Antivirus.

I used run it, but my subscription lapsed...and I was unemployed for an extended spell. And, then later I have 'free' use of the corporate version through work. Though work changed to Trend Micro....and Trend messed up all kinds of stuff, like removing my webcam software...by classifying it as spyware. And, it didn't give me any options on what to do with it...removing it was the only thing it would allow me to do, and did so automatically.

So, I had set out trying different free-AntiVirus packages.

Now, I'm running a trial version of Symantec.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
