    i'm having a problem with my NAV. the auto protect will disable itself every second or third time i boot up my comp. and when i go to enable it is tells me to re-install the program. but the next time i boot up. everything loads fine. anyone have any ideas on what it could be?

    i think antivirus programs are a conspiracy. i've never had one (only have used adaware) and have never had a virus (knocks on wood)

    when i did tech support everyone that called in that obviously had a virus was using an updated version of norton or macaffee.

    i'm also drunk tho.

    I work Tech support as well and find that sometimes AV programs are more trouble then they are worth. I was running Norton 2004 and just found it bogged my system down too much. Housecall and PCpitstop.com are two spots where you can do free ones.

    Now Spyware...that's a different story...gotta have something for that
