I've been using house call for several months now on a few different machines. Awhile back a had a problem that I felt was virus related but norton, mcafee and house call said " no virus "
After talking with our comp tech he suggested another virus protection program that he has had fair luck with finding just about everything because it auto updates and of course you're wondering the same as I was. How much is the going to cost me.
It is also free and after downloading it, the machine and one other that was network indeed had a virus. I will try to find a download link and post it.

I started using AVK 1 1/2 years ago because viruses were getty past Norton and it is so difficult to re-install norton after it has already been installed. My Norton subscription reverted to a "trial" version after only 6 months. Spent way too much time trying to get their tech support to fix the problem.

AVK has been great. It updates the virus definitions every hour. Unlike Nortons daily or not so daily updates. It uses (2) virus detection engines. Does not have all the pop-ups and my computer has NOT been sucessfully infected since I installed:thumbup: :thumbup:
