    1. How is antivir, compared to fprot?

    2. Is their any av under 30 bucks with strong detection rates, good heuristics?

    I think I got a istoolbar is my computer and mcafee enterprise isn't picking it up.

    I don't know what "bucks" means, but i think it is dollars. :D

    VBA32 $23.60
    F-prot $29
    Bitdefender Standart $29.95
    Dr.Web $33.90
    Safe'n'Sec with AV $35 (it uses bitdefender engine)(they have %15 discount if you buy before 31 august. http://www.star-force.com/computer_security/bonus/ )

    These are all good products, but my choice is VBA32 for good price/performance ratio.

    NOD's around $40 the first year but from there on out it's more like $27 a year.

    Have you checked McAfee's web site to be sure McAfee does not detect isttoolbar? Try the trial version of NOD which is free for a limited time before you buy.

    Also I believe McAfee must be configured to detect adware such as this -- make sure your McAfee is configured properly in its settings. {I'm a NAV user so can't help you with this but surely there are some McAfee users here who can}. HTH .. ;)

    You can also try Avast! Pro for like 60 days I thin it is too and see if you like it. I don't believe it has heuristics but it found alot of malicious stuff on web site as I surfed and some of the others did not when I tested them on my system. Anyhow I think the trial idea is a good one to see how they work for your needs.

    Dr Web is roughly $32 for a 2 year licence if you take advantage of their migration offer.
