    Maddawaz,
    There is a big and growing number of security savy users who swear by AVAST AV. I can share this with you. At Rejzor suggestion I went to security_ops link and used AVAST External Control to clean up uninstalled Norton AV 2004, it seemed to do the job. I have looked through BigC advice links and also recall some of those chats too. Looks like you have had experience with PC Cillian I have often wonder how good that is, I almost got it until BigC pointed me to Command AV and it seemed to suit my needs better, but I add quickly that was just my situation. I needed to be light on resources for that machine. Good Luck hope we helped. ;)
