    When I used it personally, It was ok. It didn't really catch much of the trojans I threw at it, and mainly covers strictly viruses. Coupling it with Spyware Doctor is a better option.

    Otherwise you're better off with Avast, AVG and Antivir.

    I am wondering why Symantec's acquisition of the company didn't improve this product to the top-tier......
