    Are there any user in here using Symantec Antivirus Corporate? I just read that version 10 is coming out this month and will include AntiSpyware build in to the AV.
    ( Which is great because some are finally taking spyware more seriously, i hope it won't be like Mcafee 's one though........ )

    Just wanted to ask if the current Symantec Antivirus Corporate version is any good at all?

    ( My college won't be upgrading to it all till next semester.. and i am out of college so i can't hold of it......... ) ><

    Well, see http://www.av-comparatives.org

    Norton has made a BIG jump in detection this month. IBK from the website says that Symantec Corporate Edition 9.0 has same detection as NAV 2005.

    SAV CE version 9 already has this ability... (screenshot is from SAV CE 9.0.3.1000). I doubt version 10 will be much better than the already good version 9. ;)

    SAV 9.0.0.3.1000 is a good av, I have found in the past that some Trojans hide from it fairly easily and that was what mainly made me drop it for McAfee 8.0i since we have licenses for both of them. I am hoping to see 10 soon, and I am looking foreward to testing it out.

    I'm running SAV CE 9.0.2.1000, where in the heck is that Uncheck threat categories to exclude from scan screen?

    Ahhh, how does McAfee do against "Undetectable" JPEG ? Download his test from this link "The test file is here"

    I tried Symantec Corporate a couple times, and it's ok... If you can get it free and you've to pay for any other solution pick it...
    I'm curious about version 10. Wondering how good the spyware detection is ;) The biggest downside of this product is that it only gets one update a week :S

    Symantec has a "Schedule Updates" setting.
