Hello Aido:

In the April 2009 VB100 test summary, all PC Tools products had failed
using XP Pro.

IMHO you paid too much for it.

Their anti-virus coverage is so poor that it never makes it onto the
radar screen by independent AV testers.  Forget about piecemealing your
own PC Tools + other security programs solution since PC Tools products
are often incompatible with other security programs or will actually
damage them.  PC Tools may falsely trigger on the other program's files,
quarantine them (WITHOUT prompting you), and [assuming you can recover]
will say it has restored the files from quarantine when you unquarantine
them but it doesn't resulting in having to uninstall and reinstall the
other security program.

Thanks for your repsonces 1PW & Vanguard.
I'll stick with Kaspersky for now, I still have about 2 mths left on the
licience, Thought it can be a pain with some websites, Not allowing me
access even though I've made rules allowing me in.
I used to use AVG free, Which I still due on another machine running XPpro.
I got rid of it because I'd heard some rumors about it's performance &
that the next version wouldn't be free. Should I just put that on the
Kasperky machine instead when the Kaspersky licience runs out?

As for paying to much 1PW, It came with PC User magazine, SO the cost
was minimal when you factore in all the other stuff on the cover DVD &
the mag itself, So I'm not worried about paying to much for it. ;)

I was being facetious.  You still paid too much. :-)

More than a few of us hope you threw the magazine away already.  Now
I'm not being facetious.

If you aren't adverse to paying for your AV protection, Avira's
AntiVir Premium and Eset's NOD32 usually make it to the top of many
favorites list.
