Online Security

While out today putting in applications and doing a little grocery shopping, I spent my "spare" money for the week on "Norton AntiVirus 2004". I already had the version that came with my computer, which I renewed my subscription to the "virus definitions" around this time last year after the 6 month trial ran out, but, since I didn't have an actual CD with the program, and the notice came up last night for another year subscription renewal, I decided instead of renewing online, just to buy a physical CD with the program, which will also be good for a year of free updates,and good if I need to re-install at some point.
Kind of glad I did, the new version has some features the one that came with the computer didn't have. This version is supposed to alert you if a spyware or keystroke logging program surfaces, and has worm and script blocking. It also scans three instant messengers for incoming viruses, Yahoo, AOL, and MSN. Already got it running, after registering and activating it. I think this is the first time I've ever had to type in an activation code for Norton AV, normally in the past I just "registered" it online. Guess they are copying after
One last thing, I checked the Symantec site to see what the actual list price for the product was, and it was $49.99. I bought it at Wal-Mart for $39.33, guess I got a bargin!
