Symantec and McAfee do have the better products out their IMHO. If
the cost of the standard box-product is little too much what you could
do is try out the 'not so new' ASaP anit-virus product line from
McAfee. The entire product is based on the online model (delivery -
Installation - Update/Upgrades) Due to the incremental updates
methodology that they follow the running costs are also kept to a
Shop around - The McAfee VirusScan ASaP subscriptions are being
retailed online throughout the world, I'm quite sure you could say
subscribe at an Australian site and pay AUS $ instead of US $ or
Indian $ - whatever's cheapest you know.
Well I hope those links are useful.
