Is there a preferred Anti-Virus software application for Windows XP? I recently purchased a Toshiba P15-S420 laptop (haven't even opened the box) and wanted to install an anti-vitus package. The laptop is a Pentium 4 with HT technology. It has a 3.0Ghx processor with 512 RAM and 80GB hard disk. It came with the trial version of Norton so I went ahead and got the most recent version of Norton (2004) which I have not opened yet. I have been reading horrible experiences about both McAfee as well as Norton from users and want to take all the necessary precautions to ensure that I do not get plagued with those problems with a new machine.

Any comments/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Sonuj2
