The antivirus from CA associates which is a package spyware and anti virus.
I think there are some compatibility issues. I dont want to argue with them. I just
want to get rid of this and move with some thing else like norton or Mcfee and which
would you suggest.?

I' d go with either AVG or Avast.  Fairly light on system resources.
