I have a computer that HAD Norton Antivirus on it. I have no idea which version, but it had to be within the past 2ish years.

And yes, I have not had a working copy of any antivirus for at least a year.

So. I just purchased pc-cillin at Best Buy. They said its just as good and would be just fine. But I was told I have to make sure that every speck of NAV was removed. They told me to download something called RNAV from the symantec web site, but there is nothing there called RNAV to downlaod.

so.

I THINK i have gotten all the NAV files out. I did a search of semantec, Norton etc, and think I have removed everything.

So.

1. Is there anything else I should do to make sure all specks of NAV are gone?
2. Does it matter and can I just put on PC-cillin?
3. Should i beat the boy over the head who sold me PC-cillin and go back and buy the NEW NAV?

Thanks,
Gail

I use AVG free and it works great. Also do an on line scan once a week at http://www.pandasoftware.com/products/activescan Good for detecting virus and trojans. Will remove virus but not trojan they want you to buy the full version for that.
