I have about 45-50 PCs/Notebooks that I need to have Anti-Virus/Anti-Malware protection for. We are currently using Norton Internet Security 2010 (10-user packs). I am trying to figure out whether I should stay with Norton or switch to something else, but I'm not sure what else to consider (she says with chagrin). The computers are all running Windows XP (Pro and Home) SP3. We are fairly lenient with Internet access. I would think I need a firewall, real-time anti-virus (and anti-malware?) protection, schedulable system scanning among other things. But I'm not sure what those other things are. Could anyone give me some suggestions are to what I should look for/look at? I am considering Trend Micro, Kaspersky, McAfee, Norton, and MS Security Essentials or AVG Free version.

Since your question is already being addressed, please continue in that thread. Do not start new threads or duplicate topics as this causes confusion and makes it more difficult to get the help you need to resolve your issues. Further, it necessitates staff spending time with housecleaning to remove those duplicate postings...time which could have been provided to others needing assistance.

Thanks for your cooperation.
