I have four PCs and on three of them I use Mcafee anti virus provided by my ISP.

On the fourth PC, I use Norton Corporate anti virus. Since I occasionaly work from home my company requires that we have NCAV on our personal PCs. The company logon program runa a check to make sure we have the latest edition NCAV before the logon to the corporate system is allowed.

I am not a big fan of NCAV. Can I load the Mcafee on this PC and have NCAV in de active mode until I need it.

Thanks

Tom

The way you describe it? In a word, Yes. Two AV's real time is not a good thing. However as long as one is deactivated they may both reside. The conflict is when both are active and they see one anothers definitions as virii. hth
