I recieved an email from Comcast today saying that my computer sent spam or something of the sort n' it usually means a virus and since I have Comcast cable internet Macafee is free for me to download n' use.
I am using ETrust EZ Antivirus right now, should I take advantage of the Macafee thing too??
Thank You.

I personally would use AVG Free it's my favorite anti-virus and I'm pretty sure you can only have one anti-virus running at one time.

Hey Cheryl.
EZ is a great AV program. Personally you could not run me down and melt and pour MacAfee or Norton on me.
I believe you are better off with EZ, especially if you are not having problems with it. If you want to know if you have a virus broadcasting install a firewall like SyGate or Zone Alarm. If your email program is sending emails your firewall will record it. If your email is being used it very possibly that a spammer is just using it.
Stick with what you have if you are happy so far. IMO.
