the anti-virus programme is very popular now. i would try to get an entire package from them, registry mechanic, anti-virus, anti-spyware, and firewall, at a special price. the arrangement would be good for them too.

Having tried PC Tools products, I would advise you not to use them. Their programs have been known to produce a lot of false positives. Stick with the free, well known, well trusted programs.

I have used PC Tools for quite some time and I have not any any issues with their products. However, I feel each individual user needs to asses the effectivenes for themselves.
