    I'm going to repost this because I hate Macafee, Spyware Doctor, etc. etc.. Again, this is an amazing free 4month trial program.

    Get Norton 2011 Beta.. It's amazing!

    pS.. I HATE macs. I had to use them in college for graphic computer design. I'm massmorels, and I am a PC.

    also, consider picking out parts for a custom and having someone assemble it for you. It's not as hard as you may think. I was building them from bare frame, start to finish, in less than 20minutes. Hey, that rhymed.

    I never got those commercials, from either side; mac or windows. The slogan makes no sense. I'm a flesh and bone human, not a pc or a mac. It's kind of degrading of them to sum up a human life as a machine.

    Norton is by far one of the worst antiviruses out there. Not only does it too a terrible job at catching viruses but it's invasive and takes up way too much RAM IMO. Even after a complete uninstall, your registry will still have Norton in it. And I don't just mean, 'history' or 'footprints' of the program. I'm talking about data that Norton installs without the users knowledge. IME symantec, Macafee and all it's chums are just as useless.

    If you're looking for something effective, quiet, and that doesn't use up tons of memory I HIGhLY recommend ESET NOD32 or Kaspersky. Don't waste your time or money on the rest.

    +1 I hate Apple

    Install Linux and put a virtual Windows machine on it for your gaming needs. You're gonna need 2+gig RAM for that setup though...
