VIRUS

By quintar51 ·
Hey guys, it looks like I have a virus. My files sizes, for different programs, have been changing dramatically over the past two days. An example, when I go into add/remove programs, ICQ would show up as 135 MB. I know it's not that big. If I exit add/remove and go back into it, this time ICQ will show up as a different number.

This cries out to me as a virus symptom. I do have PC-CILLIN which updates itself every week, and I did run it, but it didn't find anything.

My question is what is the 'best' Virus scanner out there? In the past I've used norton, pc-cillin, mcafee, panda. Anyone know of one that better than most others?

Thanks in advance,

PC-CILLIN sucks, it got the lowest rating by Consumer Reports. I suggest McAfee or Norton. I use McAfee, never have a problem, and my network is constantly attacked by viruses.

norton might be the best anti virus around. though, that's if you like to click on the "ok" every there's an unsuspected activities, which mostly happens everytime your online. i would prefer mcfee, since it monitors all your activities w/o having to question you. it monitors, quaranteen, and protects the pc. hope that answers your question.
