Alright. I have zero budget to work with as my employer still lives in the 80's believing that antivirus programs are only around for people that go to porn sites.
Anyway, she has an A64 notebook that she totes around with Verizon Wireless Internet service that she uses for her frequent trips to DC and St Louis, among other places.
She still uses her old dialup ISP's (AT&T Worldnet) email through it. Not a problem. I have all that working for her - and Worldnet is pretty screwy to set up...
She uses our PC-Cillin 2002 antivirus. This is a problem. A BIG problem. Why? PC-Cillin will automatically change your incoming POP3 mail server address to "localhost" in Outlook and Outlook Express, and will not let you use a custom server address no matter how often you manually enter it in. So, I've had to turn off the email scanner in her PC-Cillin.
Okay, I consider that a big risk.
With zero budget for these things, what would you guys recommend? I know of two free antivirus programs - Avast and AVG, but have been burned by one of them (Avast) at least twice. Do you guys think she's best off using AVG so that her email is getting SOME sort of scan or should we stick with PC-Cillin 2002 and hope it's able to deal with anything she may download in her email?
My belief is that PC-Cillin 2002 is the better system scanner, but with no email protection, well, I don't know...
