I posted this because it is possibly overlooked by people with Nero I have Nero6

  Hornblower 11:31 30 Mar 2004 does it stack up against McAfee VirusScan 6.0?

I'm about to buy Nero 6. If there's an effective virus scanner included that's updated (very) regularly what's the point in having 2 virus checkers?

I'm very happy with McAfee, but willing to try anything that may do a better job, after all the version of McAfee I have is quite old now, but at least gets updated automatically. I also live by the 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it rule' - but I can always go back to McAfee if necessary.

Anyone else tried it yet?

The virus scanner on retail versions of Nero checks any data files you intend to burn are not infected with a virus.

It's a double check and one, I would have thought, that would be a useful backup to your normal AV program.

Hi Hornblower,the Nero virus checker does what Stuartli says so best to keep McAfee

Oh, I get it! Thanks to both of you.
