Is there an antivirus program which will allow the automatic updates, particularly of virus definitions, to run whilst I am logged on to a "limited" account on XP?
I run XP with a limited account for everyday use by the family and a password protected administrator account which I reserve for installing software, etc. (Keeps the children from installing games!) I have tried both Norton AV and McCafee VirusScan but find that the automatic update facility doesn't work properly unless I log on as an administrator, hence my AV definitions are not always right up to date. I need to subscribe for another year of updates, so this may be a good time for a change if anyone can recommend something that will do what I need.
It occured to me you may also want a firewall? Avast have a remarkabley low cost system designed to work with the kerio firewall click here It's free for home use and passes all the same tests Zone Alarm does.
I used ZoneAlarm on another PC but this one?? for some reason just wont accept it.
