bump is just a word added to take your thread back to the top of the board if a member doesn't know the answer or to add it to the 'my postings'. I sometimes use it or ^, in fact you can pretty much use anything. TR
I have Norton AV and ZoneAlarm pro running under XP home with Spybot. No noted problems or conflicts. However I may change from Norton to AVG when my subscription expires - I have AVG at the office (own business) and it seems good - all the better for being free!
