Anti - Virus Trouble

I was recently having trouble with Mcafee Virus Scan Professional, i just found out that Zone Alarm is conflicting in some way or another. Anyway I was advised to use AVG but the free version isnt installing correctly as Windows freezes. Anyway A friend said i could use his copy of Norton Antivirus, would this conflict with Zone Alarm?

Please note that I currently dont have a anti virus program so i need some kind of software ASAP!

THANKS

I think using his copy of NAV would be illegal

I would also recommend NOD32 as your AV - it's much less likely to conflict, and runs much faster tha any other (well known) AV program. click here
