My new PC came with some sort of MacAfee software (proction center). I also have my own Norton 360 and Norton Systemworks as well as Iolo's System Mechanics.
In the VISTA system, Microsoft seems to have its own protection software installed.
Can they work together?
I must had asked this question before but that was comparing between different brands. I first noticed there was some problem when I tried to install a new Norton AntiVirus to the system with Norton Systemworks Premier. The NSW had an older version of Norton antivirus with it but installing the new AV only gave me 8 months of subscription instead of a year.
Now this time I was trying to install the new Norton 360 to the computer. BeepBeepBeep! The 360 asked me to remove Norton Systemworks Premier first! I also have a newer version of Norton Systemworks but now I really need to think twice before installing that.
Surprising enough the 360 was installed to the new computer (already have MacAfee) with no problem at all.
On iolo's site there is this chart: http://www.iolo.com/sm/7/std/
System Mechanic seems to be the best choice of all. And it's FAR. Link to deal.
But would they work together, that is a question.
