Yes, right click on the logo in lower right corner of screen, and a menu pops up. One option is "updates". In fact, when I checked my email a few minutes ago, got a message that one of them incoming had a virus, and they cleaned and deleted it. I am scanning all my files right now, just to make sure. I am really impressed with it.


: Bob,
: I don't know which version, but it came loaded on the pc with winME. I uninstalled it, bought Norton's 2001. This was about 17/18 months ago. Which version do you have? Does it have the option to manually check for updates? Thanks.
: Trisha

: : Don't know what version you have. I get automatic notices whenever there is an update available. Pops up at least once a week. Also had it alert me to a bad email about 6 months ago, and I just clicked on the "delete" option and went on. Also go a complete update to the software about a week ago (at no extra charge). Costs me $39.95 a year.
: : Had a bad experience with Norton years ago, and have avoided them ever since. Never tried anything else.

: : Bob

: : : : I like McAfee.

: : : Bob,
: : : Just how do you get it to check email? I was never able to get it to do so. Checking the corporate thing didn't work either. And there were never any updates. Has it improved in the last 18 months?

: : : : : : : And I could go on. Thanks, Trisha, for reminding us that we ought to be careful of where we step in this Brave New World of cyberspace.

: : : : : : After spending bookoo bucks getting this out of the pc hospital last year, from 3 trojans and 3-4 others that overwrote the anti-virus software, I take extreme caution. If posting a reminder saves someone heartache and bucks, I'm all for it.
