I have legal, either purchased or bundled copies of 3 different antivirus software packages... Norton Systemworks 2003 (seems useless, scans take forever, doesn't notice viruses the other 2 notice), VCOM's System Suite, and Trend Micro's PCcillin. If you were me (XP pro w/SP2), which one(s) would you run and why?

I would go with Trend Micro's PCcillin. More personal preferecne than anything. Keep them up to date but only have 1 active antivirus scanner on your system.

Good answer Siggyx. The best AV is the one that you will keep uptodate, both with virus signature files and with the AV engine. That being said the Norton one is two years old, so that would be my first to junk. Go with which ever one of the others has a update licence :)
