    Well, I want to know what Antivirus are you using at the moment on your m11x and the Antivirus you consider is the best for the m11x.
    Btw, i will get the McAfee, but i think i will change it for Norton.

    Eww on Mcaffe and Eww on norton. But that's just me, never liked those two companies and never will. I personally use AVG, not the free one but the most comprehensive. Works like a charm haven't gotten any viruses yet and I don't even notice it running. I also used Kaspersky for a while and that was a great anti-virus as well.

    Symantec software is a bloat-ware crap. And Mcaffe some narrow-minded crap.

    Use avira instead. Free antivirus - Avira AntiVir its free, light and easy to use. Never had problem with it :)

    Avira. Used it on my Portege as it's low on memory requirements but still does a good job. So I've just stuck with it.

    Avast! is the best AV I've come across, less bloated than anything else on the market according to many users.

    mcafee antivirus which come with m11x is a big hoax...they are giving u an antivirus which cant even do simple stuff like exclude a certain type of file or folder from scanning...i want a refund on the av...

    now i am using avast..it is free and a million times better then the mcafee antivirus...

    avast all the way. the free version is great but has no firewall. the pro version is well worth the upgrade.
    used norton,mcafee,avg free and avg pro and avast has been the best so far.
