    Default OT: Another software question

    OK again. I currently run McAfee Virus Scan and Firewall (recently paid for both of them).

    When I bought my TurboTax sotware I was given Norton Antivirus 2004. Can I run 2 anti-virus prgrms at same time? When I attempted to load the Norton I was prompted to delete the McAfee software, which I didn't do. It appears I can ignore this prompt and continue but should I? Would they conflict with each other? I am certain that no one program can catch all potential problems so IMO having a 2nd might be a good idea. Am I * in my thinking?

    Gen info

    we use Win98 (had XP didn't like it, got rid of it) with Mozilla browzer on an archaic dial-up system.


    Thoughts?

    impossible to use both, A. the software does not allow it (either one wants to delete the other) and since they are using the same ports to scan on they would be conflicting.
