    I use Linux and don't use any antivirus software.

    I hope I don't get any viruses.

    I use AVG because I didn't like Norton - IMO Norton, as you probably know, is evil

    I use VirusScan Enterprise version 7, I like it just for the fact it doesn't have any of the crap that the retail versions have, it does just what I need.

    Why on earth do you use two? Should I be using 2?

    I accidentally voted Norton. I actually use McAfee.

    Norton

    I used to refuse to use Norton, and used panda antivirus. Until I got infected with something that formatting 10 times and 5 other antivirus programs wouldn't fix. Then I gave in and installed Norton it got rid of it.

    It probably affected your boot sector because formatting is about the best antivirus I know
