Does MS Anti-Virus scan while downloading?

Hi,
I was wondering if the anti-virus program in LiveOne Care scans files as
they are being downloaded with the built-in download manager in IE 7?

Not exactly as it is being downloaded but as the file is written to the Browser cache (aka;
TIF).

However, the AV software in OneCare has one of the worst catch rates in the anti virus
industry. Therefore it is suggested to get anti virus from a well known anti virus vendor
such as Kaspersky or NOD32.

Thanks for the info Dave. I was just looking at the Kapersky suite and just
had one additional question. I have been a very happy McAfee user for many
years using their suite products. (except for anti-spam). The problem was, it
got to where performance was being degraded beyond acceptability so I decided
to abandon the suite. OneCare's performance has been fine. Can you tell m if
Kapersky's suite might be faster than McAfee?

| Dave,
| After further reading with PC World and C/Net's review's, Kapersky is the
| one I'm going to go with. Thanks again.

YW :-)

Sorry for interrrupting .
Kaspersky is definitely ligher than McAfee , but NOD32 is lighter than both
. I suggest you also try it before considering any products . Don't forget to
uninstall all antiviruses before trying the new one , you should keep only
one AV .

Kaspersky (web-site) has got such pretty green colours, (probably 'cause
it's owned or run by a Russian woman I think), so on that factor alone !!!!!
(r.o.f.l. I just gotta laugh at me !) I downloaded and installed the
free Kaspersky internet security version and it was COMPLETLEY unhappy in my
machine / XP Home ed.. ...had to uninstall it.

Now I do keep my main PC luvly, it gets LOTS of TLC ...so I was disappointed
when I tried KAspersky two or three months ago !
