    I recently learned of problems with Avast Anti-Virus. I have never installed or used Avast, but I understand it is considered a good product. I think Avast is a Norwegian product. A late-night radio show on WGN Chicago discussed this during a computer-help segment.

    My employer uses F-Secure. I have been pleased with this product until recently. I don't totally understand what has gone wrong, but it is causing fits for everyone on the LAN. I was told that a virus update causes a new scan to start every 5 minutes. This brings my computer to a halt, and the network activity is huge. I have not found any news items about this. I believe Finland is home to F-Secure.

    Crazy stuff! Perhaps the virus producers are winning.
