    Warning: Windows XP SP3 and McAfee don't mix

    If you’re a business user running Windows XP Service Pack (SP) in conjunction with McAfee antivirus software, make sure you read my colleague Ed Bott’s blog post before you download McAfee’s latest AV definitions.

    I used to work at AOL and sold McAfee. PLEASE don't use it! It's a resource hogger, memory stealer, user frustrater... my 2 cents.
