Maybe something good can come from this buy. Perhaps Intel could hardcode virus protections or Improve McAfee with their money. I understand that most people never think about Anti-virus until it's too late and then make the geeks clean up the aftermath.

If you had Intel's money what Anti-Virus company would you buy?

I think McAfee was the best choice although i really liked Zone Alarms Anti-virus that came with the security suite.
