Hi John

In the process of everything else will be setting up a few sacrificial 
machines for testing, the true security posture. This means I have to dig 
out some Win9.x CD's. I have a fresh Win2k Pro Box that I will plug the 
CD's into tomorrow.  I will also install the EZArmor (if it will)..

Over the next week will get as many platforms running as I can. As that can 
be completed will post what I found. That provides information outside 
testing that others may do and provide information on.

For CA, I personally have a low confidence level. The Antivirus I had 
experience with the rewrite for compatibility with Whistler.. You remember 
the little *.eml (etc) files that spread everywhere? It was a week before 
the update caught up with it.. Then, we are talking 2001. My Business 
stance requires Symantec Corporate Edition, my personal preference is pay 
money to Symantec. It is one of the few that "plugs" to Eudora (email).

CA - they have many fine products, however our individual mileage "always" 
varies.. There is no substitute for testing in your own environment...

The Server version is InoculateIT, EZarmor is aimed at "users"
