McAfee Virus Scanner 8
I've just got McAfee Virus Scanner 8, thinking it would be wise to update from my old v4. However I'm annoyed with the fact that it seems to heavily use ActiveX. :-(
Being the paranoid person I am, I've restricted IE's Internet Zones to high, but this is causing a big problem for McAfee VS8.
I'm wondering if there is any way round this problem... to still use high security zones for Internet use but allow MacAfee VS8 to run normally?

Old and Cranky
Sorry to sound like such a bummer on this but the only way I know of is to use a different AV. Anybodys besides McAfee...

Well, all I can say is... DOH!
Know of any recommendable ones besides Norton?

coffee why not just make mcafee a trusted site so then you can keep your settings but allow mcafee to go thru

AVG sounds good thanks FastGame :-)
I've been trying to find out what exactly to add as the trusted site for McAfee but everything I try doesn't seem to work. :-(
