Re: Getting e-mails from ISP's web mailbox to OE

AVG doesn't do anything about Spam, it is just an anti-virus program that works just fine.

You would go into the Control Panel | Add/Remove Programs, and remove McAfee VirusScan. The firewall should be separate and that you can leave.

AVG is an excellent A/V program, but you'll have to look elsewhere for a Spam program. (If you don't post your real address on unsecure websites, and especially newsgroups, you wouldn't get Spam.

I have had my current address for a year and get no Spam and have no rules. Notice my munged address.

Do I disable to whole suite, or just one part and if so, which one. Also, if
I disable McAfee, will I have the same level of protection with AVG that I do
now. This problem only seems to have come up lately. If I do disable "M"
since I am using its Firewall Plus protection, should I then revert back to
the Windows installed firewall protection. I guess I am just a little
apprehensive about disabling McAfee. Just what is AVG, and what exactly does
it do. Thanks for all the help.

because my computer came with a trial period. It kept changing the settings.
I dumped McAfee and use AVG (free).

Norton (and McAfee) products are not Outlook Express friendly, and I don't
know of any OE-MVP that would recommend using them. Let's see what someone
else has to offer.

If you would like to try AVG, download it here:

When prompted, choose Custom Installation and *uncheck* e-mail scanning when
you see the option.

You can Keep McAfee for now, just disable it. You have nothing to lose since
this program is free.
