Should we be using any different configuration as far as virus protection is concerned?

Question

I recently read your comparison of virus protection products dated 12/10/2001. This was quite informative. Could you update the comparison?

Also, we are currently running web-based McAfee VirusScan on each of our workstations, but not the server. The ISDN router has a NAT firewall. The server is running NT 4.0 and the workstation PC's are running Windows 98, ME, and XP OS. Should we be using any different configuration as far as virus protection is concerned?

The virus protection configuration is just fine We do recommend Norton AntiVirus over McAfee, but if you are using a web-based virus scanning system, there should be no problems.
