Favorite Internet Protection

Considering almost all Internet security companies have dropped support for PPC Macs, what is everybody using to protect their PPC Macs?

I'm currently using Intego's Internet Security Suite X5 which is terrific except they dropped all the updates for it last year.

 I will warn against Norton Internet Security Suite 4 for Mac because not only has it dropped virus definition updates, it will also leave you completely unprotected and will tell you so in order to get you to upgrade. Intego's Internet Security Suite X5 will still protect your Mac. It just won't accept any new virus definition updates.

Lastly, I tried Avast Anti-Virus, but almost couldn't remove it when it didn't suit my needs. I had to search file by file to remove it.

    I've been using Mac OS X since 2003 and never installed any of the various security suites or virus scanners.
