    Here is an paragraph from an article listed at

    TIP 7. Don't Ask for Virus Problems

    Most users have antivirus software installed either at work or home. If you don't, you definitely need to invest, not only in a package of software, but in the subscription to the updates. Office XP is a new product and your antivirus software may not be compatible. All reputable vendors have upgrades to integrate with Office XP. If you are having problems with the latest updates for your antivirus software, contact the software vendor immediately and ask for the update/upgrade that is compatible with Office XP.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    However reviewing many AV products only one lists XP as compatible. Draw your own conclusion upon review. It is possible
    the programs can be upgraded or already cover XP but their websites do not mention that.

    Yes
    Norton
