SBC Yahoo DSL Anti-Virus Software

SBC (now AT&T) Yahoo DSL includes free anti-virus software. It is a package from Computer Associates.

I have never had a virus or spyware problem, but I am paranoid and yet too cheap to spend money on anti-virus software, so I installed the free software.

It seems to work okay (How would I know? It's never found anything...), but it runs a whole bunch of programs in the background:

VetMsg.exe
iSafe.exe
CAVTray.exe
CAVRid.exe
yop.exe
ycommon.exe

The DSL modem includes a firewall, so I figure I am relatively safe.
