What do you think of PDA antivirus programs? Are they worth it? I've found some free programs on the Web, but I'm wondering if it's worth the investment in terms of RAM.
Given what viruses can do to wreak havoc on your PDA, I think an investment in antivirus software is a wise investment. On the other hand, the virus and malicious code problem certainly isn't as prolific on PDAs as is it on PCs. I would recommend installing antivirus software on your PDA if it makes good sense for you. You should consider it if you do a lot with e-mail on your PDA. Physical security of your PDA is key as well. If you cannot afford the memory tradeout, you should at least ensure that any PC you use to synchronize your PDA with has current antivirus software installed on it and always make sure you have a recent backup of your PDA data.
