Good question. As my PCs sit on my small network, which is connected to the Internet via a router, I do protect them as a matter of routine with (in my case) CA's eTrust anti-virus and Zone Alarm. No Spyware scanners. I don't find any problems with Zone Alarm, and I configure the anti-virus not to touch any of the TelliCast related directories. No routine anti-virus scans, either.

By the way, on the main PC (which is a receive-only PC), I run Diskeeper to defrag each of the four partitions once a week, on different days, at different times. This can also cause the odd missing segment, perhaps one a month (rough guess). I can correlate the time and day of the missing segment with the defrag of the disk with the \receiving\ directories.
