I work as a developer for a major manufacturer. My area of expertise is in Oracle and Java, however I tend to dabble in a lot of other areas.

Thanks for the suggestion, however, the company policy requires us to take the laptops with us at close of business, because we work in cubes. We've thrown around the idea of getting desktops, which I believe someone else mentioned.

The are doing a lunch time scan, but they insist on doing a full scan on Mondays which take on the order of 4 hours, roughly. I'm a java developer, so we have lots of jar files, that it tries to scan each file inside of.

@3dinfluence - We are willing to listen to any OS switch, I'm just looking for possible ideas to alleviate the problem. @Ernie We are currently on a 2 or 3 year lease cycle with hardware and the cycle end is fast approaching.
