New mesh / what anti virus.

  charlton200 16:41 19 Sep 2004

I am getting my new mesh computer next week.

Could anyone tell me what anti virus to put on it,so that I can be protected straight away.
I had Norton on my old system but had a lot of trouble with it, so I was hoping someone could suggest another suitable one.

Thank you.

AVG updates are pretty regular. I used to have problems downloading the updates but these "issues" seem to have been fixed now.

So too avast; it updates itself and announces when an update has been done.

I use Norton security suite firewall & antivirus spam etc from about £25 with 1 year of updates works fine on my new Mesh - you may be able to order it as part of your mesh package give em a ring & check the price

A few probs with SP2 - have a read and make sure SP2 on your machine before despatch

I use AVG, and It's very good. It caught a JavaScript virus just the other day. Quite impressed!
