Anti-Virus Recommendation

  fitshase 11:33 12 Jun 2004

I am currently running PC-Cillin2000 on WinXP but I'm becoming a bit unsure about it. I am looking to change my anti-virus software.

Anyone have any suggestions/comments on alternative software. I don't mind paying for the software but equally I am open to comments on the free downloadable anti-virus programs.

i find that AVG is a very good anti-virus program, McAfee anti-virus is also very good. ive tried Norton but couldnt really get on with it. All can be downloaded from any share site, emule, bearshare, Kazaa etc. Another very good site to visit is

click here

it offers all sorts of free programs, anti-virus, firewalls, anti spyware. you will find AVG anti-virus on that site. Spybot search & destroy is also available there, which i highly recommend. hope this helps.

I have been more than happy with AVG free edition and it's never let me down yet (touch wood) though I check for updates every time I go online. HTH TR

how about trying AVG anti-virus it is free. just do a search and you will get lots of hits for it. I use Norton anti-virus which you have to pay for, there is also Mcafee . there are others and some of the guys will probably argue the finer points of other anti-virus.

AVG, Spybot S/D, Spywareblaster the three Amego's of the PC world for me
