anti virus for XP

  Shinda 13:33 29 Jan 2003

I downloaded AVG for my 'puter running on XP. Had a prob this morning as my mouse refused to work, tried 2 different mice ,still no good.The only thing i installed before this prob was AVG, So I uninstalled it & now everything works fine. My question is, is there a antivirus prog for XP and if so where can I download it from? Also run Mailwasher & ZoneAlarm with out any probs.
Many thanks in advance..

i had similar but different probblem, keyboard was very patchy after installing anti vvirus. i uninstalled zone alarm, installed antivirus and then reinstalled zone alarm everything was ok.
i dont know if itll work for you but it worked for me.

Check here for what passed the Virus Bulletins 100% detection rate test for XP, at the last test point.

Personally I use click here - which has never given me problems in mine or clients sytems-

The last 3 days, I have just upgraded from W2000 to XPpro, I have re-installed AVG without any problems.

However, DieSse does have a very valid point!

click here for Avast4, I'm using it on my new XP pc because of the better pass rate at Virus bulletin. So far no problems.

I've got XP - no problems at all with AVG. Luck of the draw, I guess.
