johnnyrocker, is right there are plenty of free AV's out there. Try Avast click here Having said that my personal choice is NOD32 which tou have to pay for but is much cheaper than what you are considering, and is the tops as far as I am concerened.click here
I'm also a free anti virus convert. I use AVG free and its kept me virus free for maybe 4 years now. So it gets my vote. If I was going to pay for an anti virus and like the others I see little point as the free ones are fine, but if you want to pay for one then I think the 2 best ones out there are NOD32 which has already been mentioned or Kaspersky which has been doing very well in all the tests I have seen over the past year or so. The free ones do the job though.
Can someone please clarify that the one I saw on The Gadget Show on Monday 28th April, is a new addition to the range and can it be used not just for laptops, but for Stand-alone PC's also? If it can free my processor from running Norton at start-up and when 'Norton' decides to run (I disabled that part, but it keeps doing it anyway) a quick scan, then I am going to get one, or two, maybe my PC will be a bit quicker at start-up.
