try PC Tools anti-virus click here
I use it and find it very user friendly.

someone will explain about avast to you i'm sure of that.

Avast! is very easy to configure and updates itself automatically, providing written and spoken notice that it has done so.

The configuration is undertaken via the settings button (top left on the panel).

If you do install Avast! and I strongly recommend it, ensure when you register that the box for Personal Use only is ticked; if not, you won't get an e-mail providing the registration number (the initial registration on installation lasts 60 days).

You don't need to tick any boxes from the Common tab (except perhaps for Simple Skins if you wish).

Up date chacks can be configured for every hour upwards as required.

Indeed it is - but it's not an AV program

I think it would be better if you gave us a list of those aspects of Avast you can't understand.

We'll be better able to answer you then.
