I also take it AVG is a Freebie virus scanner and doesn't end like 30 days from install.

AVG is free and very good, I prefer it to Norton. You can download it from click here

download free edt. from here click here totally free to use as long as you wish, not just download.

the pro edt. click here is also free to download but you can only use it for 30days.

i use the free edt. myself and thats all you really need if a home user, keep it up to date and run a scan regularly.

do anyone of you use AVG with other antivirus programs together? or just use this one?

  Dan the Confused 03:36 25 Oct 2004

Only ever use one anti-virus product. There's no point running more, it just uses resources and can lead to software conflicts.

Use it in conjunction with a firewall and, to be extra safe, spyware protection programs such as SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard.

Run your AV prog along with Ad-aware SE and Spybot S&D at least once a week and you should be safe from most things.

Remember to keep all these programs up-to-date with the latest definitions and updates.

Just as importantly, stay up-to-date with all Microsoft critical updates too.

Think that's everything :P

I agree with "Dan the Confused", but I also keep shortcuts on my desktop, for other online scanners such as Panda, Microworld & Avast. I like the safety of additional checks when I think that I have a problem. AVG is very good and has not let me down( ever ). Lots better than Noton.

The free version of AVG (there's also a beta version out for the next generation of the product) does all that most people require, providing it is regularly updated.

Cheers & hope bug Free.

  Giggle n' Bits 14:38 25 Oct 2004

take it this is correct method to get AVG by having to get a confirmation from G.soft for the download and v7 is correct version
