Free Security Software

Can any PC Advisor reader help?

I am sure there was a recent feature about free security software in PC Advisor. I have the back issues but can't find the feature. Can anyone tell me which issue it was in?

Have to disagree with you on AVG, FruitBat. I had it for a while and didn't trust it. Am not familiar with the others.

I would try NOD32 as an AV click here

If you look in these forums you'll find it gets good reviews and it also covers spyware and adware although I did also get Spywareblaster. It's saved me a few times.

If you do try NOD32 just remember that the trial version isn't the full blown product. And I would imagine that holds true for 'any' trial versions of 'any' product.

The latest variants of the free anti virus programs listed:- avast! 4, AVG 7 & Antivir 6 are all regularly submitted to Virus Bulletin for testing and all get good pass rates in the 100% tests. They are trustworthy.
