Please - whats the best way of covering pishing, email scanning and spam if I remove Norton and use AVG 8
Thanks for looking.

Sorry for having to ask again but does that include the free version?

It looks like the free version does not cover spam.

AVG does not cover

Rootkit infection
Scanning Downloads
Instant Messaging eg MSN Live, Messenger, Yahoo etc
Virus infected web pages

What a bargain!

I am sure you can use it on MSN.You could use it with AVG 7 version.What a bargain.You are right its free.I think you will find AVG Security Center covers all those things.

Think it looks much less hassle to cough up another £38 or whatever for Norton again, at least it is straight forward, never had problems with the 360 version except when using System Restore - but have cracked that one.

Better off with the freebies.But if you are going for Norton again shop around.You should get it for about £20.
