My AVG license expires in 14 days and i was just wondering what virus software you guys use? I'm sure theirs something better than AVG that's also free, mind you maybe i should pay for it instead to get the good ones, some help on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Just looking for some recommendations realy

As a Linux user it's not really a major concern for me Big Grin

The Windoze bunch seem to be saying that AVG is getting a bit rubbish these days - slow and bloated. Avast seems to be the one to go for now.

i can vouch for AVAST..been using it for a few months now..much much better than anything else available in the market right now..even the free version works pretty good..try the free version for a month before u actually spend money buying anything

I don't believe in using anti-virus programs. Honestly, I think they're a BIG waste of money. In the past few years, I've used Norton Internet Security and I've seriously gotten more viruses WITH protection than without. I currently don't use anything and I've yet to get any spyware, viruses, trojans, etc.

That's because Norton Internet Security is a big pile of doggie do. Really. It's rubbish. Well-marketed rubbish, but still rubbish... slows your machine down and fails to catch far too much stuff. As soon as Norton sold out to Symantec they went down the tubes.

You probably do have lots of viruses and trojans now, but you're not noticing it because you have nothing that might make you aware of them... and they probably aren't slowing your machine down as much as Norton did.

Do install Avast and give your machine a scan with it...

Also install Spybot S&D - catches spyware and other nasties that AV programs miss because it's not the sort of thing they're looking for. Use that link - there are other things which are nasties themselves but deliberately have very similar names to catch you out - that link is to the real one.

Do you mean Kaspersky? I'd recommend you switch to Avast, I've heard too many "Kaspersky didn't catch so-and-so" comments...

For trojans you want Spybot S&D as well as an AV program.
