    I would recommend learning to use a computer and browse the web without infecting yourself with malware.

    Knowing how to browse safely and securely can bring about a near 100% effectiveness against getting malware.

    But you missed a firewall!

    Plus a reference would be nice.

    How is AVG dead? 7.5 is still going strong, 8 is apparently fine if you turn off the site crawling option.

    Clamwin...

    Been using it for a while now and have never had an issue.

    It's free and is not a resource hog, it does not scan in the background either.

    If you know your way with computers you don't need an AV that constatntly runs in the background.

    I just scan every 2 months or so, so far haven't had any issues.

    I have since i first became familiar with IE6 on a s478 when i played around with registry Mechanic and searched every where for the activation code then i got ad ware, Trojans and malware years since and i haven't had this problem until one day i just showed my son this ad on a phised site and boom?:upset:


    My favorite computer shop i buy from advised this program but i never heard or read much about it.

    why isn't Norton on the list.
    reason i got this is cause Center link use this with there servers.
    The city of council use this with there servers.

    I would rather 360 but didn't have that much doe on me and was prepared as there is only six months left of 2008.

    AVG 7.5 whilst unsupported didn't delete the spy ware i had on my computer.
    Didn't try AVG 8 as i didn't know they had it for free users? Though i used it after freshly installing this new installation of xp. Now i bought Norton INTERNET security 2008.

    Nod 32 was recommended but they didn't reply toy email straight up to them?

    thanks for help keep ocau rollen?:leet:

    yikes. I installed Avira and it picked up a couple of things that AVG let through.. not false positives too :Paranoid: At least they were archives that I hadn't used.

    Kaspersky or AVG? Kaspersky gets a lot of thumbs up on these sorts of forums and also in review lists. I don't know a great deal about AVG other than their recent notoriety.

    K...when I said AVG was dead I meant you now have to pay for it.......where as Ive been provided with a FREE copy of norton 360 from symantec to help me brainwash people into buying it.

    I see a lot of people saying NOD32...problem is that its always scanning for me...and since I have a raptor as my main drive..thats a fucking loud scan.

    would AVG have less of a updated supported daily data base for spy ware, Trojans, malware and virus than the paid version.
    After my system ruined cause AVG wouldn't detect the fake XP Anti virus program stopping my browsing telling me to buy it. I will 98% never use it again. When i get every program iv downloaded backed up on 32gb usb drive and buy a new (Nehalem/Bloomfield) Mobo and cpu.
    Iam gonna create the virus that destroyed my system and see which Anti virus all in one program detects the most and see.
    Then i will reformat for fresh installation with clean back up on my 32gb usb drive.
    Just to see which is really the best sociology anti virus program to use next year paid for.
    These freeware AV programs ant 100% reliable.
    Beware what you browse and open up in your email + use your credit card on line. Trust me? :mad::cool::Paranoid::p:thumbup::):sick:

    Add another vote for Avast! Recently had to fix two computers (one running paid corporate Norton AV, one running free AVG) both turned out to have several active viruses/trojans that neither existing AV would detect, but Avast found and removed them no prob.

    I can't believe it! I bought a 10-license copy of Kaspersky from their website last week for our work, and then a few days later they release a new version?!?

    I fell ripped! WHat are the chances of getting a free upgrade?

    EDIT: It looks from their website that I can downlaod and install 2009 over the top of 7?

    Oh and +1 vote for Kaspersky...its updated several times a day...the Russians are the ones who come up with half the viruses, so they should be good at detecting them too! :lol:

    It's not dead, You don't have to pay for AVG Free.

    When you have to pay for AVG Free it will no longer be called, AVG Free. End of Story.

    If it's a business transaction with a few licenses then I think if they are worth their salt they will help you out.

    Only one way to find out though.
