    I use AVG free too. It seems to be good. However most of my net browsing is done on my mac.
    Not around too often!

    NOD32:

    http://www.nod32uk.com/home/home.htm

    You can download a 30 day trial version from the site.

    It's low on system resources and will not slow down your PC like Norton. Virus database gets updated quite a few times during the day.

    I love AVG Free. It catches sinister stuff without a problem and keeps itself up to date.

    I'll have to switch to McAfee when I go to uni though
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    No problem with Norton, I just don't like spending un-needed money.

    I use AVG on my 32 bit windows and I have it integrated with MSN, email, MIRC and so on. Found a few viruses as I leave MSN on auto-receive.

    I always had a prob with AVG getting rid of nasties on the PC's here @ work. Detection is fine tho. I've only ever had one viral infection & that was an archaic word virus, my own stupidity there F-Prot & Pest Patrol work for me.

    I've got Norton, never let a single virus/trojan through.

    I've heard good things about panda anti virus

    McAfee here - but that's becasue I get it free through work . McAfee 8.0i Enterprise (latest version we have) is very good tho (port blocking, spam detection, spyware, firewall etc.)
