Anti virus software

Can anyone suggest an anti virus software I could use for 3 computers. Norton and MacFee are everywhere but no-one rates them very highly on this site - any ideas?

Also my son has a desk top computer that is so slow it is almost going backwards. Is there an add-on we can purchase to speed it up or is that not possible. The computer is only a few months old and wasn't very expensive (he bought it from Asda with his paper round money).
Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

AVG is brilliant and free.

I would also go with AVG (big factor being it's FREE!)

Although your pc is new it may need more memory - do you know if this is possible?

Run a defrag on your hard drive(s)

If you want to you could delete your internet browsing history - I regularly use CC Cleaner to tidy up my pc.

Kapersky and Nod32 are supposed to be very good commercial ones, but the free Avast!/Antivir/AVG are well thought of.

Nothing a few months old should be slow, so either it's broken/has a problem or it wasn't fit for purpose in the first place. Do you know the specifications of it?

If you want free , then use AVG8 , but I think the best paid one is Kaspersky . You can buy a 2 or 3 user licence . They have offers every now and then from there website ,I bought a 3 user licence for £14.99.
Really pays to have a good anti-virus program nowadays ,so many bad sites and dodgy e-mails .Kaspersky picks up those e-mails as soon as they hit your mail-box.

AVG 8 is the best for your needs! if your computer is running slow first download CC cleaner and run this its free then run defraggler also go to crucial and let it do an automatic scan it will tell you how much RAM you have I would suggest the minimum you need for XP is 1GIG but 512 would proably be ok for just internet surfing.
