I use the free version but I am not sure you can get same level of protection and all the latest upgrades and updates you can with this version.

the microsoft anti virus pack which is now free, is perfectly good, and seems to pick up more stuff than others cannot find...

not knocking the deal though, it is cheap... but they have to be now as m/s offers it for free..

For anyone who has this, is it any good? And is it significantly better than the free AVG software?

AVG has repeatedly let me down. That's all I'm saying. Cost me a fortune to sort out. Everything it missed was picked up by Kaspersky immediately. That's all I'm saying. I wouldn't recommend it, free or otherwise.

ah i think we're talk crossed purposes, i'm actually talking about using Microsoft's free anti-virus engine as opposed to any payed for service of free AVG, it works great and has found stuff that symantec etc hasn't been able to pick up

Go ahead and use the free version of AVG for everyday browsing. But..........

Everyone should also download and install the free versions of....

MalwareBytes

http://www.malwarebytes.org/

and Spybot Search and Destroy

http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html

You would be amazed at what gets past Kapersky, Symantec and Mcafee.

MalwareBytes had caught stuff that Spybot missed and vis a versa. Things that the big three missed completely.

Just do a full system scan with MalwareBytes and Spybot once a week.

Microsoft Security Essentials, very highly rated and tested well. It's free as long as you have genuine Windows.

Double post.

The paid-for AVG has a few extra tools, as well as a much more granular scanner scheduler (updates are the same for all versions)

HOWEVER, what is beginning to put me off AVG is ironically its popularity...... a lot of the virus' I clean up off peoples systems seem to knock out AVG starting on the next reboot (as its a good bet its the AV on the system).

If I ever buy AV, its going to be NOD32 by a country mile. :)
#17
if you have a valid copy of windows but a slightly less valid copy of office will the ms av still work? do you have to install their genuine advantage tool or whatever its called?

I haven't tried the Microsoft suite yet but after using AVG I switched to Avast and have been much more impressed by it. I'd recommend free Avast over a paid for AVG but then again I haven't used the paid AVG.

Also agree with what everyone else is saying. You don't/shouldn't need to pay for AV anymore. As long as you have a spyware and decent free AV cover you'll be fine.

Has anyone heard of SuperAntiSpyware? A friend of mine works at PC World and uses it customers pc's to find and remove viruses, spyware etc. He recommends it highly.

Microsoft Security Essentials all the way.

I used to get the McAfee one but it would slow my PC down like crazy.

As I am with Virgin I downloaded there's for free, after my McAfee expired. Just wondered if it is any good?
#23
AVG is hideously bloated these days - full of crapware like an automatically installed Firefox toolbar which redirects your searches, and a link scanner which slows down your internet browsing by loading and scanning every link on a page whether you click it or not.

AVG is dead. Go for Avast or Microsoft.

The fact that your friend works at PC World should be enough to tell you that he knows nothing about computers - their staff never do.

Superb article that I'd recommend reading if you're not sure.....

Stop Paying for Windows Security; Microsoft's Security Tools Are Good Enough
When it comes to keeping your Windows PC secure, all of the scare tactics and overblown virus stories out there make it hard to feel safe online. The fact of the matter is that you don't need to pay for Windows security.

From time to time we like to go on long, opinionated rants about subjects that bug us. This is one of those times. So let's have a frank and honest discussion about Windows security, and leave the scare tactics and FUD for money-grubbing corporate marketers.

Microsoft Security Essentials is a Great Antivirus Application
The release of Microsoft Security Essentials has changed the landscape of antivirus software. We've finally got a completely free application that protects against viruses, spyware, and other malware—without killing system performance like some of the "suites" tend to do. In my personal experience, it barely slows down the machine and rarely affects my work—and during a deliberate attempt to download some viruses (for testing purposes), it immediately found and blocked them from doing anything.

You don't have to take my word for it, however. Not only did AV-Test.org find that it detects 98% of their enormous malware database, but AV-Comparatives (a widely known anti-malware testing group) found that MSE was one of only three products that did well at both finding and removing malware, including the leftovers. It was also the only free product to grab their "Advanced+" rating—the top honor for an anti-malware solution.

The more tech-oriented readers will probably note that MSE does not do any fancy heuristics to detect viruses that aren't in the database already, which is a feature offered by some paid solutions. In my opinion, this feature is usually unnecessary and a massive system drag if combined with a healthy dose of not installing questionable nonsense.

Stop Whining About "Outbound" Firewalls
Every time I read an article about the built-in Windows Firewall, I see comments complaining that they use Zone Alarm or some other software because they handle "Outbound" connections. Let's put it on the table—the Windows Firewall has plenty of capability for handling outbound connections if you really need that level of paranoia. In fact, if you just look through your start menu you'll find a link for Windows Firewall with Advanced Security. You can head into there and pretty much configure any setting that you can possibly imagine, getting right down to the port level if you want.

The fact of the matter, however, is that outbound firewalls on a desktop PC are Completely Pointless. If the malware has made its way onto your computer, you have already lost the war. Your PC now belongs to whoever is running the botnet, and your outbound firewall isn't going to stop it—after all, the malware can simply add a rule to the firewall to allow access. It's better to focus on keeping malware off your PC in the first place.

Let's not forget that most of us are using a router with a firewall built right into it, and as long as you aren't using easily-cracked WEP encryption, you should be perfectly safe behind your firewall.

User Account Control (UAC) is Not a Security Tool
The single most irritating feature introduced in Windows Vista was those annoying UAC prompts, asking you for permission to do nearly anything on your computer—and the fact is, even if it makes you feel more secure, it's a false sense of security. Malware researchers at SophosLabs found that 8 of 10 malware samples can actually bypass UAC on a system with the default Windows 7 settings.

The fact of the matter is that unless you've pushed the UAC slider all the way to the top, it's not meant to be a security feature. The original intent was to change the way Windows works so that you can more easily run software as a standard user account, instead of running as administrator all the time. So there you have it—if you aren't going to run as a standard user or turn the slider all the way to the top, you may as well disable UAC.

Keep Windows Updated
When it comes to protecting yourself, it's laughable how many people install multiple antivirus applications but don't keep their system updated with the latest operating system patches. Last April, the Conficker worm was exploiting and spreading on millions of PCs through a critical security hole in Windows—one that had been patched the previous October.

If everybody would simply keep their systems patched, we wouldn't have to worry so much about these problems. If the constant rebooting action of Windows Update has you frustrated, you can always temporarily delay Windows Update's forced reboot, or just make it not restart your PC automatically—but you should always have Windows Update running at all times.

Keep Applications Like Acrobat and Flash Updated, or Uninstall Them
Even though we're complaining about people not keeping Windows updated, the fact of the matter is that the most likely cause of drive-by malware infection these days is through your browser plugins. Adobe Flash is notoriously full of security holes, and the latest attacks have been using vulnerabilities in Adobe Acrobat to infect your PC without installing a thing—just go to the wrong site that redirects you in a hidden frame to a PDF file containing the exploit, and your system can be exploited.

Keeping your applications updated is critically important to protecting your security. Your firewall won't protect you, and an antivirus software is unlikely to help if you're using an old, vulnerable version of Flash in your browser—what you need is a piece of software that scans your PC and makes sure that you are using the latest, patched versions. We've got you covered with the five best software update tools for any OS, but my personal recommendation for Windows is for Secunia PSI.


Stop Downloading Questionable Files
There's a little-known fact that I don't usually tell anybody, but I'm going to share with you today: I haven't used real-time antivirus software on my PC in 10 years, and I've never been infected with a virus. About once a year, I run through an online virus scanner to make sure that my claim still holds true, and it's never happened.

How have I managed that, while being a geek and testing software all the time? There's a couple of simple rules that will protect you:

Use an online scanner like VirusTotal to scan questionable files before installing them.
Don't download and install those questionable files in the first place.
Use some common sense. That pre-release copy of the latest video game you got from a torrent? Yeah, it probably has a virus in it.
#27
I am advocate of MSE, recent independent tests rated it highest of the free AV programmes, back up with MalwareBytes antimalware (free) and sensible surfing!

This is a good deal for a paid for product, however, if you are going to pay for a product Norton these days is very good as is Kaspersky, personally I would still go FREE AV! ;-)

Heat added for the deal.

Ha, that was my first thought too. We shouldn't generalise though...


Well to be honest hes a Techie there and iv learn't alot from him in-terms of building a pc from scratch along with other pc related troubleshooting and he knows his stuff when it comes to pc's (compared to other Techie's iv seen in and outside of PC World). So from what 'flusteredpie' said 'we shouldn't generalise', so i will trust his opinions and recommendations when it comes down to pc softwares and sofar he hasn't let me down.

I get my full retail version of Kaspersky 3-user for free because i do online banking with Barclays.

I came back from working in Africa a few months ago. I had 14 assorted viruses/trojans on my personal netbook - I made the choice not to take the office laptop (good call I say).

I installed Superantispyware and haven't had any bother since. Updates are regular and automatic and if a problem is found, the program fixes it effortlessly in a couple of clicks. I can't say much more than that - it works for me.

I like Avast too. I use it on my laptop & desktop.

Crucially, I have also installed it on my 19 year old son's laptop. Despite his tireless trawling of porn sites, a virus has yet to get past Avast in the last 2.5 years...

I installed malwarebytes anti-malware, spybot search & destroy and superantispyware. Ran a full system scan with all 3, malwarebytes and superantispyware found harmful things, but spybot didnt find anything apart from the usual tracking cookies :?

Looks like i'll be using the 2 that did find harmful things and spybot is going to be taken off my pc :whistling:

no internet security software is 100%. so to say nothing has gotten past is just your opinion.

if your AV software is missing viruses or has a low detection rate like AVG free does, then how do you know something hasnt gotten past it.
same with false positives.

My top 3 are Eset, Kaspersky and bizarrely over the last year, Symantec 2009/10 products.
Anyone slagging off Norton is behind the times and stuck in the past with their fingers in their over-opinionated ears.

I spent years removing it from PCs in my job as a tech at Mega PCs in South Shields.
the Norton internet security 2009/10 has been rebuilt from the ground up and doesn a really good job, its very low resource and very easy to use.

too many PC techs, Computer geeks and people's 'Tech friends' (yes I know its a PC world product name!!) have their heads up their own backsides as far as software goes.
Norton had a terrible rep, but things change and if you're prepared to be surprised, give it a shot.

anything is better than AVG free. AVG free users are just asking for a virus these days (must be at least one thread a week in misc where people have got viruses that AVG happily let loose)

AVG is a bloated bit of tosh!, if you want a free one get MS security essentials

I think you guys out there should try SuperAntiSpyware along with Malwarebytes. I installed and did a full scan on my PC yesterday with them 2 software's and they found a few Trojans in my system folders and one of my personal folders.

I scanned my PC with Spybot first and it didn't pickup the Trojans, but the other 2 did. So i will be making sure them 2 software's are on my PC till something else comes along that betters them.

What trojans did it find? Some less reputable AV software make up trojans and viruses, pretending they have found some to fool you into believing they are better than other antiviruses.
