Whats wrong with Windows firewall? Unless you need advanced packet filtering functions, it should easilly suffice.

free version of AVG does the job ;)

found avg bit heavy on an older machine but avast was fine

I use the Free version and would not pay £22 for this, I don't feel that the 2011 version is as good as the one it replaced TBH Am considering switching to MS essentials

avg free and other free antivirus programs alone won't stop malware getting on your machine, you need a decent firewall that will warn you before it gets on there (which windows firewall won't do). And unless you boot into safe mode it can't remove the more sophisticated ones that hijack the rundll file.

I see so many machines come in for virus removal and all they have are the free antivirus programs (or sometimes nothing at all!)

Personally I'd recommend comodo internet security as it's a complete package and it's free

In my experience, nothing is 100% foolproof, but will be down to the users preference. I like AVG as you can tweak it relatively well for your requirements/sensitivity. Others like a fullly obstructive program that swallows boot/prime/IO speeds with huge delay. Most of the decent free software gives you the tools for the job one way or another, and the user needs to do thier bit sometimes as well. Given the stupid things a lot of people install onto their computer, full of toolbars, registry changes, adware, malware etc etc... not much can help them sometimes.

I've recently given up on AVG and switched to Microsoft Security Essentials. It pains me to recommend a MS product, but I'm really impressed so far, and the speed improvement is really noticeable.

I think this is a great deal for the price - I prefer Norton myself, we use it at work and its much better now than it used to be, but everyone has their own opinions. I have AVG Internet Security 2011 on my laptop and one of my desktops and think its a great piece of software :)

Free stuff is usually limited or doesn't have the support and regular updates of commercial software.

There are loads of free versions of various AV software with commercial upgrades ..... You decide if you need it or not !
#17
avg is terrible, especially the 2011 edition.....

though for terrible bloatware this is much better priced then normal
#18
not quite sure why people still use software firewalls when most modern routers have build in hardware firewalls. perhaps somebody can shed light?
#19
HOT for me. . As you say with firewall, 4 user and 2 years cover. Great deal, many thanks

I have used AVG Free Edition for years but I don't like the 2011 edition at all; its slow. I uninstalled it a couple of weeks ago. The uninstall didn't work until I stopped AVG running at start-up. I have now replaced AVG with the free version of Avast and so far, I like Avast much better than the 2011 edition of AVG.

Hardware routers do not stop outgoing traffic sent by programs on people's computers.

If you buy Norton 2009 or 2010 products then you can upgrade to 2011 for free on install. I paid 19.5 quid for 3 user Norton Internet Security Suite 2010 PLUS Norton Utilities at PC World instead of £60 next door at Vomit (Sorry typo - Comet) - I reckon they are to be had even cheaper

you think it does a good job until you do a scan with a proper AV solution oO

AVG keeps me busy clearing viruses of other people's PCs so I aint complaining lol

You made me spill my tea :D

AVG performance has degraded significantly over the last two years or more. I've replaced it with MS Security Essentials on most of my personal windows machines. The latter feels much less intrusive day-to-day.

reading this made me think of something the best security software is no good if you don't know how to use my dad's wife tends to just click allow on every pop up i like avg as i find it easier for my mum to use but everyone likes different ones i absolutely hate norton my auntie who is 65 has just got her first netbook but wanted to know why it was so slow loading it was taking a good few mins to load up not many i know but as soon as i removed norton for netbooks less than 60 secs to start up.
i use free version of malware bytes too just to check for stuff that might have got pass avg but if anyone is thinking of changing they security software i'd recommend using the free version of revo uninstaller to remove it as sometimes they leave so much behind it conflicts with the new one
ooh waffled on a bit there sorry :)
