OK computer geeks out there. Should I get this for daughters new netbook - or will she be safe enough if we download AVG free or malwarebytes or something which costs nowt???

Get the freebie... I live Avast and it runs fine on my netbook.

Why would you want to pay for something that you can get for free? Cold from me.

All I can say is I have a "computer geek" friend who has a BSC in Computer science. He used to reccomend both AVG and AVAST but says they're are not as good these days and says he couldn't now reccomend a free virus download.

Hope this helps:thumbsup:

Just found these reviews of this software online:

Pros: I haven't gotten a virus since I installed it.

Cons: It slows down the boot on my desktop (c2dE6600, WinXPpro 32bit, 2GB, Raptor 150) by more than 30 seconds. It absolutely DESTROYS performance on my new Netbook -boot takes <30 seconds without CA installed, over three minutes with.

Summary: On netbook, Windows explorer either crashes or lags for several minutes (really, what's the difference?) if real-time protection is on. Turning it off makes browsing network files at least possible, but that's no protection at all. This thing came free with Time Warner Cable Road Runner -which is awesome service- but I'll take Comodo for the same price over this bloated sack of protoplasm any day. I had major networking problems when I set it up and trouble shot the thing for several days before I found out that CA has to be lowered to a pretty silly level of insecurity in order to have simple file sharing work at all. It also hurts performance enough on my desktop when browsing files on or off the network that I am just getting rid of it in favor of some (other) free AV/firewall solution.

And another -------------------------------------------

Pros: An easy installation

Cons: I had to reinstall windows after using this product, It caused my computer to fail to start, I had to reinstall my OS.

Summary: I wouldn't use this product because it killed my computer causing me to have no option but to reinstall windows.

LOL - HUKD makes me laugh sometimes - people always post the negative reviews and rarely post the positive ones. Is your glass half full or half empty?:whistling:

No offence to you or your friend OP, but have you heard of the "opinions are like ********s" saying? I think that applies in this situation to all opinions on AV software. A BSC in Computer Science doesn't necessarily make him qualified on AV software.

All I will show here is the detection rates:

Product==========malware on demand==========adware / spyware on demand
AntiVir (Avira)======99.8%====================99.0%
Avast! (Alwil)=======99.3%====================98.3%
AVG +=========== 95.8%===================87.0%
CA-AV (VET)=====65.5%================== 68.0%

This is really all you need and it's all free. Don't listen to those computer geeks. I am using these for years now and never had a problem or slow-down of computer.

Oops. Should have mentioned the firewall as well. You can use Sygate for free
http://download.cnet.com/Sygate-Personal-Firewall/3000-2092_4-10049526.html

It's quite old but still does a brilliant job and many people still use it. You can also use Zonealarm, but I found this slows down my computer.

Please remember: Whatever you use, there is no such thing as 100% safe!

It makes me laugh too mate... don't get so defensive, the software is bad, take it on the chin and move on.

There are 22 reviews on Cnet and overall it has 1 star out of 5. Two of those gave it 5 stars, one gave it 4 and the rest gave it one or less.... I'm hardly going to post them all.

This is how it should be. Only the negative are importent and act as a warning to ppl, so they can investigate. In the end everybody has to make up their own mind anyway.

I can't be bothered to go extensively into why you right, but still miles off with that post, it doesn't justify that much comment, but since when has Sygate Firewall been free?

I used to use it myself, and it was very good, but it is an absolute pain in the backside to configure, (as reviews on the link you give stress!) and of course now is totally unsupported. (No idea if it will run/perform effectively with Windows 7 either, after all it is very old)

Undoubtedly you CAN get free, effective anti-virus, firewall, anti-spyware, anti- trojan and anti-keylogger software, but be prepared to tweak and mess about with it to get it working effectively, and to update - you need to remember to keep it all well up to date; also expect to have a LOT of stuff running in the background slowing your machine down to get the same level of cover that a good well rated internet security package will provide. If security software is not easy to "comply with" and teach, and interact with, you can guarantee too that users will turn it off to enable them to get into what ever site or feature that doesn't like them blocking certain functions, kids even more so!

With a Netbook, performance is so borderline to start with, even the least invasive security software impacts on performance, so it matters more than ever what is running behind the scenes :-(
