Kaspersky works well for me
You're better off protecting your computer with a wooden spoon. Cheaper too.

personally I did not get on with AVG or it did not get on with my machine (used to be a favorite when I had XP) - I now use Comodo free as it has a great firewall where you can just block every thing when you want (I use win7 and it works v well)

I moved onto comodo too.

Do have a Kaspersky internet security that I got from HUKD, from around June this year, posted at £1.99 and there was a 5 device deal for under four quid, and you get it free if you are a Barclays customer.

Am I the only one missing a trick here? I can get eset, or F secure for around £21 per year normal price. How is AVG worth £70?

It is not worth it.

If you must buy this Google avg and privacy first :(
Kaspersky was on here last week for as low as £1.99 Total security 2016 for 5 appliances. I am running it now. Much superior to free AV. Now that was a deal.
I use the free Microsoft AV. I also use the free Zone Alarm firewall to stop unwanted outgoings
Hard to believe people still pay for antivirus, windows defenders is more than IP to the job these days and Avast has good detection rates.
had my only ever breach of security using this crap, never again. Avast has proved far more secure.

Awful antivirus programme!

Windows 7
Microsoft Security Essentials (External Download)

Windows 8/8.1
Microsoft Windows Defender (built-in OS feature).
You say AVG is an awful antivirus and then proceed to mention something that in terms of virus detection is even worse. MSSE/Defender is a "baseline" antivirus only and should not be solely relied on as a full antivirus solution, Microsoft themselves have said that...

This free offer has nothing to do with SharewareonSale and they are just finding it from elsewhere on the web and packaging it up as their own freebie, no links to original sources, nothing. Then you have to go through all the crap of their checkout to get it...

This is a leaked Huawei version that's been around for months and the offer doesn't expire in xx amount of hours. The real links are direct from AVG themselves, you can download anytime...

Microsoft Security Wssentials - free - for virus protection
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware - free - as added tool which picks up registry hacks etc from unscrupulous installs (like websearch/toobars) full scan once a month for frequent user
CCleaner (as previously commented) also includes added tools like registry cleaner/startup/system restore cleaner)
If you want a free pc optimiser Wise Registry Cleaner - free - not only cleans your registry but also will optimise your pc
CCleaner does not clean windows installed but not longer required updates and other clutter - if you are short on space or want to get rid of all unnecessary Wise Disk Cleaner will clear more - run also the slimming down tool (but don't check help files/wallpaper if you need/use them)
Windows Defragmenter does a basic job it defrags all split files - there are many free alternatives but my preference is Mydefrag running the System Disk Monthly - which sorts files during the defrag process into an order which gives a slight performance enhancement in boot times

but what do I know? I had 22 pcs + 1server to mantain and keep upto date for 2 years plus fix other pc's/laptops in person and over the interweb thingy

Also it's a good idea to keep all your software, where financially possible, up to date - as such I use CNet's Download App + Filehippo Update Checker both free (but beware to remove them from startup as you won't need them every boot)

Enjoy and please feel free to comment or troll or just give your own personal negative feedback/criticism of my own choices.. the thing is it will be wasted because I've heard it all before and everyone is an expert - I will not be back here to reply... enough said

if you want a program to clean up clutter id recommend CCleaner from preform.com its free and very simple to use

Totally agree with that statement, save yourself some money and use CCleaner, I've been using it for years and never had a problem.
oUkTuRkEyIII
....And cue the tech heads :p

Heat from me. Good program.

I guess I'm a bit of a tech head. I take an unhealthy interest in these things heh but I don't see any problem with software like this. With a billion people using Windows, can anyone really say that software that has a suite of tools will or won't help anyone? I don't think you can. Silly to even try.

My own personal way of keeping my PC going is to just Google my way out of any problem that turns up rather than rely on a lot of installed tools that may or may not do anything. I do have autoruns its a nice free thing for plucking out stuff that demands to start up with your PC when you have no use for it doing that and the software itself doesn't offer a way to stop it. (msconfig should never be used for this, it creates more problems than it solves, disable something in msconfig and if you later remove the software, it won't be removed properly from the registry) But really PC's are so fast today that I don't think it makes any real noticeable difference whether ipod service starts up or not. These things just annoy me :)
I have 2 apps installed for cleanup/tuneup.
The first is CCleaner, which will delete anything you not needed (also use secure delete so cant be recovered after you have deleted it).
Advanced System Care, runs in the background.

Also helps to run disk defragmenter every few months. I run it over night.

If anyone plans on using a free anti-virus program, use avast! It's much better than AVG's software. Otherwise, if you have a Barclays account and use their Online Banking service; you can download the latest version of Kaspersky Internet Security for FREE here. If you are eligible for this offer, and are a Windows PC user; I can think of no reason not to use this as your main security product.

Bitdefender, Kaspersky and F-Secure are the top three security companies in the world, so use any of their products if you are going to pay for an anti-virus program or internet security suite. They consistently come out top in all independent lab tests year-on-year. Here is one of the most recent tests which AV-TEST carried out (AV-TEST are an independent IT-security institute). I had a read of the results and article yesterday, a very interesting read, if you are into security or a bit of a security expert (like me).

Anyway, if anyone has any questions related on security whatsoever, please ask, I will be more than happy to answer them. :)

I was using mse because a couple of years ago it seemed to be highly rated for free software, but now seems to have dropped down the list of free antivirus software. Do you think I should ditch it for avast?

Secondly, my wife's laptop seems to have a major problem. She is still using Internet Explorer and constantly. Whenever she opens a new tab for example, gets this "Congratulations, you have won ..... " message talking at her. Is there any way to get rid of it. I've looked for software to stop all these ads popping up but can't decide if it is worth installing any of it, or if I will end up making matters worse. Would uninstalling IE then re-installing be any use?

Hi lowrieh1:)

Firstly yes, please ditch MSE by all means on all your PCs/laptops in your household. To be honest, it is a rubbish piece of software, I have written a detailed comment about it in previous threads, please read it here.

Secondly, use Google Chrome in future, it's security is very good. It's uses something called sandboxing, you can watch a short video about it here; the video explains it very well - in simple terms.

Finally, follow my specific advice below, to solve your wife's laptop (make sure you are connected to the internet at all times whilst following these steps):

1. Download and install Malwarebytes. Then do a Full Scan.

2. Download F-Secure Online Scanner and run the scan. This is a brilliant piece of kit, as it's under a 5MB download and requires no installation whatsoever. Once you have downloaded the file, just double-click on it and then run the scan - then close the program when finished. Once it's closed, you can just delete that file, and it's all gone. I used it yesterday myself, it's extremely fast as well, only took five minutes on mine. :)

3. Finally, uninstall MSE and then install the free version of Avast Then do another Full Scan with avast!

After you've followed my steps, please let me know if any malware was found and removed; and if your wife's laptop is now okay. Also, if you need any more advice; please ask.

Hope this helps, (I really hope it does, as it took ages to type this and do the links) :p

Secondly, use Google Chrome in future, it's security is very good.

http://blog.elliottkember.com/chromes-insane-password-security-strategy

You can't say a browser that doesn't even hide or encrypt the passwords it saves has very good security.
One of Google's employees (Justin Schuh) has given a reason as to why they did that. You can read it here.

A bit like saying leave your front door wide open because if someone wants to rob you they will get in anyway. Security is put in place to deter criminals and make it harder for them, doing nothing is just stupid.
I completely understand what you're saying, in fact, I agree with you; I do believe there should be at least some encryption involved. However, as a whole, Google Chrome is still an excellent web browser for simplicity, speed and security (apart from the minor issue above). ;)

Hi Transformers, I ended up taking your advice and swapped to Avast. Obviously I can see no difference but I guess it seems to be the highest rated at the moment, I still believe AVG is a great free antivirus, thanks for the advice anyway! :)

You're more than welcome Mike17396. To be totally honest with you, I haven't tried avast! personally, however from research and looking at independent data from AV-TEST and AV-Compatives, amongst others, I can tell you it is the best free anti-virus software out there. Use Malwarebytes too (the free version is good enough), just do a Full Scan every month or so, and both of those security products together, should do the job nicely.

By the way, just in case anyone is wondering why I haven't used avast! personally, it's because I am using McAfee at the moment (don't ask why, long story) but I definitely aim to swap it for Kaspersky Internet Security 2014 soon; as Barclays customers get it free. If it wasn't for the Barclays offer though, I would probably be using avast! :)

It appears that if you have had the 30 day trial and it has expired then the installer will not supply the serial. When installed it is not a licensed version but a 374 day trial, and the license number shown is "IB73Q-I2NB6-6G7JM-QUNVP-K3ONR-O". This is not helpful,since it needs another 4 alphanumeric characters at the end to be accepted. If anyone installing it does see the full number, please copy and paste it into notepad and make it public here please....
I just downloaded it's a 30 day trial that is really annoying.
Just wondering if those getting a standard 30 day trial have opted out of using the search bar, AVG homepage and so on?!?

Fingers crossed anyway as my F-Secure has just met it's maker!
its a bit hit and miss installing this.
I used the free version before and thought I would give this a try as its free for year.
1st computer 64bit installed fine got the 274 day trial.
2nd computer 32bit installed only got 30 trial, uninstalled and reinstalled got 274 day trial
3rd computer 32bit removed the free version and installed from link no serial when installing put in serial manually would not work.
tried 3 times uninstalling and installing but could not get the 1 year to work. gave up and went back to free version on that computer.

I had a Samsung handset destroyed because avg didn't stop a virus, just saying
Clearly I'm blind. Where can I download this?
F-Secure... F-Secure... Oh yes, they make antivirus software. Great bit of scaremongering in the pursuit of trying to do the industry a favour.

There are approximately 900,000 apps on Google Play, and I would be amazed if the number dodgy ones on it amounted to even 0.0001%.

If it makes you feel better to install this, or any other antivirus software on your phone, then fine. But for anyone else who doesn't go around installing stuff willy nilly, it is a total waste of time and your phone's resources.

The permissions are a bit unerving - includes allowing the app to make phone calls wthout your permission!!

Stay clear, do some research.
Looks like a decent product for kids safety. Not a lot of money and even that is going to a good cause.
Heat added.

Kasperky and this going for cheap

Seems like destroyer pricing, Norton is bound to go out of business now

Unlikely. Norton still dominate by a long way and their product is better than AVG.

Voted hot - must be somewhat better than the free version... although thats been fine for me.

Whats not to like for 95 pence - which goes to charity anyway!

Doesn't seem to be working!
Is anyone else getting this message?:

Thank you for visiting AVG LiveKive™
We are currently experiencing a few problems with this page, however we are working to fix these as quickly as possible.

Please come back later. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Thanks,
The AVG LiveKive Team


I got the same thing and when i did try again it said I already had an account to the registration must have worked. when I looked at the "my proudcts" link it said I had no licences. Trying to add the 5Gb offer just seems to add a trial to the paid for version.

Not sure I'd trust data of any value to a site that can't get the signup process working properly. I'm sticking to Dropbox too. Thanks OP for the heads op tho.
If you get the 'experiencing problems' message it actually registers you for the 30 day trial. I eventually set up a new account with a new email and managed to register for the free 5GB service.

I cannot see any way of registering for the free service with an account that has been registered for the trial.

Edited By: dingdong on Oct 13, 2010 09:57: .
Even though it's expired, i'd like to say thanks very much, did it when the deal was going and got my key today and everything fine, got a full year of AVG a good trusted product!
Got my code. Thanks.
For those saying it is bad have a look here

it seems to do well in these tests.
From my experience, it doesn't catch many viruses. But, for free, its Hot!

AVG let a lovely bit of Malware onto my brother in laws pc. Took a bit of work on my part to get rid of it, also got rid of AVG and replaced it with NOD32.
I tried it recently when a PC went down. Only helped to make things worse. Ubuntu live saved the day in the end.

Not to quibble too much, but are we in the freebies section now giving heat and rep for just reporting free security programs? I've seen Microsoft Security Essential thread rocket into heat, i have seen panda A/V, now this. How many more normal free products are going to be given heat.

The second question then becomes, if I make a list of all the freebie Security Rescue CDs, plus a list of all the Free AVs will I then get heat and rep? Seems silly to me....


eg Vipre Rescue System:

http://live.sunbeltsoftware.com/

or Sardu (A multiple AV detection system):

http://www.sarducd.it/tutorial.html


How about the most awesome cleanup tool of them all, HitmanPro:

http://www.surfright.nl/en/hitmanpro

(Almost 6 engines powering it, PLUS its got Force Breech - hold down Ctrl before you double click on the HitmanPro Icon, and it kills any malware processes running at the current time) - includes Gdata, Nod,PrevX, Asquared.


Just seems a bit silly to vote each one hot....I guess I can see how if you don't have any A/V at the moment you may vote it hot. However, each and everyone, without knowing detection rates seems bizarre to me. Just a personal opinion.



Why shouldn't people give heat and rep for this and similar posts?

If a product is free and its serves its purpose why can't it be hot?

Not everyone is aware of what is out there. You obvioulsy know what you are talking about when it comes to A/V and the like. Not everyone does. You are no doubt all too aware of the dodgy free downloads that are offered when you type in 'free antivirus' into your search engine. This is safe - it may not be the best available but it's free, readily available and as far as I know, safe to use. And its better than nothing, which is what many people have once their free Norton has run out.

Why don't you list the others you've mentioned in a new post - do the rest of us a favour and share your knowledge of free A/V and anything else that is useful and costs nothing. It would be most welcome I'm sure. I'd give you heat and rep if you did.

Why shouldn't someone get rep added if they've taken the time listing a product or service in order to share something with other people? Surely doing something for no financial gain, or any sort of gain at all for that matter, deserves some form of a thank you?
Sighs.. I think i'm a hypocrite! I can't stand it when people complain about the voting system, and i've just gone and done it :oops:

AVG slowed my PC down so I switched to free Avira. Much better IMO.
seemes to have worked okay
thanks despite not understanding polish ive given it a go
slackrat77;7307047
very much doubt it'll let you do this.
cos it registers a serial code online.
once you've had your trial you cant just keep getting 90s days free from the same product.

otherwise they'd never sell it.


Just re-register use a different email and they'll send you another different serial code...
(I already installed on 2 computer with 2 different serial code..)


---------------------------------

This is AVG Internet Security (package) come with Firewall and other part of tweek etc....
AVG dose take a lot ram and slow down - depend on your computer or laptop performance.


I understand most you happy with other products like avast virus, comodo, zone alarm, many "basic free products"
anyway feel free to try 3 months.... if you dont like it? just unstall it - simple...


People dose pay for these subscription:

just an antivirus scanner tho.

no internet security...limited stuff
free tho, but very limited.

loads of free antivirus and firewalls out there most are average to very good and better than the paid ones. I use pc tools firewall and avast virus scanner as they is the only things that seems to work well with win7 64 bit......has probs with avg free virus scanner, norton 360 (trial trashed my win7 install when i uninstalled it, grr!), zone alarm free, loads of others

and what exact extras does this have that are actually necessary....none, it will just slow down your pc
