So i got my new laptop (yay its pink!) and the trial norton and mcafee are running out tomorrow. on my old laptop i had avast and avg i think....but i didnt really like avast (i think thats what it was) it kept asking me questiuons that i wasnt sure about.....sounds stupid right!

basically i need a easy to use firewall/anti virus. Free would be good but if there is a simple one that asks minimal questions that exists on the cheap then thats ok as well.

many thanks

I use MIcrosoft Security Essentials.

It's not bad but slows your machine down when it's updating the virus definitions.

you're not meant to run both Norton and mcafee together only 1 AV should run at any one time.

run the removal tools


Then try avast free http://www.avast.com/free-antivirus-download

edit .. They will all ask questions when they find something. You could set it to just quarantine everything it finds that is suspicious.

Not if you use a computer built within the last 10 years...

Agree MSE, but it doesn't slow mine down, in fact I hardly ever get reminded that it's there.

And don't forget, Windows has a built in firewall from XP onwards (which is enabled by default on Win7).

I presume it's Windows 7? Yes, it's already running. Forget about it.

I'd go with Microsoft Security Essentials. AVG is bloated and I've gone off Avast.

I get Kaspersky free which I like but when it expires, I'll go with MSE.

thanks all
