Just Remember to UnTick what you don't need AKA Spam.

If your Computer is running Sloooooooooow then also use CCleaner & do a Scan.

I am a fan of microsoft security essentials - seems to not slow down the machine at all and I have had no problems with it.

Avast Free edition here as well - been using for about a year and it doesn't seem to hog system or take ages to load up. Picks up stuff and seems to work well :)

No it's Not.If you register with them by only given your email Address they unlock it for 1 full Year.They never send you any emails if you UnTick the box as I stated in 1st post.
I've used this on Family & workmates netbooks,laptops & PC's & everyone has been very happy with it.I've been using it for years now & it's great.

Personally I like the MSE one, I find Avast can be a pain after a year or so usage. And even though you can turn it off the Virus Database has been updated message is bloody annoying, it seems to slow the machine up while it is doing all that, MSE is the way forward IMO.
