    Get rid of Firefox.

    Avira AntiVir is the most effective free anti virus software.

    i've found it is worse for updates than AVG however, but overall the detection rates make it the better choice imo

    mozilla/ avg 8 no probs as yet

    I recommend Avast Antivirus as well. I am using home edition and never had a problem with it so far.

    Plus it has an on access scanner that will scan your PC while you are browsing your computer.

    Have a look in The Download thread for a few free Antivirus links

    Yep, Avast gets my vote too.

    i'm running avg8 with fluff-fox on 3 machines, no problems. have you checked flip-fox for any add-in updates and that no add-ins are freaking out?

    I also use firefox and avg and have had no compatibility issues and i love firefox but am beginning to hate AVG as it constantly wants to upgrade to the full "AVG Internet Security" which is annoying and it doesnt automatically scan as well as it used to if you dont upgrade.
    I am considering swapping to Avast or are there any other better ones?
    thanks

    Yep, Avast gets my vote too.

    But are there any better features of avast compared to AVG or is it just personal preference, as after changing a couple of AVGs settings i think ive fixed it.
