    which one from above is best en

    I have used both Avast and AVG... Avast is by far the best out of the two.. It doesnt slow down your computer like AVG does.

    i will try avast then if i dont like it i will try avg lol thanks evryone

    Avast definitely. AVG is slow and not as good.

    I use anti-vir used it for years and about 3 months ago PCFormat did a test on best free anti-virus and it came out on top

    microsoft essentials is good, and free

    i have avast on my laptop and avg on my desktop - avast was pretty annoying when the american guy kept on saying 'virus database updated!' especially embarrassing if I was in a cafe or something... managed to shut him up though in the end.

    The best of the free ones is actually Microsoft Security Essentials
    Its totally free, no advertisements, no annoying pop-ups and no telling you that they have a better version if you pay.

    I used to use ESET security essentials and now even though my subscription is paid for till May next year, I use the microsoft one, out of choice because it's so good and it works just as good as the expensive security essentials.

    The only advice I'd give is if you do install the Microsoft one, go into Settings, the Advanced and make sure ALL boxes are ticked.

    I can read what I like and post what I like, sweetheart. You basically got as many different answers as there are posts on this thread so it's no different to googling. Just lazy.

    AVG thebest freehttp://free.avg.com/gb-en/homepage


    Avoid AVG - really bad now

    Use AVIRA or AVAST

    yeah avg is pretty slow

    i used avira and can't complain (on linux now), so if you;ve already installed avast and don't like it or want to try another, you should look at

    avira antivir: download.cnet.com/Avi…914

    or (based on others' recommendations, I've not tried it)

    Microsoft Essentials: microsoft.com/Sec…ls/

    You could get loads of different answers on here and to save you time look here:

    forum.pcformat.co.uk/vie…570

    They have many people to help out who know what they are talking about
    Thus like i said on test this one came out the best:

    free-av.com/en/…tml

    Just make sure you hit the free one
