    Would recommend AVAST or AVG, both are free

    Would go for AVG

    Would go for AVG



    Any reason why this one is better?

    Another good free one free-av.com/

    Avast is actually proven to be slightly better than AVG in terms of system overheads and in detection rates.

    Make sure you get a firewal too, comodo is excellent and free.

    If you use barclays banking online you can get kaspersky free - just follow the link on the at a glance page.

    [url]www.avira.com[/url] is a good free AV program, the paid for version is also cheaper than Mcafee. (approx £13)
