Hi. just had my acer back from repair and done a restore to factory settings. went to download AVG free edition and just keep getting an error, but the computer downloads other things like messenger fine.
anyone recommend another free antivirus?
thanks

i have a thing about avast. i had it for a while and then my laptop blue screened. then my other half put it on his and his bluescreened straight away so we think it was that as both changed back to avg and then had no probs. will check on the others.

I used to use AVG free then changed to this, find it much better

i tried avast and it found false postives on my pc
some files from cyberlink powerdvd, that eset, clamwin, trend housecall and a few others said were fine.

if i'd cleaned them off, power dvd wouldnt work anymore
