harley88,

There are many options available to you. If you'd like a free antivirus, either AVG Free
or Avast are good, and they have paid versions as well. NOD32 is an extremely good program and well worth the money, and Kaspersky is also good. Just remember, you don't want more than one anti-virus installed at a time, as that can cause conflicts, leaving you more vulnerable and slowing your PC down.

Honestly, I have been using McAfee forever myself, and I've always kept up on spyware cleaning, and I always have 0 spyware, and 0 virus'. I swear by Mcafee. Takes up least amount of memory, as opposed to Clunky programs like Norton Utilities.

I like Trend Micro. Never let me down and a lot of people I know love it. I like AVG and Avast. Haven't used Nod32 yet and don't know if its free or not. I pwrsonally don't like Norton at all cause it slowed my computer down a lot, it ha snever protected me , and is jut bad in my opinion. Hope I helped.

I have to agree with Sari and say to go the NOD32 route. You won't be sorry! :whistling:
