Which one is better, the free AVG anti-virus or the EZ anti-virus that came with my DSL packager?

In my humble opinion you can't beat AVG, it always does good on any virus test I've ever saw. It's free with free updates. ;)

EZ antivirus fails to detect some things, see this Antivirus Review.
And updates cost money ( I think)

Of course it all depends on who you believe. But I use AVG and have never used EZ anti-virus, but I have tested AVG a little bit myself. It detected viruses I wrote myself, crude and primitive admittedly, but these were unknown viruses and AVG Zoomed in on them immediately.
So I advise AVG over nearly anything. :tazz: and I never advise something that cost money if a free alternative is available.
