At the moment I'm using McAfee which is not bad, but I'd like to hear what other people are using, especially if anyone is using some free stuff Very Happy

I've got 4 computers so a move to a good, free anti virus software seems the right way to go really Very Happy

All recommendations appreciated Very Happy

Gorra say that AVG is the best freebie AV out there. First class!

Don't be put off by the fact that it's given away for nowt, it's very good and does just what it says on the tin. Of course it doesn't come in a tin, but if it did......

Ditto.

I've used the Avast Free Home Edition for 18 months.

It's as good as any as the ones you pay for, and better than most!

I've installed it on family's PCs, friends PCs, friends of friends PCs.

www.avast.com - Follow links for Home Edition.

Cheers.
