What is a good free anti virus programme? Had been using A.V.G. but just got new pc and am setting it up and have been having trouble getting a clean version downloaded. Thanks in advance for your much appreciated help :-)

I downloaded AVG 8 and adaware from download.com, both were corrupt....same with a friend...Use an alternative link....However Antivir is far far better in my opinion.

Theres also avast - forget the link but i could never seem to get the updater to work, and it seems just as bloated as avg and nortons anyway.

I recommend Avast or Anti-Vir. If you decide to try Avast, disable "VRDB generation", and you wont notice a difference in your system performance at all. :)

any system.Well,except Windows...

Sick of PC'S Every time you turn a PC on you have to wait half your life for the anti virus thing to do its bit, I thought a coumpter was to surf the net & down load stuff and do work on not spend your life messing around with anti virus rubbish, I heard you don't have to worry about all that on a Mac computer, dose anone know?? if that sounds true, ive got an Imac on my auction but now i'm thinking of keeping it.

If... everyone went to mac then there would be more malicious software for the OS X platform. BUt yes it's true macs are bullshit free....almost.

joe12, May 16, 5:06am
Thanks puddleduck I got this G3 IMAC given to my for a good deal, but if it dosn't sell on my auction I will keep it, I just have to work out how to conect my LCD screen to it, not into looking into CTR radiation screens, cheers:-)

#11 you're obviously incompetant if you 'have to wait half your life time' for the pc to get its' act together after booting up........

deodar, May 16, 5:29am
Joe 12 why all the restore disks then? &600Mhz isn't blindingly fast is it?

#1... go to www.filehippo.com. Have a look at the free ones, or just get the most popular.

joe12, May 16, 6:21am
#15 you know what i'm mean? computers are for people to work on and do stuff not spend most of your time showing off how you can keep the PC safely going...hahaha..heheh
