Soo recommends AVG - see attached link : http://www.computeractive.co.uk/vnunet/downloads/2129071/avg-antivirus-free-edition

It gets undated (automatically) virtually every day and sits in the background checking all files and file types. Best of all - it's FREE.

Exactly, why pay for something thats free! I recomend http://www.free-av.com/ I have been using it for years and swear by it.
Is free cos you dont get all the other resource hoging extras like what is bundled in the packs for sale. So if its just and anti virus you want, grab it for free! :thumb:

zone labs is pretty good, quite expensive tho, you can get a months free trail at www.zonelabs.com, or go to a pc world and buy mcafee, i paid 29.99 for mine neaver had a problem since!! :thumb:

Try Bullguard. You get 2 months free trial and seems to work well.
I had Norton before and the computer has had to be de-bugged twice in the last four months.

you can also use it on more than on computer where as most anti virus limit it to one copy per computer....

My mcafee is installable on more than 1 pc. Nowhere near shop prices either :).
