    Fed up with AVG. Anyone know of a better freeware one? Don't like Norton
    and Mcafee gouging.

    AVG just doesn't seem to pick up the viruses before it gets to my machine.
    I used a couple of other anti-virus software programs and they report
    viruses that AVG never picked up.

    There is no reliable free antivirus solution. To be
    fully protected, you will need to pay for a good
    one. I recommend Kaspersky:

    My Motherboard came with a disk that has PCcillin on it. It scans web pages
    before it allows access, email, files and folders, checks for updates every
    hour, and does a complete scan after each update. The best I have ever had.

  11. I thought they were now charging an annual renewal fee.

    Is the downlaod free for only one year?
    do youhave to pay to use after one year?

    Or do you re-register under another name to get another free yesr?

    I'm using antivir for a couple of years now. Never had any problems.
    Have automatical updates I gave up Norton not only for the money, but
    beacause I found it too "heavy" for the system.

    Go and try ! It's made in Germany :))

    I'm using antivir for a couple of years. I never had any problem. I
    takes daily updates automaticaly. Just test it! No adware like AVG in
    your outgoing messages :)) I have license to use Norton. I've got it
    with my new laptop but I find that Norton slows down my system.

    A REALLY Good one is AVG.... Free updates for a lifetime, and scans deep
    into the registry. I like it.

    Thanks for the link Petrigi, but I am using AVG, and have no complaints
    about it
    adding information in my outgoing messages, in fact most business systems do
    this nowadays
    anyway, and those packages aren't FREE !!! :)

    There may be an option to turn this off, but I haven't required that so I
    haven't looked for it.
