|I've been using AVG Free for many years now. Ever since Win 98 on my old PC. I don't understand why you are having trouble getting ot to install. No virus has ever got past it. I've never had a virus "infection". Plus I never open attachments from strangers.|

|I use Antivir and so far had no problems with it. Had AVG which was easyer to use, but had some viruses that it never detected. With the programs I run, I will never use Norton or Mcaffe again.|

|Yeah Norton and Mcaffee are definatly system hogs. Along with AOL's junk software! I used to use AVG untill it had a bug in it's update that wasnt compatable with Nero. My system went into a constant 'reboot loop', and never stopped rebooting. They finaly came out with a patch to fix that Nero issue, but I went to antivir before the patch came out, and never went back to AVG. I also got rid of Nero, never used it anyways. Never tryed Panda's software yet.|

Sorry for this being late on this post but personally I have three favourites.
1.) Avira AntiVir - TRUELY my fav.
2.) Nod32 - watch out, have a few troubles signing into MSN after I installed this one
3.) AVG - it's nice, but slow on reacting.
4.) EZ Trust - this is a nicer version of a combination software (Firewall, Antivirus)
5.) Avast! - Umm,., ok, few problems with this one but I'll give it some props. I dislike the way it looks aka Interface
6.) Kaspersky - Pretty nice, but it's a commerical version so it's all about money.
7.) Trend Micro Housecall - Wow! I love this one because you can scan yourself online without having to install anything but an active x.
8.) PandaSoft - Same as above
9.) Norton AntiVirus - I strongly dislike this but many people seem to love it
10.) McAfee - It's ok, haven't had any problems.
Now, please note these are all the one's I've tried. I guess it's basically a trial and error thing. Install one play with it for a few weeks, if you like it keep it. Just remember to uninstall the one that you currently have before installing any other one.
Hope this helps.
