    I stuck with AVG, upgraded & payed for 3 yrs(about 1 1/2 yrs ago), and so far its worked.
    I get regular updates, warnings, even here on some threads.
    So far so good.

      Microsoft Security Essentials. Works well and is updated regularly.

        If you're running Windows 7 and have a good NAT firewall (like Netgear), MS "Security Essentials" is all you will need.. I gave up the "antivirus" scams 2+ years ago - and have had no problems at all....

        You have to be mindfull of the sites you go to, and what & where you get "downloads" from... But mostly - it's a ploy from McAffe & Symantec to generate $$$ for themselves... Scaring the public into spendiing big money for protection that can be maintained for free...



        Good Luck!!
