Anti Virus AVG

I think that all the virus occured on windows vista will occur will occur on windows 7 and a bit more. So watch your chops ....

The free best anti virus that are compatible with 7 are Avast and AVG
BUT if you want a really good anti virus you should get vista kapersky or Norton(big heavy program, which will cause disturbance)

So far, no infection . . . and still free, fast and light.

Kind regards.

Norton is a big No No in my books. I've had nothing buy trouble from that bloated mess of a program. Including myself ive been asked to get rid of viruses and trojans about 5-6 times, funny enough 4 of those times the computer had norton on it -.-

AVG combined with spybot Search and Destroy is my award winning key combination to a clean pc

I use Antivir, Spybot and a-squared. They work perfectly, and I no have virus or spyware problem.

Compare results. It might be biased since i hate norton but,

Norton has a monthly subscription, AVG does not
5 years virus free with AVG, Norton pretty much failed within 6 months
Resources that AVg use < Norton's resources

IMO its clear which to have... and it has no annoying please pay now alerts -.-
