What do you "experts" recommend then ??

Are you talking about AVG FREE, or any of the AVG range of products ??

I've used AVG FREE for a number of years now on multiple XP, Vista and 7 installations and never had any problems.

My key for Avast is bogus. I just got a popup advising that I have amnesty until July 31.

I bought this copy from a friend at his PC shop. Former friend. Acquaintence. Stranger. I never saw the guy before in my life.

I am satisified with Avast, but I might give eset a go. I feel like I should pay Avast - I have been using it for about a year.

I do want my money back from that guy.

Whats interesting for all the nod32 lovers is the software is ranked 29th on that list whereas MSE is now 2nd.

I have never had this problem. It could be because I use AVG Free.

Pinning applications to other applications?
I like the new taskbar, but I find it getting a little cluttered with all of the applications I use on a regular basis (thus warranting pinning them to the taskbar). Being kind of OCD, this bugs me as when I open programs that aren't pinned to the toolbar for a little bit (games, the various...
