AVG was performing better than Eset Smart Security 4 but it quarantine all keys for cracking programs when is listed in a directory and before that iti freezes activity on PC.
Also I don't understand if any antivirus has to protect Vista or Windows 7 because the file system has some own protection and don't alow changes Of courese i don't relay on that but as an experiment just try to delete another Vista instalation on a second drive and see what hapens ... nothing, you can't delete Vista!
Thanks for Kaspersky, I'll give it a try too.

Yeah, you are talking like BSA
But obviously it is a false alarm which is not allowed for a good antivirus program, so AVG is a bad one and disturbing. Also the action of quarantine it is doing without my authorization and no way I could manage it. Bad point either. Same for Eset!
I remeber Kaspersky was better after they manage to hold on the terible pig scream and to let you chose about what action to do.
It is my computer and I do not alow a software to make what it want

About cracking, hacking and other it is another story but if I had to pay for all software I was testing and then thrown to the dogs for sure it is more than a life wages and my time for testing (from Windows 3) I was not paid a dime, so who has right? I think both, but I do not agree to pay when you don't use software to make money or just see if you like or not.
Like you do, I use a testing version of Windows 7 Till Linux will be good enough to do all you want and software will work on any hardware platform.

@ sergio3fr, with your cracking and hacking programs, how many unwanted, infected executables have you got to date?

I'm talking about Vundo variants and bots (identity thieves) that usually come along with these 'special' cracks.

I always use AVG internet security. The standard anti virus does not have all the extra firewall etc built in.
I have used it for years now and never had any major problems with any operating system. Windows 7 is no exception.
AVG does give very good support when needed.

I agree with Jayce, (while some cracks do work, i've tried some in the past that do i've since stopped). As far as antiVirus software goes i'm using Avast! & it's been working seamlessly since build 7057.

I am more than willing to believe that computer virii can be life threatening.
Nobody i know has been killed yet, but i feel it is just a matter of time.

Fair Dinkum!
