  • antivirus software recommendations, anyone?

    Hey all. Been a while!

    Hoping you guys might be able to help me.

    I have Norton here and at work, going to expire. Not completely happy with it. I went out today and purchased McAfee. I know a few that use it and like it.

    Well, I decided to try to search a little more over the internet and now I am not so sure. Read some customer reviews.

    Thought I would throw it out here to see what you guys use, likes, dislikes?

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks in advance!

    Good To See You!! Come Back And Play.

    I Have Nortons, Never Have Had A Virus With It.

    EDITED TO ADD: IT GIVE YOU REMINDERS TO CLEAN THINGS, YOU JUST CLICK "FIX IT" AND IT AUTOMATICALLY CLEANS YOUR TEMP FILES, ETC, AND A "DISC OPTIMUMIZATION (sp?)" WHICH DEFRAGS IT ABOUT ONCE A WEEK.

        It's Not Confusing, It Will Give You A Little Pop Up Reminder One A Week Or Everyother Week, Just Hit Fix It And It Makes The Computer Work A Little Better, And It Will Back Up Your Computer Onto Discs Once A Month.

          I have AVG and love it. You can download it at http://www.grisoft.com/ww.home-and-office-security. I've had Norton and Mcafee and hated both. They are nearly impossible to delete off your computer. Every time I thought I got rid of it, it would magically appear again.

            I agree with floridagirly68.
            All our PCs and both laptops have AVG free 8.0 and it serves us very well.

                      I have Trend Micro and it does a very good job. I've heard that the Avast program is good, too.

                        I have Trend Micro too. Norton let a trogan virus in and crashed my computer.

                          Thanks all! I really do appreciate it!

                          I have never heard of Trend Micro and avast.

                          So many options, now what to do. I am looking for protecting work computers (very small business, just 2 computers) and my computer at home I use for work.

                          I was planning on using the free AVG for my work's laptop, but the boss wants something more for the pc's.

                          Thanks for all the input!!!! I am thinking of returning the McAfee I just bought.

                            AVG has an upgraded pay version that offers more on the site that I posted.
