Avast Free Antivirus Avast Free Antivirus

I prefer Avast! 5 stars
Which is the best Antivirus software? For most users something that does a good job, is easy to set up and doesnt need any fiddling with to keep it doing its job properly is the thing to have. The fact that it is free is the icing on the cake. My family and friends often ask me to look at their PCs that have become infected, often whilst running the AV that shipped with it, even when kept up to date! Im sure we all know what those AVs are! So after uninstalling the overpriced junk suite bloatware, then running Stinger and Sysclean, Ill install AVG or Avast! Sometimes one cant quite clear everything, but the other one always gets it. Which is best? At the moment I prefer Avast! as it does a good screensaver scan, but if you dont use a screensaver you might prefer to use AVGs scheduler. Apart from that theres not much in it. Then I follow with one of the very good Freeware Personal Firewalls and a couple of Anti-Spyware programmes and Bingo. Faster, better and FREE! Price: Free

AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition

AVG is still king 5 stars
My nephew gave me his new Dell laptop (running XP) to look at as it kept getting the Blue Screen Of Death. A quick inspection showed although his McAfee suite was up to date a virus had got in and switched it off! I couldnt re-activate the McAfee so I took it off and ran Stinger and Sysclean from Safe Mode. After that I put on Avast! and although that cleared up most of the machine there were 3 infected items it could not delete. So, I took off Avast! and installed AVG Free. The first scan found 50 more infected items that had been missed by the other softwares. Apart from a corrupted IE left by the infections (now using Firefox) the laptop is back to normal and no longer trying to spam the universe! Setting up is easier than tying your shoe laces and the protection is bullet proof , Ive been using AVG successfully on my own PC for years now with never a problem, even though my PC is permanently online, and best of all AVGs free! Price: Free
