What is a good and reliable anti virus? My anitvirus just gave out and i download AVG but it has spyware on it. It pisses me off all the pop ups. If possible where can i get a free version

I am using Symantec Antivirus. It is a good anti virus since the day i have been using it I never get infected by any virus. I also have lavasoft's Adaware program and spybot to destroy all those unwanted softwares in my computer.

hmm.. which version of symantec antivirus you have and isnt it lowering you PC speed very much? About spyware programs you are correct - for me they are much more useful and i use Lavasoft Adaware antispyware tool :)

I am really a big fan of Symantec software. One my first pc that is the antivirus I had and viruses would get thru easily. But that was like 5 years ago so maybe they got better. For spyware I use spyswipe and spybot.

if you really are fan of Symantec, then try new ones and later tell us what you think about them :) and i allmost forgot to say about online virus scans - you can try these too from nod32 home page :)

Check out toptenreviews.com. They have reliable reviews of AntiVirus, AntiSpyware and Firewalls. I use BitDefender myself. Its a all-in-one. Its even working well on my new lappie with Vista. Hope this helps.

http://www.toptenreviews.com shows very strange things i think - Biitdefender in first place!? I dont believe it! nod got lower vote for easy-to-use, but as far as i know new NOD versions is VERY easy to use if you dont swith to advanced mode, but stay with standart mode.

I use NOD32 antivirus - it is fast and stable. in secondplace i can place Kaspersky antivirus. they both is not freeware products, but have trials (for 30 day for free) to download from their web sites. if you dont have money you also can download illegal version on dc++, torrent or others p2p sites all over the internet. good luck!
