My anti-virus expired already and I need to used another anti-virus software to safeguard my laptop. From mcafee which was already expired can you recommend any other anti-virus that are also trusted and been used for more members here or used most by many surfers? Are you using paid anti-virus or you're using free anti-virus?

i use avg which is good except for the stupid daily scans it does which keeps lagging my game when i am playing. it takes so much RAM just to scan my computer! and everytime i have to quit my game, quit the anti-virus and then restart the game again. really irritats me and i could not find the button to stop those annoying daily scans. pfft...

Oh really? it's annoying if that will always happen specially your on your game. Better I didn't used avg. I used now avast for more than a month already. so far, no problem for my system and some of my other online programs.

I'm currently using the free edition of Avira. I can say that I'm very satisfied with it. No viruses whatsoever for months.

Thank You for you question! my anti-virus in my laptop is AVAST because it is very good. It cost me nothing because it is a free version which has the capability to protect my system as a whole. And regards with...AVAST is very good in detecting virus in USB. So i suggest this anti-virus because i am an avid fan of it!

Hello Julyteen, For a long time I am using AVG free. It is not bad at all. It protects me from attacks and its instant and fast detection is a definite plus point. As I do not download and install softwares too much from web and surf very cautiously I never faced a serious threat indeed. In my opinion whatever the antivirus you use it should be updated on a daily basis. Happy Mylotting

I always surfing the net and sometimes download some files online, in my own opinion AVG is not safe if it is free but when it is license it's good. Are you using free AVG edition?

you are #2 response here who has positive experience with kaspersky. I already install it but one of my favorite online program after I installed it doesn't work. It does mean that this site is a virus carrier?

HI,... i am using Kaspersky antivirus. Kaspersky antivirus from the experience quite tough compared to other antivirus. But Kaspersky antivirus need different license fees for providing a free antivirus like AVG, Avira and others. For now i recommend Kaspersky antivirus.

hi julyteen I did use free AVG for years but it was not compatible with some new systems we installed so now I have Avira which is also free and its been excellent detecting any spyware and any virus and stopping them at once. if free AVG is compatible with the windows you have its really an excellent free choice and so is Avira too. either one is really great and every bit as good as norton.

I tried this free anti-virus before but when you are pron to access some external source of file like flask disk, memory card, etc it has a poor performance.

i use eset smart security, its not just an anti virus system, because it gives you email checker and firewall too. and eset doesnt slow down your computer, so i think everybody shoud use that.
