Anyone know of a decient anti-virus software besides AVG? I had AVG on my computer and it would not receive the updates. I uninstalled the program, deleted any folders left in explore, ran a reg mech., then restarted the computer. I attempted to reload AVG but it said there was an active program on the computer when there wasn't. Maybe I missed something. I want to put a program on and if it won't accept AVG, what else could I use? Thanks for the help.
will free anti-viruses play nice with norton? I have norton 2003 on my system and it ran out a few months but i dont feel like uninstalling it (talking about folks comp, not mine)?
If the subscription is dead, just uninstall it. It's not doing any good at all and it can interfere with other AV programs. Still uses clock cycles too. Just the performance issue alone is enough reason to can it.
Winpatrol (for catching spyware trying to edit your startup)
A"squared" (for Trojans and the like)
Spybot (That'll be for spyware then )
Spambully (anti spam, works well for me)
