    well although it allowed the download of the others when I went to open them, Antivir popped up and stopped each one, except for the second one, which just is a line of text and nothing happens

    As it's the free edition, it only has on demand scanning - there's no real time protection, but this means it's perfect as a backup scanner

    It does run a couple of services that you can turn off when you're not using it if you want to save a little extra memory (but don't forget to turn them back on before you try to launch it).

    I never had that problem, but take a look here:

    Did you manage to get it installed before it expired? Is your date/time correct on your computer?

    That was it. The date I had on my computer was a year from now. Doh! Thanks! Question though, does that mean this expires in a year or something?

    I think they limit it to one year to ensure you upgrade to the new version each year when it's released, that way they ensure you stay up to date. Still free though - I used version 7, and now use version 8 - both free editions

    Re: Which Anti-Virus Software do you use?

    have been using avg with great success for a long time, but given my ip provider gives us a free av/anti-spyware suite , i figure i may as well try what i pay for with my ip subscription anyway. if i had to buy it, i wouldn't..it's considered to be quite pricey but..very good as well..but given it's "free" may as well use and see how it does.
