hello my new best friend, where did you say you lived again ? [img]<___base_url___>/uploads/emoticons/default_dry.png[/img]

lol been saving for quite a while though. (not that rich really :( )

i know this is an old thread but avg antivirus is awsom even if you do use the free trial. i've had WAY better resualts with avg as apposed to anyother (i.e. norton, mcaffie, other stupid virus programs)


good luck,



p.s. ad-aware is the best spywear as well (the free one is awsome too)

Norton AntiVirus is the perfect solution for bogging up your machine. Also, I hear that it's a paper shield. I would suggest looking into something like F-Secure.

AVG [/url][url=] Free Util, free upgrade, Cleaned all the viruses I've got, runs in safe mode too (why would an AV product not you say?, ask Norton/Sophos.. )


Also I'd suggest something like ZoneAlarm (

I say that Norton and Symantec are very good paper shields. AVG is definitely the way to go if you have to get antivirus on the cheap. Otherwise, consider F-Secure.
