If you want an anti virus software that IS completely free for a year then go to the link below and click on the relevant green download button and follow the prompts........ 8)

http://shop.ca.com/STContent/Microsoft/Default.aspx?sc_lang=en-US

This is highly recommended and comes with no crap or interferance from ads etc .........I use it my self and it’s the only one I will use........

I'm not a great believer in anti virus software as a whole and the reason is................. if Software Companies are developing software that get rid of / irradiate viruses and the software they produced actually worked then wouldn't they be putting them selves out of a job after all a 'worm' is a 'worm' and a 'Trojan' is a 'Trojan', so once you can kill them with one type of medicine why do the same ones come back ?..........doesn’t it make more sense to one way or another ensure there are plenty of ickies out there to get rid of or eradicate? and if so who has the technology to create them ?

As long as you have “fire wall” and if possible, and even better a router you will be quite safe, and if you install the above software it will also give you piece of mind and it really is free for a whole year and no rubbish with it…………………… 8) :wink:

I agree its good I ran AVG 7 for quite a long time until it allowed a parity virus to corrupt the MBR (Master Boot Record) on the main drive...... :evil:

been there Nobby .............. before CA Anti Virus Software I used nothing just sat behind a firerwall and a router and every now and then I ran ( and still do) "Spy-Bot" just to get rid of the odd gremlin that snuck in when the kids download the so called freebie games............. plus I get a lot of "looks" when sorting these websites..............
