I ran an online Norton virus scan and it found 3 infected files. I'm thinking of acquiring a full-blown antivirus software in order to prevent future issues, and was wondering if there's any that really stand out above the rest. Just curious what some of you use, what you like about the software you have, what you don't like?

I can download and install Cogeco Security software from their website, so I may try that again for the time being, but would love to hear from some of you.

Hi sucosam,

There is some useful information that might interest you here, I use Avast myself and found it most satisfactory.

In my opinion Avira is better than Avast!
Avast! has some detection problems.
