Microsoft Security Essentials, AVG 9, Malwarebytes, Avira,
Some of the old standbys are tricky to uninstall, (Norton in particular) so google up how to remove your old one, and be familiar.
Some programs run and in real time can stop a virus, some are scanners only.
Your best defense is right between your ears. Think before you click.
If you wouldnt want your Mother to see you on that site, dont go there.

To help you with that i suggest using WOT (firefox addon) and as a backup advisor mcafee siteadvisor. Before i go on a downloading website i always check with these two as it points out whether ppl have got malware from using the site

!! note sites like megaupload will be safe if the source of the link is safe !!

Other then that I'd suggest

== AVIRA Free for realtime protection
== Malwarbytes as a backup for infections that get through
== Zone-alarm free as a firewall, initially you'll get a prompt for all your common applications as it needs to learn what to allow through

But most indefinitely think b4 you click, as no anti-virus can save you if you wonder into the lions lair.

PS If you understand hijakthis then that's good for a little peace of mind when your not sure if you are infected
VirusTotal site http://www.virustotal.com/ to check suspicious files

There is not one AV that is Perfect, Mate, each has their Problems.

I work on a lot of Computers for disadvantaged people that have little money, so use Free Programs where I can, as a contributation towards them. Like here, I don't get Paid for my time, I just do it for the satisfaction of helping those less fortunate than me.

What I mainly use are as following, but not all are just AV? I have found that a Blend of different Programs lead to few call backs.

AntiVirus installed, used and upgraded daily, is AVG Free, now 9.0. Link here. http://free.avg.com/us-en/download?prd=afg

Go for the one on the left.

AntiVirus used as a Back up each Month Online, just to be sure is Kapersky Online Scanner 7.0 Link here. http://www.kaspersky.com/kos/english/langu...176479253112345


AntiMalware installed, updated when used, MalwareBytes Anti Malware. Link here. http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

AntiMalware installed, updated weekly, also has Tea Timer that advises you if something is trying to change your Registry, SpyBot S&D. You can Donate to them if you are Happy. Link here. http://www.safer-networking.org/en/home/index.html

General Watchdog. Sits quitely in the Background and monitors your Machine's various parts of it's System, correcting those it finds after clearing it with you. I must add that the Defagment feature is really unreal, HDD is always Perfect.Many other Utilities available. Advanced System Care Free. Link here. http://download.cnet.com/Advanced-SystemCa...4-11043531.html

All of the above are Free and work really well. They save me so many call backs. There are other Programs much more better techniqually, but my Clients would rather me take care of any Problems that arise.

:thumbsup:

I recommend AVG antivirus because i have used it for years and i have no problems with my system. My computer has been protected and is still protected. Beware of fake copy of the software.
