I need a list of trusted antivirus programs I can download for free. I prefer not to use COMODO because I recently removed it after it caused all sorts of problems. I also had to remove AVG so I would rather other trusted programs. Please help.

Many trusted members of this forum (including myself) recommend Avast. It is one of the best free AV's out there, and doesn't have the problems that plague most other free AV's. :thumbsup:

I've very partial to AVG and it's one of the ones that Kim Komando approves of as well.

I use Microsoft Security Essentials it works well and is easy to use.
I don't go to high danger sites and when I end up with something it has caught it and let me know.

I guess it's not for everybody, but I like it.

One I would like to add to the above is Avira Antivir

Usually when people ask me what to use, I recommend either Avast, Avira or MSSE. Which one is fit for you depends a bit on personal preferences.


As a side note, I am moving this topic to the appropriate forum :thumbsup:

regards, Elise
