The computer I just purchased didn't come with any anitvirus software but it had like a trial version of McAfee.September 18, 2010 at 3:44 am #33024
Hi there**Norton is not good...It was meant to improve by not hogging your computer resources but I do not think it has. **Mcfee is OK and you can just upgrade the version you have and pay for protection.**AVG is free and there are others that are free also...but they are not that good and now start to nag you just like the trial of Mcfee you have....I HATE NAGGING PROGRAMSWhat do I use after all this time.....??I have used them all...even Norton because it was meant to be the best!! I actually use Avast...It is the best and you can get a free trial which is also great...but only goes for 6 months. Here is a review of virus programs I have on Tips4pc ==>> virus removal softwareIf you decide to go with another antivirus software program besides Mcfee then you will need to remove it...Windows XP 1. Go to the start menu, choose control panel2. Click on classic view.3. Then choose the Add or remove programs icon. 4. Choose Mcfee from the list and remove it.Windows Vista and Windows SevenDo the same as above but the icon in control panel is called Programs and FeaturesJune 18, 2011 at 12:50 am #33025
Amongst the free antivirus softwares I would recommend AVG. But nothing to beat ESET Smart Security. Its very light on the system.August 25, 2011 at 7:36 am #33026

I'm with the above Norton is good but far tooooo much of a resources hogger and wouldn't have it even if was free. I used most in my time Kaspersky is a good one and used it for a while but since moved on to AVG Internet Security 2012 after using the 2011 one for a while and i'm imprested by it. Anti virus software is very much like cars … each to their own. Also it depends if you want to pay for it or obtain keys from elsewhere. If your going to go for the free ones then my opinion is you won't go far wrong with AVG.January 8, 2012 at 2:06 pm #33028
I am using AviraFebruary 10, 2012 at 12:17 pm #33029
I use Kaspersky now. I used Avast as well, Avast is also good.
