    Default GDG anti virus download

    Does anyone use the free anti virus downloads for you computer. I now have Norton, but it really slows my computer. It was suggested to use AVG 8.0. Do you know anything about this, or any other one available? Why pay for Norton if you can get what you need for free.

    I use AVG 8.0 free version, seems to do the job just fine. You don't get all the bells and whistles but the basics are there

    uninstall norton completely , most viruses are written to defeat norton because it is in so many computers. sweep your computer by installing windows defender(its free) and then you can either install AVG or try Avast...

    I don't know anything about computers, so keep that in mind...

    I downloaded ESET NOD32 after hearing it recommended on a computer help show on the radio. Whatever I had before was horribly slow-this is much faster.

    This response is completely inaccurate and is frankly laughable.

    If you have AVG 7.5...it should have prompted you to upgrade as 7.5 is no longer being updated.

    Well, I am sitting here using my back-up machine and that is really slow. I have been using it for about a week and a half. My primary machine is sitting here next to me corrupted with a virus, spy ware and a trojan. I loaded macafee after the fact and it can't seem to clear it. The thing appears to be self-replicating.

    When they arenít working correctly, computers pretty much suk

    So if you find something that really works let us know because after I format my hard drive and start over, I might give it a shot.
