    I will mention three Anti_Virus softwares in the order of my reccomendation

    1) AVG Free Edition 6.0
    2) AntiVir Personal Edition
    3) avast!4 Home Edition

    You can try any of them. They all are good ones and provide regular updates.
    I personally use AVG 6.0

    I've recently been dabbling in some mischief that is beyond my Kung-Fu.

    AVG has really come through for me --- I'm not liking occupying my precious resources with an AV, but I tell you I feel very comfortable with the protection AVG is providing me.

    Kicked 2 viruses and 2 trojans right into oblivion!

    I could'a got the trojans myself, but this is easier:laugh:

    Sensai I believe:?:

    PE_PARITE.A also known as PINF
    I just couldn't figure out how to stop that POS:confused:
    As IExplore.exe was jibbed, the online scans were useless - just kept reinfecting other executables.

    Grissoft came through like a champ.
    Still, it took me some fancy repair/reinstall to get IE and OE back working. ie. revert to previous/reinstall.

    Later got a whiff of downloader.small -- beat that senseless in record time.

    Some other trojan was later detected, same result.


    I am totally depressed at the lag I get copying between drives and other local functions, but as I said, I do feel quite comfortable.
    Ah well, it's just going to have to become more tolerant as the software solution is certainly effective.

    still, it's going to take some getting used to

    Say, you wouldn't have a cuppa resources I could borrow, would you: peace2:

    getting used to AVG? :?:
    its the best thing for n00b's Mr. C. now never say that u will need to get used to it :p but yeah its quite understandable that a person like u who never used a software solution would require some time.
    btw AVG is not taking much of resources. isn't it? :thumb:

    When you consider the configuration of this tool-box, it does take a noticable toll on some activities.
