Which Anti-Virus?

Discussion in 'Computing' started by Mike & Pam Gellert, Jul 3, 2006.

  1. Hi all, I have been using eTrust Vet Anti-virus for some years now, a paid
    for registered program, of which I have been very happy with.
    A few months ago I downloaded A.G.V Free Anti-virus and have been quite
    impressed.
    Question ? My Vet renewal is coming up, should I be happy with the free
    version as a stand alone ? or would I get better protection with a paid for
    program, or could I keep them both and slow the machine down a little ?
    Cheers to all.....Mike

    why put your computer in danger in the first place?
    if you keep it safe then you don't any real protection.
    you wouldn't want to go to Sydney if you knew how unsafe it is. so why risk
    you putie? keep your door locked and you'll be fine.

    Yes, worked fine here for years now.
    I havent seen any evidence of that.
    They dont all coexist very well.

    And ignore comments by the Wanker/Watcher, he's never had a clue.

    g'day mike & pam,

    vet is very good the only reason i went away from e-trust is that they
    neeed one to have a credit card to pay.

    avg is also very good and it's free, and another is avaste.

    unless you realy want a change stick with vet.



    snipped
    With peace and brightest of blessings,

    len
