    I've used both. I like Avast! better because it seems to protect more efficiently than AVG, but AVG seems more user friendly. Which do you use, and why? Other Anti-virus protection suggestions are also accepted. Go!

    If it's free, I don't trust it. What is the motivation for them to give it away for free?

    Nikkerz, you have 100k in the bank :)jj:) why not buy McAfee, Norton, Kasperski etc...?

    ESET Smart Security, or Bitdefender Total Security, i use both along with Malwarebytes(premium) - no complaints. Tried many others, plenty of complaints there. For free, i prefer Avast.
