Re: What Antivirus Should I Get

Hi Nancy, I like AVG from www.grisoft.com. Release 6 is free or you might prefer (as I do) release 7. AVG7 has
greater functionality than 6. I use it at a PC shop to clean machines which have had their anti-virus software
compromised by malware. I've found it to be far less demanding on system resources than Norton, McAfee or most of the
other anti-virus bundles. This makes it ideal for lower powered machines but it is certainly no light weight when it
comes to anti-virus protection.
Of course, if a machine becomes infected, there may be no alternative than to employ a removal tool specially designed
for the particular infestation, such as is the case with Netsky.
But I, too, will be interested to hear what other subscibers to this list recommend.
