virus protection software.
I've copied something I wrote in one of the many threads, where the same question has been asked.
''When using the word ''best''.. it will all boil down to what is best for you. There are those who feel best is, that which doesn't ''hog'' memory. There are those who feel AVG's ''price is right''. There are also those, such as I, that use McAfee and find it does the job and is ''problem free'' - my criteria. Some people feel if their AV or anti-spyware hasn't found anything - it's useless. Other's find if it detects too many things .. they must be false positives. There are those that complain about a certain AV, only to find they had ''other issue's'' going on, which caused conflicts with the software. And the list goes on.''
In the end, it's going to be your personal choice. If you're looking for other people's opinions, [url=

It's all relative. You may wish to look through the prior posts and see what aspects of AV software is important to you.. then make your choice. As you know, if you've been without protection for a couple of days.. you best get reading quickly! You certainly wouldn't want to be without it.
Just my opinion..
(As to prices, within the posts, people sometimes allude to whether or not it is free. If they haven't, after deciding on a few that you think you like, you can always put the name in Google. You'll find out quick enough how much it costs.)
