When I am using Window$ I use Avast....runs in real time and has the option of a pirate voice to tell you all is safe aboooaaarrdddd. :)

 

But I hardly use Window$ now....I use Linux....which doesn't need any form of anti-virus at all.....all safe and sound even without a pirate. :thumbsup:

Hello again

 

I've downloaded AVG 2012 but it says the trial will run out in 29 days time. I thought it was free? :confused:

Having just done a search, was quite concerned that AVG's download partner is CNET which was alleged to harbour malware in its downloads a few months back!

I would only download freeware from here:

 

http://www.softpedia.com/get/Antivirus/AVG-Free-Edition.shtml

 

or filehippo.

 

It's probably pushing for you to buy the 'paid for' version - perhaps there are naggng screens that you can't get rid of in the 'free' version?
