    May I,

    Photoshop is considered by most as the best professional grahics/photo editing programme around (it is, the industry standard anyway), while Paint is a bundled grahics utility that will get a few limited jobs done if you can't be bothered firing up a real editing programme.

    Feel free to +/- to that Met's

    Ok, thanks.

    Yeah OK, AVG is still a good free AV. I used for a year. But Avast is better.
    I gave up on AVG at home and went to Avast because I was sick of the AVG auto update program I found the only way to gaurantee that the auto update would work was to leave the PC on 24/7. I found that even with the PC on at the schedualed update time it still dosn't always update. No such problems with Avast. As far as catching viri goes. I suspect that the're much the same..

    I was getting sick of AVG locking up when it autoupdated so I changed to Avast. Didn't like it as it looked more useful as a MP3 player rather than a reliable antivirus solution. However it did pick up a certain piece of malware AVG didn't find

    I've changed to NOD32 now. Excellent proggy.

    I have works entire wider area network set to cascade update with NOD32. Any of the PCs on our system will be at absolute max 2 hours behind any update released from NOD32. Our international data traffic bill for that.. 1x(however big the update is).
