    Default Anti Virus

    Hi Team
    Can you advise the best free anti virus software that I can download. I have Norton on one computer and now have another, but dont want to use Norton as it slows everything down

    There are 3-4+ threads in here already

    AVG,Avast,NOD32

    First 2 are free (well one of their packages are). NOD isnt free.

    The best free one is avast, the best one is Eset Smart Security. (Nod 32 with firewall and anti-spyware.)
    Intel Q6600 2.4Ghz
    nVidia 8800GTX
    3GB of 667mhz ram (I know its slow)
    A Dell XPS 720 Case
    750 Watt PSU
    nForce 680i Motherboard
    Windows Vista Ultimate x86

    I agree that Avast (Home Edition), then perhaps AVG are the best freeware Anti Virus. You can download them here and maybe read the user reviews...

    Avast Home for AV and Comodo 3 for Firewall.

    Both free and not memory intensive.

    avast is definately better at picking up viruses than AVG. Yea comodo 3 or zonealarm for firewall, and as secondary backup protection, Ad-aware free is good.
