I use AVG anti virus 6 which is really impressive. It takes up a minute amount of system resources and just run silently in the background. It detects viruses in files before they are even opened and tells you exactly where they are. Also, it checks for viruses silent on the bootup process and delete the virus before windows has fully loaded. I think its quite cool and I av been usin' it for some time now.

as you can see dwd. its all about personal preference.

I think I will give up norton for avg.

I use norton to run in my computer background

But when i get people's computer that already has viruses

I use kaspersky lab virus removal tools. it take less than a minute and restore your regular registry setting to help rid you of the viruses

Trend Micro PC-Cillin is by far the best. I have used all of them and PC-Cillin is the fastest, and gets everything.
