I'm with Ecniv....AVG is a good one and as efficient as Norton Antivirus...there are two versions of it-->the free one and the paid one .
BUt both are good the difference is that for the free one we have to download the updates and virus definitions ourselves and does not include other sevices and the paid one has some services to offer.

Or to do it the easier do the following...using Update Manager ------>go to Program, Control Center, Update Manager), where you need to just push Update now! button and AVG will perform whole update on its own.

got AVG!!!!!!

thanx all!!!!! i have uninstalled my old nortons and installed the free AVG, and it works great!! and also it updates for u automaticly if u chose that option, so thats even better, a question , i scaned my c drive and with AVG it only took 14 min, and with nortons it took almost a hour, and my pc boots up quicker now, is nortons slower at scanning or more thorough?:)

i think it is more thorough cuz when i used avg it only scanned like 10,000 files and norton scans like 50,000 files. that would explain why it scans faster.
