    I've been using avast (not advast) and it picks up better than Norton, and it's free. I learned about it when buying new machine, wanted to pay for new norton but the guys suggeted it and instaled. maybe because I got latest computer with few extras. Ever since I instaled avast several times on friends' pcs or linux, it's really great: http://www.avast.com/

    Avast is good and reliable. I'm working with it for over a year. Initially I got the recomandation for Avast from Anti virus expert ( was a team leared at another anti virus company ).

    AVG is better than anything else. If you want to pay, go for Kaspersky.

    Norton thinks that PC is built ONLY for the AntiVirus/Internet Security or SystemWorks. Eats up ALL memory your system has.

    If you're on 128 MB, 100 MB is gone!

    and if you're on 1024 MB
    850+ MB is still used by Norton.

    I use this, and I have used this since 2001. I have never had a virus it couldn't lick. I have saved many a machine with it.

    All Hail AntiVir!
