Question Anti Virus!

My Bit Defender anti virus runs out in 3 days. Should I renew it (it has been ok) or should I go for another anti virus?

I have only one problem........my tower wont take discs. If I put a disc in then it shuts the screen down completely, so it will have to be something I can download if that is possible.

Thanks

And so begins another debate about Anti Virus progs!!
I suggest the easiest, quickest and cheapest option is to download AVG free when the other one runs out.
Then get someone to sort the pc out!

There are loads of AV progs out there, some are much better than others, some are dire. I did say that it was probably the easiest, quickest and cheapest option! It also doesn't slow the pc down too much.

Firstly.....lets's evaluate AVG!



That says it all! But in your case SD, just download the POS, uninstall ButtDefender, install AVG, and then bring the system to me when you come up.

Same goes for anybody else.....if you want your systems sorted when you're here just bring them with you!

Don't let Pete near your machine - when he's sorted it you'll have to kickstart it and sit astride it while you're on-line.

It might you take crap photos every 35 mins aswell.

AVG has worked perfectly for us for the last goodness knows how long whereas Norton/Symantec totally screwed stuff up, particularly our digital camera software and Zone Alarm was completely off the wall. Good Luck as this is a minefield at the best of times!
