Just a reminder....Anyone using 6.0 version of the software will be S.O.L. at the end of January.

They are still offering a free version 7.xx on their website at this time. Download went smoothly and it's doing its thing just fine.

I switched to AVG from Norton a while back........... good stuff, it managed to pick up some trojans that Norton didn't. Plus, it's less hungry on resources too. :)

Some others that I like are NOD32 and Avast

I switched over some customer rigs to the ver 7 , it's easier to set up than the previous versions , even detected one virus that version 6 did not report .

avast seems more power-hungry and has a larger footprint. Running AVG7 here on most of the systems (and some anti-spyware stuff).

I downloaded and installed AVG v7 for the first time the other day. Seems to be working great. My free one year with Norton was about to expire next month. Glad I saw someone mention AVG here. It picked up one trojan (dialer) that Norton didnt. 8O

Any machine that shows up here with a virus infection either has:
1) no virusscanner installed
2) norton anti-virus 200x installed

so not really surprised there.

You may want to install and run
