So, for awhile now I've been using an Antivirus program called Comodo on my desktop, and it works pretty great.

...But apparently it's not working on my lap top. I've been getting a couple different errors, and looking through their bug-fixing forums, nothing that they've suggested has helped me.

So... anybody else have an awesome, free antivirus they can recommend?

I've tried a few out in my time, and AVG seems to be my favourite. :seraismile: It hasn't screwed me over yet!! XD

But the best antivirus is common sense. :vikonsmile: I mean, it's important to have an antivirus installed, of course, just don't go downloading 2kB movies and stuff. ;D

Tumbles: AVG is Avast, right? Cuz I think I've used both Avast and Microsoft Security Essentials before, but the people at the computer place uninstalled them or something and put Comodo on :/ I remember not liking Avast, though, cuz I could never figure out how to navigate it.

AVG ain't Avast. Avast is one of Czech security companies AVG is American.

I personally have Linux, but on windows is ESET NOD it's paid but IMHO best antivirus on market.

Avast is a Czech thing? Really? Cuz I thought I had used it before...

Anyways, I downloaded Microsoft Security Essentials last night.

Yeah actually Czech internet security companies are big players on the market.

Avast, AVG, Trustport, are Czech companies. ESET is a Slovakian company.

I only tried it because the tech guy at my uni told me it was the best. :seraismile: Before that I was using Kaspersky.

im using avg atm but it eats up a lot of ram. if you're willing to pay, NOD is a fine choice. it does everything quietly you wont even notice its there

yea thats because AVG is too sensitive that they reject a lot of files that isnt a threat. well at least they make an effort to fix things, thats always good to know
