    I ditched AVG on Monday after it let a Trojan through – took me 3 hours to manually delete it & get everything back to normal Avast & Malwarebytes were the only 2 that picked it up on a safemode scan.

    Another vote for Avast although I have yet to work out how to schedule a scan!

    Personally, I’d be using paid-for AV to ensure you’re fully protected. On that front, my vote goes to Eset NOD32. I don’t trust free AV. plenty of folk I’ve seen using free stuff have had problems with the odd sec threat, trojan etc.

    For the record, I’m a freelance IT consultant and so see a lot of machines in different situations, with varying av on them.

    I’d say quite the opposite. The people with loads of viruses who’s computers I’ve seen, inevitably have some version of Norton or something, where the subscription has run out. They say ‘it came with anti-virus’, but don’t realise that you have to pay to update the darned thing.

    Avast seems to be terribly quick to update when new things come out, compared to the other ones too.
