I've been using AVG free for a while now, it used to be ok but doesn't seem to be picking anything up now even though I keep it updated. can anyone recommend another kind of free softwear, I'm sure someone mentioned one recently but can't seem to find it. Thanks

I use Comodo, seems fine to me. Also got one called Bit Defender, can run
it from the disc and scan the HD without booting windows up. Was very
handy for clearing a worm that was blocking the anti-virus from updating.

Binned AVG after recent versions got bloated and slow. Had Avast and thought it was generally great but crashed MS Outlook (common problem it seems). Got the free MS one now, light fast and very unobtrusive.

I would have Win updates on - lots of security updates. But ignore the optional device drivers etc - known for sometimes causing bother.
