Thanks Everyone for your replies,

One thing I have noticed by posting this is, that everyone has a different idea. The second thing is that on one mentioned you can buy all of this software at www.pricegrabber.com for a fraction of the retail cost. I use this search site to find all kinds of products. I just bought a McAfee Anti Virus Plus 2011 for around $15.00....,at McAfee site ,the same software is $39.95, Walmart $30.00..

Like I said, I use this site for everything

Hope this helps, Brian

MERRY CHRISTMAS !!!!

There is also A Squared virus software. I used to have it on my computer but forgot to reload when I had pooter problems a while back. It has a free version & it works pretty good too. I could run AVG, then run A Squared, & kill things that AVG missed.

Glad I could make someone laugh today :D

I found the image I was looking for earlier:


You got me too. :rofl2: and I sure needed it.
I did't think to mention the no protection with good habits route. I got the netbook for fathers day, to keep me from tracking in and out from the barn to look up info for whatever I'm tinkering with, and touching her printer with dirty hands lol. We already had our 3 install limit, so nothing got put on it. We've actualy used it a lot more than we expected, and so far it's been fine.

I use Ubuntu linux, it is free to download and use. I do not have to have any anti-virus protection. Linux and Unix OSs does not need any anti-virus protection, because how it set the security on the PC/Laptop. There are some Linux software that does anti-virus, like ClamAV some use it, most don't.
Most of the Web servers for the network we all use are Linux and Unix OSs. Less then 30% of them use Windows.

I've found they really change year by year. For a while I was a die-hard Norton fan. Then they started to really get bloated and hog resources. I then found Kaspersky to be a lean program. I've since switched back to Norton after reading a lot of reviews that they have fixed their bloat, and so far no problems. Right around subscription renewal time, I will read different writeups (like PC World) about the current years. They usually talk about speed issues, how well it stops virii and malware, etc. And I never pay the subscription renewal fee. I've found if I wait it out, it will be at a store (Staples, Office Max, etc) running a special. If you can wait until around tax time, or back to school time, they usually all offer some promotions. They usually end up being cheaper than the subscription rates.

I use Kaspersky and I'm pretty happy with it. It does tend to block a few motorcycle accessory sites I want to go on... I guess it doen't like leather!?!

MS Security Essentials for me!

I have had 5 computers using it for over a year without any problems.

I will never pay for security again, and if you think about it, Microsoft has a good reason to give away quality security control.

Well, I thought I would try the Microsoft Security Essentials. Downloaded it yesterday, had a heck of a time uninstalling the AVG. Anyway, I have a lot less processes running and so far things are smoother and faster. So far, so good. Also got the new IE 8, that seems to work better also.
