Re: Which Free AV To Use? - Avast Paid Is Expiring

Gee then Avast free, maybe less features and control same basic stuff. So go free with what you have now.

Just wanted to thank everyone again and let you folks know that I purchased one year of Avast Pro Antivirus for one user for $23.99. I purchased it from the downloadcrew site that was posted by MarkAW above.

Thanks Rebrider See Profile for the great post. I am careful where I go and have also been online since dialup. I think that I've had one virus about 5 or 6 years ago.

The machine that I want to protect is my laptop which I do not use every day. I really only go to certain mainstream sites with it, and I know that if you have to stray, Google with WOT are your friends.

Because I do not use my laptop every day, I've been thinking of trying a free program like MSE. Avast expires in 15 days. I will post what I end up using.

I've tried all the free options and I stick with MSE (on my Win7 Ultimate 64). None of the others come close to being as resource-stingy as MSE. I honestly never know it is there unless the few times it has tagged a potential malware in something I've downloaded. As the other guy said, the best defense is being a smart user.

since you have been using "avast", i would recommend that, one way or another, you continued using it.. i think avast is a good program..
