    New laptop running Vista Home Basic came bundled with trial version of MacAfee. Was not to happy with it. Seemed intrusive and to be a resource hog. The trial period expired today. Uninstalled it and am now running Avast. Seems to be working good and computer seems to be running faster. Anyone have any opinions on Avast (on Vista or other OS) that they wish to share?

    i recommend avast to all my contacts as a good free easy to use anti-virus

    You will find another very good antivirus is nod32 and gets lots of recommendations here - but its not free.

    another free program is AVG - but I have found that my friends and family (who no nothing and do not want to know anything about PC's ) have trouble with the upgrade process and often install the full version.... But that may have changed these days...
