    I will need to make a decision about renewing my present McAfee Total Protection or changing to something else.
    Anyone use, or have an opinion, about the Kasperkey Anti Virus software and how well it works or not.

    Thank you.:eek:

    what windows version do you have

    have a read through this forum and you will see a lot of free antivirus and some paid for recommended

    --------------------------------------------------------------
    i'm not an expert here - but if you look through the security forum, you will see a lot of recommendations for windows 7

    The windows 7 firewall is considered adequate and especially you are connected behind a router.
    Have a read in our "general security" forum and look for the advice from our security gurus, they are identified with a green shield next to their name

    Several excellent free antivirus programs are available.

    Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE)
    http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/security_essentials/default.aspx

    Avast
    http://www.avast.com/free-antivirus-download

    AntiVir
    http://majorgeeks.com/Avira_AntiVir_Personal_-_FREE_Antivirus_d955.html

    Two other programs to also have on the PC

    Malwarebytes
    http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php
    superantispyware
    http://www.superantispyware.com/download.html

    Pay for
    ESET nod32

    Green shields are not security gurus, they are Trusted Advisors. Malware Removal Specialists have gold shields and trainees have blue ones. These are icons beside their user names. :)
