    Doors11, I've been using AVG Free. Have been quite stisfied with the results. However, on occasion it has had problems updating at the time I had selected. I just went and downladed at a later time and all worked well.

    Hope this helps

    Hi doors11

    The free antivirus apps don't have ad-junk, but the antispyware programs have a whole host of aggressive advertisers among them, and some actually do include spyware and give you problems...here is a site that explains this pretty well:

    http://www.spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti-spyware.htm

    Posting this for you, because you will no doubt be seeing some of these in popup ads, around the Net...you need to educate all users of the computer about what NOT to use, as well as what ones are good.
