What are the differences between buying anti-virus software and free software....besides the price?
Does one work better than the other, the ones I've looked at check all incomming data (dowloads, e-mail, etc.).
I haven't used any free virus scanners ... but Iv heard about one ... it was in one of these threads the other day ... anyway as far as retail Iv used both Nortan and Mcafee and personally Id go with Nortan, they both use about the same space and resources but Nortans got some extra bells and whistles with it.
Hey guys, thanks for the quick replies.
Still not sure what to go with. It seems alot of people don't like McAfee. Norton seems to be the most popular. Popular however is not always the best. No offences to anybody. I just like to be alittle different. I think I 'll give AVG a try.
This place is the best to find information your looking for.
I don`t under stand how anyone can spend the money for a computer and all of the toys that you can get for them and can not pay for the safety part. You can get Norton Anti-virus 2003 for $21.00 shipped to your house. That is nothing compared to what can and usually happens to your computer if you get a virus.
