    My parents recently had their computer worked on by the guy who does the updates on my Moms computer at her work. He said he never uses the above for that reason. So when he fixed theirs he uploaded AVG Anti-Virus Free Addition. Hey if a computer geek says its good, then I'd go with it. They have had good luck with it and I just recently put it on my laptop. No problems yet.

    I use both McAfree VirusScan (I think that's what it's called) and Webroot Spy Sweeper on my desktop, and AVG free edition and Webroot Spy Sweeper on my laptop. Happy with 'em all - although I pay subscription fees for the McAfree and Webroot programs.

    Jill, your choices are good. McAfee Antivirus is what we use for our techie office. AVG is excellent for home users and it's free! Counterspy is one of the best spyware software. Zone Alarm is good but can cause problems if you do not know what security level to setup and sometimes it will lock up your browser and require rebooting.

    I have computers (x3) at home and also 2 at the office, (yes a total of 5). I have AVG virus protection on all of them. The free version on the ones at the house & the business version on the office ones. Also, on the office computers we run webroot spy sweeper. The webroot get the adware stuff off & helps the AVG. If you have any questions about virus, computers etc contract Greg at Image Computers 850-622-3284. The guys at Image Computers are GREAT!
