Yeah, that's what I'm saying. AVG has frequent updates as far as I've seen so they update their virus definitions a lot..

If you want a free one avast is probly the best. Their detection rates and romoval success is outstanding(Better than norton). Avg is ok at detecting a virus but if its anything bad it cant do anything with it. If you want a pay one then I would get McAfee.
