Default Anti-Virus, Spam Software

Just loaded new HD and wanted to know best anti-virus software on market that is very user friendly and yet, very comprehensive. I'm using Micro Trend's trial version right now. But, I have concerns re it anti-spam feature toolbar not being compatible with my IncrediMail. Anybody got some suggestions.

I had AVG 8.0 and it wasn't bad but it didn't offer auto updates or anti-spam. I might look into the pro version, though. Thanks for tips, I really appreciate the help.

Or cough up more RAM and stack your computer. I use AVG 8.0 along with Comodo AV and I have no problems.

Thumbs up Re: Anti-Virus, Spam Software

TK MODS,

I'm willing to pay if the program is user friendly for a novice and yet covers all or most aspects of utilities available (A/V, Spam etc, all Windows e-mail programs - IncrediMail like I use.

NOD32 is the best anti-virus IMO.

AVG does provide auto updates. Heck, you can even schedule it.
