Tell me some good recommendations.


Note: I currently have Microsoft Security Essentials.
AVG is the absolute worst. I hate it more then MSE. Please only use avast. It's what I use and it's amazing.

I use the free version of avast. Works ok for me. I have been told that AVG uses more resources of your PC than Avast. Never really looked into it though. Here is a link to PC mag that has an article about free AV. May help you in deciding which one to use.

Like I said, I have no personal documents, so it's for them to hack/virus me theirs nothing that would bother me, I use the internet to help here and to read dailmail and watch liveleak, no personal details are held on my computer.

Anything I lose has been backup anway.

Btw , it's been a good 4years since I last had any virus program, since then I haven't and never had a problem, its what you click and download, because I've used a computer for over 10years I know what's what.
