I really don't trust Norton, except it's the original one. Perhaps, it works for you though.

I've been using MS essentials for about 3 years now. No drawback.

Hello Members,

Anti-Virus Free from AVG is the best free antivirus software available. AVG Anti-Virus Free is a full-fledged antivirus and antispyware tool, includes an email scanner, link scanner, scheduled scanning options, automatic updates, and more. There is no need to pay for an antivirus program when the best free antivirus software in the world is just a download away. AVG Anti-Virus Free works on Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP and Windows 2000. The huge number of premium features, frequency of updating, and install-it-and-forget-it aspect of AVG's Anti-Virus Free really do make it the best of the best free antivirus programs available today.

Best Regards,
Tony Mccallum

So people can be this funny, it's like one newbie in computer village has told you some rubbish.

Norton number 1, who told you the trash.

Bit Defender is the leading security in the planet.

Re: What Is The Best Antivirus For A Computer by monkvirus(m): 11:25am On Mar 15, 2013
The problem with most of us is that we prefare free stuffs to the paid ones & @ d end of d day u call urself smaet guy. Imaging som1 using Avast free antivirus dat wuld expire 2039? & u expect full protection? Hmmm........ dat cannever happen, so therefore my broda dnt let any1 deceive u ooooooo wit any free anti virus of any kind or type, d best way to keep ur system safe is to get an original anti virus dat wuld cost u som money ( say between 4-5k or there about) . Luk 4 a reputable software dealer to purchase d stuff in hardcopy or u can go to d website of d antivirus of ur choice nd get it. Well in my personal advise i'll sugest u go for AVG Antivirus, itz very gud nd reliable.

Hello Friends,

One nasty virus could expose your financial information or stop your computer from working at all. What you need is the best antivirus software possible on your computer. Luckily, some of the best are also completely free. Many companies offer free versions of their popular antivirus programs for home users. My favorites are AVG Anti-Virus Free, avast! Free Antivirus, and MSE, but be sure to check out the whole list to find the best free antivirus for you.

Thanks and Regards,

Re Whats the Best Antivirus For a Computer.

I will kindly advise you to first of all reformat your system with an original Microsoft operating system be it OS Windows 7/Windows 8, XP or vista be it in 32bits, or 64bits Version and go on the internet and download Microsoft Security Essential i having been using this antivirus for more about 3years now it has no expiration date and it cannot be cracked or counterfeited because its directly from Microsoft Corporation itself, i will give some kudos to Norton antivirus, Avg, bit defender,avast e.t.c but you one major thing you have to realize is the will all expire after one year, because their duration is only 365days in fact they become so useless and if you ask me what's the point of paying so much for antivirus after one year of usage .

If you will take my advice log on to www.Microsoft.com and download Microsoft security essential based on your system version bits because it comes in different system version bits as earlier said after downloading the antivirus click on on the menu update to update it after updating restart your system so as to allow your system to install update from Microsoft server

After restarting your system borrow any virus infected flash drives from any of friends and see what happen the antivirus will clean any virus from flash drive instantly i bet it with you, you will always remember in your prayers when are through.

All the best.

why is it that i too know like you think dey know it all?i bought AVG 2012 from a guy since last year and its still active till now. Its to expire 2018. I used to use the paid package but i dont any more. Dis license key im using is stated clearly on AVG server that its original. Becos you cant have it doesnt mean others cant. say what you know.

said by the AVG PARTNER dat dont have NEPA light for like 2weeks now.in life people like you that are too weak to find out about new things will always find a way to discourage others.the boy who did mine showed me his own on his PC he installed it on april 5th 2008 to expire 2025.and since then no more yearly fees.so mr AVG PARTNER if you are waiting for me to be paying N5,000 every year for anti virus then you will grow old waiting.with so many VPN people can now browse for free without all dis telecom companies knowing, but people like you will say its not possible.dis a snap shot of my AVG FULL VERSION TO EXPIRE 2018!!!!

Re: What Is The Best Antivirus For A Computer by elvymoore: 8:46am On May 20, 2013
@googlepikin.i will keep sayin it, AVG doesnt ve any product that can start nw and end in 2018.we also dont have keys for 145,000 users.the hacked key(8MEH-RGHD3-XXXXX-SXPWA-PDNML-9EMBR-ACED) which u re using and selling is illegal and is not in AVG database.u dnt even need to hide it bc we are clamping down on keys like that.so no need to hide.

@all.dont use hacked keys.its not good for ur security.buy genuine and legal licenses.mind u any key or license that u didnt register and activate with ur details is fake.imagine somebody saying he has AVG key that last for six years where AVG doesnt have 6 year licenses.AVG doesnt have 145,000 user keys too, so beware.buy genuine softwares.AVG internet security original software packs(2user for 1year) doesnt cost more than 2,000 naira.

FACTS
1.if u want to verify that ur key is genuine and recognised by AVG, go to www.avg.com/registration, on the license box there input ur key,then from the response u get from the AVG server u will know ur stand.if ur license is genuine and in AVG database u will get this message "Thank you for your registration. Your AVG License/Sales Number has already been registered in our database.
If you feel that you have received this message in error, kindly contact our Customer Services".

On the otherhand, if u are using fake keys like the ones that lasts for 6years as so said,u will get this error message "You have entered an incorrect License/Sales number, please try again. If you have received your License Number in electronic format, we recommend that you use the "copy and paste" function to insert the number in the space provided.Field 'License or Sales Number' is invalid. Invalid data.
i dont need to talk too much on that.try what i said urself and dont be deceived.some hackers may be prying on u and u think u are smart.for more clarifications am available to answer ur questions.thanks
