Default Need a new Anti Virus

So my subscription for Notron 2007 that was updated to 2008 for free is now over and now I am searching for a replacement or renew. I was thinking of buying the full AVG for my computer because I had used the free edition on all my other computers in the house and like it, never had any problems with it. Any recommendations?

I recommend renew Norton 2008, it has very small memory footprint, control applications allow or deny access to internet and detect all rootkits than AVG do.

AV-Test GmbH tested on latest anti-virus 2008 products to find out how each performed overall. Norton 2008, Trend Micro, F-Secure and AntiVir has 7 positives.

You can get a one year license of Kaspersky for free through TrialPay. I got mine by signed up for a 14 day trial of Real's music service. I was instantly emailed my key for Kaspersky then a day later I canceled my Real Subscription. Saved $60 bucks or so. Here is a link if you want to try it.

BitDefender10 AV is now free since BD2008 came out. I would say it's better than AVG. It's no resource hog either.

I like AVG, but it always thinks EVERYTHING is a trojan. I was in the beta for a now-released game, and AVG kept saying it was a trojan, and wouldn't let me play the beta game, even though the whole reason I subscribed to Fileplanet was to be in the beta, lol.

So I uninstalled AVG and usually use Avast.
