    Also, try Anti Vir 6.0 from Quality "Made in
    Germany".... And a good bulletin board for troubleshooting, info sharing,

    Free AV's
    AVG [ ] is a good AV and less memory consuming too.....better
    than many of the paidwares....No support is available for free edition. Now
    it has got smaller virus updates size too.
    AVAST Home Edition v 4.0 [] is also another good AV.[requires
    free registration no, chek on website ] and has more features than AVG .
    For dialup users or It is a install & forget type AV... detects internet
    connection automatically and Automatic updates without user
    interference,boot time scanner ,universal mail scanner, P2P softwares
    scanner, Messenger files
    scan, good support [even for free home edition ]..[chek features on website]
    Continuously updated also .. But may seem a little bit slow [ minor
    difference ] than AVG on Pc's having P3 500 mhz ,128mb ram....
    So if you are having a ram crunch , i would suggest to go for AVG., else for
    BOTH , are good AV'S security wise......But convenience wise and also
    features wise , i
    would Prefer AVAST.

    Where there's no AV in place, I generally use free online antivirus like one
