      Don't see how that was hard really.

      Don't forget that you CANNOT use AVG Free on any commercial or company PC - you MUST pay for it if it's for use at work.

        Apparently its been voted the best free AV scanner around.

        I personally use this software on all of the systems i build an i have never had any issues with viruses.

        Here's the URL i use

            Wow - wullie has servers at home?!

            Seriously though, check the link I posted above. Free AVG will not install on Server OS's and it is excluded by licence from use in a commercial environment.

                The problem with AVG 7.5 is that it slows down a Vista, If you like me who is runig Vists on a celeron 1.7Ghz. I have had lots of complains on AVG. I am presenlt looking ofr an alternative my self.

                      I'm surprised Vista will run at a reasonable speed on that processor with NO other software installed. ANY AV program is going to cripple Vista on that box.

                          Nope. I use a very old version of McAfee (4.5.1) that updates via FTP on mine.

                              And thats the point its only a trial version.

                              AVG is the best IMO.
