    Hi guys . I wanna have your ideas and choices about the antivirus software you're using :) . I think the antivirus software is an important part of the system . I'm using AVG and BitDenfeder 10 (all fully updated) - is this strong enough? . But the problem is that these two softwares take alot of my computer's memory resource and sometimes they makes my pc hang out :( . Thats really terrible :( . Give me your ideas about this problem :) . Thanks .

    Definitely NOD32 as it is both Firewall and antivirus.

    NOD32 ? That's good . I used it too ... But in some case the virus can made it uneffective :(:(:(:( . That circumstance happened to me too . I have to use another Antivirus Program :(

    In our country we have an antivirus program called BKAV . It's so small and doesn't take too much of your system's resource :) . But it doesn't have the automatic update for the free version :( . Only the enterprise version has that function :) . It can treat most of the virus kind . But the only way make me used it that's because it's small and reliable :) . Just like that :) . I used AVG and BitDefender , too :)

    You can check the program here . The Home version is free :) . It has two language interface - Vietnamese and English :)

    so norton is no good? i kinda feel ripped off - i was told that it was the best out there and when i bought my new PC i bought it as an extra (something like 50 quid)

    i suppose its my own daft fault for not having a clue about computers :/
