Spyware/Malware/AntiVirus Software - need a good one

Hey Yall, I am in need of Spyware/Malware/AntiVirus sofware.  I would like one that I can download from the internet that updates itself when new viruses & such come around and that I can re-new it when it's about to expire.  In the past I have gone the cd route but never seem to get the updated version until it's too late.  I need one that I can trust and is effective.  The last cd I used was Kaspersky and it has expired.

Anyone using anything like this?  If so, please leave comments including price & web address to download.


  1. I use Avast anti-virus. :)

  2. I use the same one as Mary. Avast anti-virus (the free version) and it works great.

  3. I use Microsoft Security Essentials - it's free on their website. Also, be very careful about installing any Java updates - they are easily infiltrated and can be "carriers" for the malware.

  4. I have used some of the free ones in the past and my computer died a hard death from a virus that got through. I have used Trend Micro ever since. It updates on its own, it shows me what it finds. The above is right about Java. I do install my java updates but I run another scan immediately.

  5. I use Eset. You can purchase on line, it updates automatically. It constantly scans your PC and when your 1 year is up, you can renew right online. Easy Peasey... And it costs much less than it's competitors. I have it installed on all 6 PCs in my house.

    You can find it at:


  6. Been using AVG protection for many years now, and I'd recommend this solution to you all.
