    Default Free Anti-Virus Software.

    Just before I uninstall and blowout MCAfee Security that has been installed on my Dell PC since I bought it, can anyone recommend a good anti-virus software package?

    In the past, I've always used AVG Free, but some of the later versions did slowdown things a bit on my PC.

    I'm just wondering if there is anything better out there. Haven't been too happy with McAfee TBH.

    Hi
    AVG Free is ok, but to be honest, if it's free it's not going to be the best in the world.
    I use on all my machines at home, and use at work, NOD32 from ESET. (www.eset.co.uk), they offer a 30day free trial, and then the after that, it costs around £30 for the year.
    Most importantly, it doesnt slow your machine down
