    the best Anti Virus is AVG Free Edditon

    Notron and McAfee and those other guys dat make u pay for it hog up ur system

    BUt also 2 protect u use Firefox and Ccleaners and Lavasoft Ad-Aware SE and Spybot Search and Destroy

    you can find all the free versions at download.com

    All these won't hog ur system at all

    I am using the new element 7.5 version of AVG- Anti-virus, and AVG Anti- Spyware, and the free download of SpyBot, and the free download from Yahoo for spyware, and that seems to keep a pretty strong firewall. So far, so good. I heard that Norton, is very good , but I think also, more aggressive. There is a free download for the AVG anti-virus, just remember, that it does expire, and you have to start again.

    I prefer Avast!, it's 100% free and it works amazingly. It doesn't bog down the system at all, and it worked miracles for my diseased computer.

    I think that you can select a standard antivirus software. I have come across a website that gives a brief study on computer viruses and their removal. It is very useful.I recommend that you go through this study and then decide. Please visit
