What free antivirus program do you like?

I just downloaded Avast for free for our bedroom computer. We had McAfee on the 2nd living room computer, but it took up too much ram and made log on slower. What antivirus software do you use??? I also have spybot on the 2nd computer which was free.

  • I have McAfee, but AVG Free is the best free antivirus that I've heard about. You can download it at Everyone I know swears by that one.

  • AVG Free is awesome. I just downloaded it last week. My friend has used AVG Free for years and has never had a problem. Just go to and make sure you click on the free version.

  • I hate AVG, someone installed it on my office computer before I got there. Every morning at random times of the day it decides to high jack my computer to update itself, usually when I am in the middle of dealing with a customer on the phone. I prefer McAfee.
