    Anti Virus Software

    There's a whole range of Anti Virus software out there. Some good, some not so good. While others decide to pay for Anti Virus software, others opt for the popular freeware versions that are out there.

    Which Anti Virus Software do you use? I personally use AVG. AVG has been pretty good for me ever since it came out. Updates regularly, provides decent protection, is free and is low on system resources.

    What is the most popular Anti Virus Software for people here?

    We get it in New Zealand, so I'd be surprised if it's not around in Australia.

    It is around in Australia, but I couldn't mention every option in the polls. Plus I don't think it's very popular since it's a paid product, but many new PC's and Notebooks come with it pre installed. Hence my other (specify) option. You can select the 'Other' option Richard.

    AVG. Have to get something new soon, though because the free version isn't being made anymore
