Anti-virus - what's best without costing the earth

Norton have kindly informed me that NAV2000 subscription no longer supported, so it's at least £30 for NAV2005. Any advice to avoid lining Symantec's pockets or suggestions of a AV program that doen't mean you get ripped off after a few years?

I use AVG free click here
alot of the forum members recommend it.

Hi, download AVG7 (Free) very good, if not the best. Just type in AVG in the address line.

I have been running a free version of AntiVir since I installed SP2. Spot on, no probs and free updates, several times a day if you want.
Just go to and grab a copy, if it works with XP Pro then it can't be bad!

AVG7 gets my vote.

PS. Beautiful plumage!

Thanks for the advice - will try one or both of these. Any problems running either with Zone alarm? (The free version)

No Problems with ZA.

OK, thanks for all the info, will be glad to be free of the rip off merchants. Don't mind paying for anything, but being ripped off sticks in the throat.
