    Well, to sum it up, we all have our favorite AV. Try one
    to see if you like it, if not, try another one. Good luck. I get all my downloads from here

    There are many antivirus software available offering complete PC security. Some of them are Norton, Kaspersky, Immunet Plus Avira, Avast, Bitdefender and many other providing demo and paid version of the tool. It totally depends upon your PC security need to decide which antivirus you should use and which will be best for your computer. Although above written names are some of the names you can trust.

    Norton is good but I prefer Microsoft essential for my windows.

    Avast is the best free anti virus.

    If I understand you correctly, you shouldn't be using two AV's. ONLY one.

    Well, if you are using two AV's, you need to get rid of one. I'm sure everybody here will say the same.

    I use the free version of it & no problems. I don't see a reason to pay for security programs when free does a very good job. :)

    There's usually a couple of years between "Transformer" movies, and yet I always rent the DVDs.

    But then again, "The Transformers", are a whole lot more interesting than this protracted E-pinion fest. >>>>(y)(n):confused:

    Well in that case, just put a "check" in the box provided by your eMail client, and then hit the "trashcan" icon. Simple as that.

    Besides, if you post to the thread after you, "unwatch it", it resets and you start getting notices again.

    It's probably some sort of metaphor for learning to keep your mouth shut....:p
