i downloaded the avg free and ran a scan but when it gets to c/ windows fonts it detects music and film files and there are thousands to clear them all would mean leaving computer on all night with virus scan running to quarantine all those zip files

Also worth running adware se personal through your system, and spybot search and destroy. Also check through your control panel - add/remove programs (assume your running XP, 2000 or Vista) for any rogue items....

HTH

Agree with DCM, I use AVG and its brilliant, AND FREE

I went to an security/antivirus conference, man that was dull I must of looked well bad sat there yawning!
AVG is prob the best free one, even better than Norton and Mcafee which are both, to put it politely, crap.

We use Sophos at work, but its 'okay' in my opinion. The older versions were better, and much easier to setup.

well the new one was easy to setup/install, but I don't like the new enterprise console. I just don't get the 'policy' issues which occur. Either the AV is installed and up-to-date or it isnt... I don't care if it doesn't match a policy...

Gimme 3.1 back...lol

Yeah we get that. I think it's something to do with the way GP updates over wireless and drops connections and things, nevermind, i just ignore it until it says virus or such.

AVG all the way !
I,ve been using it for years along with ad aware(lavasoft)

These are the first two (free) programs i install for any of my pc builds.

Also worth doing a search for Hirens boot cd which is full of great stuff.

ive been told by one of the blokes that used to come into the computer shop i used to work that this is probibly the best anti virus software you can . It uses little to none in memory to run it aswell, I dont have it but i hear its cutting edge software in the virus protection area.

There is a major flaw in Kaspersky, hackers can actually get in via a back door in the program and plant viruses, not sure if they've fixed it now but i wouldn't touch it with a barge pole.

Yeah I would agree with Southwell, I had to fix one of the teachers home laptops, and it wouldn't go on the internet. Once I removed kapsersky, it was fine... stuck avg on there instead and no problems since.

Download C Cleaner for free here - http://www.ccleaner.com/

That's a really good way of cleaning up all the crap that gets left in your registry and temp files etc - it will only help!
