Installed it
Scanned all of my computer thinking after a year AVG may have missed a virus or two
It detected nothing
Un-installed it

Now this program made me trust AVG even more. Probaly will buy it when it goes un-free in January. And AVG scans WAY faster than this scanner and AVG doesnt bog down the PC as much as AVG.

While I was over my friends place he was scanning his system with kaspersky. He's always had AVG on his system and he picked up 3 trojans at the end. Saw it with my own 2 little beady red eyes.

Whatever works I guess. I have never gotten a trojan and only had 2 viruses over the past year. Kapersky didnt detect a thing with me, maybe I'm just not getting many viruses.

Sure, if you're careful and dont go to crazy sites and download crazy things, you wont get viruses. Some people are not very careful and have zillions.

I use Avast these days. After trying what seems like millions of anti virus progs(both free and pay) I have settled with this one. Works great and the only virus soft that has taken up less resourses seems to be Symantic Corperate.

I currently use the firewall that came with pc-cillin since I its extremely easy to customise and runs with my virus scanner so limited resources. Otherwise the windows XP Firewall is honestly all you'll really need. All firewalls do the same thing.
