    Re: Antivirus Software Suggestions?

    Welcome to the forum, Lizzie!

    I use Panda Platinum Internet Security. I've tried all of the Big Three in anti-virus software (Norton, McAfee and Panda), and of those three, I think Panda is the best. It isn't perfect though. I've found that if you don't configure it correctly, it can block applications that you want to have access to the internet; for example, my FTP client. Also, I don't know what happens but every once in a while I'll have to go reset it so that all the computers on our home network can share files with each other. Panda will block that unless you configure it correctly.

    That said, one of the very big positives of Panda, and the biggest reason I use it, is that if you configure it correctly, it will automatically download any new signatures automatically any time of the day that there are new signatures to download. That's assuming of course that you have cable internet, since you're really always on the internet when your PC is on. Oh, and it has a pretty good user interface so the learning curve isn't too steep.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi,

    If you want a free solution, AVG Antivirus is an option you could try.

    I also use Norton. Every time it expires I just delete it and download a trial version again. I never had a problem with mine. Did you have a problem with it?

    Re: Antivirus Software Suggestions?

    I would recommend Avast antivirus. I have been using it for a decade now and they are very protective and keeps my desktop clean from any junk and unwanted files.
