I just read your reply in praise of AVG. Here you mention getting rid of the hidden keys and files in the Registry when you un-installed McAfee. Sounds like there is more to it that just using the add and remove program or the un-install for the McAfee program. Would you give me some pointers on what to look for and delete because after reading your post, I am not confident that everything was removed the way I went at it. Thank you, longlashes

Definitely AVG. It is less intrustive to your system than McAfee and Norton, and contains no fix-it-all-utilities that can mess up your computer. The latest virus update on my McAfee caused a total crash on my computer. I couldn't even boot. They had a corrupt file in the update download. After many problems over the years with McAfee, that was the end of them for me. Then, of course, is the huge task of uninstalling all of the hidden keys and files in the registry. McAfee is a no no for me. AVG is a nice simple program, and, of course, free. Good luck.

Hi, Go with the AVG Richard recommended. It's great. I used to have McAFEE till they suggested AVG to me here. With McAfee you had to be a rocket scientist to ever decipher and wade through their web site or any techinical help and I paid for it besides. Not anymore....

Anon, Yes there are several. Here is the one I use. www.grisoft.com/
It is completely free and does a good job. It is called AVG and you can download it at the above site.
