yes it is...been using it for a year now...nothing has got through...although, you still need an adaware programe to run alongside.

I am not a fan of NOrton so I will not comment there.  I have used the AVG anti-virus (I use the free version) and it has worked well.  Daily updates, automatic if you wish, and nothing has gotten through.  They also have a very good anti-spyware program which also has a free version, though the free version is somewhat crippled after the first 30 days.  Take a look here, http://free.grisoft.com/doc/1.  I think you'll like them.

I looked very briefly at the AVG website. Is it free? If so, what about the old adage "you get what you pay for" ?? Thanks, ken

Ken,
They do have free versions as well as more capable paid ones.  I have used many of the popular suites such as norton and others, even corporate versions when I was working.  I was not satisfied with any of the commonly available programs.  I went to one on the download sites and started experimenting.  I came upon AVG and have used it for almost two years.  So far, I haven't found anything I like better.  I normally subscribe to the "you get what you pay for..." philosophy and I've paid for plenty of malware programs but, for once, I haven't found anything I like (or trust) as much as this one.  I have no connection with the publisher or the product other than as a user and I get nothing in return for my opinion.  I've just been through what you're apparently searching for and this is what I've found.  Good luck with your search.

I have used Grisoft's free AVG Anti Virus program for several years.

Norton used to be one of the top products as a utility, but I would not want this on my computer equipment anymore as it has caused problems.

It is not easy to find the free software version of AVG if you go on their main site. To locate the free version, do a search for free +AVG or go to their free site at:

free.grisoft.com

Ken...cant really recommend any particular one..there are loads of free ones out there, such as spybot etc, that are very good..As for Nod32, comparing it against the rest, which you can do here: http://www.eset.com/products/compare-NOD32-vs-competition.php    then, the rest don't compare. I believe that NASA and the FBI use it, so thats good enough for me.....If you would like a copy...(a trial version that last for 40,000 yrs :-) then email me. It updates a few times a day....regards...scott

Good, free AV programs include...
AOL Active Virus Shield, from http://www.activevirusshield.com/

Despite it having AOL in the title, is ie fact a rebadged Kaspersky Antivirus, well known as one of the best out there... and it's free.

The open source contender is ClamWin, from http://www.clamwin.com/

Good, lightweight but no on-access file guard, yet.

For free ad/spyware removal, check
Adaware 2007, Free: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/products/ad_aware_free.php
or
Spybot S&D: http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html
