    AVG is free without crack and it does a fine job.

    It's free for 30 days. It's free forever if you use the FiX.

    AVG sucks, I switched from AVG to NOD32 and I'm really glad I did.

    AVG and Avast are the best.

    That's not saying much, since free AVs suck.'
    I switched to NOD32 from AVG too, as Whizz did, and I don't regret it one bit.

    AVG Free 8 (I just updated about a week ago) and the previous versions have never failed me. Also, don't try downloading a crack of AVG Pro, they're all bad and will give you a virus.

    I'd have to recommend AVG 8 Free. Works great for me.

    I've been using AVG free for a few years now with no problems. Why bother downloading another virus killer that has a crack, when the crack could have a virus in it, or the company that write the virus killer can stop you downloading updates. If you ever want a virus or want to give someone a virus, always install norton [​IMG]
