About Free Antivirus: Thanks for Sharing!

A few days ago, I wrote a post asking opinions about free antivirus.
I´d like to thank all my fellow bloggers who shared their experiences with me.
If any of you needs a free antivirus software, here´s what they recommended me:

~ Joy-Anne uses AVG, she said "it hasn't failed me yet".

~ Rebecca uses a free version of Grisoft AVG and also Comodo Forewall and Antivirus combination.

~ Monica uses Avast.

~ Shinade also mentioned AVG but she prefers Norton.

~ Mytheory recommended NOD32, he said "it's free and also a light-weight antivirus, the performance has score 3.5 out of 5"

Before reading all comments I had to find a solution. I couldn´t afford to risk my dearest notebook health. So, while I still had the antivirus running I looked for information on Entrecard blogs.
I visited Computer Aid Blog, the author recommends a combination of tools, for example:

~ The free version of Avira AntiVir and an antispyware solution such as Windows Defender.

You can read the whole post and all recommendations here: Computer Aid - Best Antivirus & Antispyware.

Once again, thank you all for sharing your experiences with me!
Sharing is the true spirit of blogging.
See you soon :)

Wow thank s for the mention Mize'. i wasn't expecting that.

Now, I got this from The Geek Squad and also a PC specialist who came out to my home.

I too was running a anti-spyware program.

Guess what both told each time? The anti spyware was one of the biggest pieces of malware I had on my PC.

So becareful about what you choose. I like mine because it has all of the tools in one package.

Good luck and thanks for such a sweet comment!!

You're welcome! Did you eventually make a final choice? Perhaps you'd give a review. I am always looking at new software and tech stuff. :)

I've used Avira's AntiVir for nearly ten years now and have not had one single issue. It is one of my primary antivirus tools for protecting my server.

AntiVir has a free for personal use version as well. I also use that one and it is as good as the professional.
