    Default Which anti-virus software are you using?

    I've very sure almost all computer/internet users have anti-virus software installed in their computer, no matter paid or free version.

    Would like to see which anti-virus is the most popular (free and paid version) among people here.

    None on my Mac OS X or Linux machines, but for Windows, I use AVG anti-virus free. I tried Avira's software but it always had multiple errors trying to automatically update so I changed back to AVG.

    I don't know what others feel.
    THIS website states that the best free anti-virus software is Avast anti-virus.

    Anybody have experience with this free anti-virus software?

    the pop-ups appear when an update is done.

    Even when the Mac market share was at 12 % in the mid-1990s, there was no huge focus. 38 pieces of malware existed. Even after the iMac in 1998, there were only 42. That compares to 50,000+ for DOS/Windows then.

    There are a few trojans for Mac OS X now, but the user has to authorise them for them to work. There may be trojans, but no viruses, no matter who focuses.

    Norton Anti-Virus is probably the worst running software on any platform. Generally, any of their software is broken, causing problems with other software and crashes.

    Using Microsoft Security Essential as well. Norton is a very good anti-virus but it slows my pc boot up, must pay and its expensive to subscribe, so its rubbish!
