Anyone know of some good antivirus/security freeware that is comparable or better than Nortons, Symantec etc?

AVG comes highly recommended.  I've used it in the past (I have an anti virus that is included with my internet pack so don't use it anymore).

Back in my Windows days, I used AVG as well. Never had any problems with, never had any viruses either.  :th_pchmmm:

AVG used to be the best but it's got pretty bloated over the last few years.  The good news is the makers of ClamAV are now making a freeware windows version called ClamWin.  Very small footprint and works like a charm.    :th_student-smilie:
