    Another vote here for either avast or avg, I like the scan avg does on USB sticks etc each time they are plugged in

    Hi Stevo

     

    I have gone through cnet. And then use the search bar, they also have heaps of other useful tools on there,

    Avast. Have been using it for years. Combined with a good firewall it's all you need.

     

    The best protection against viruses is to run Apple, Ubuntu or Linux.

    Now this is a different kettle of fish. You will need to check with your bank as to any preferred AV they would like you to use.

    I had Trend Titanium thrown in (with 3 licences) on a purchase recently,my bank loves that AV, but have to start paying a sub next year.

     

    Plus wot Leigh said.........

    If the bank siggests something it's because they are being paid to promote it.

     

    The security is on your PC, and how info leaves it.

     

    I am not stirring, but since when did you become a PC expert? You have often said you know little about such things!

    No Probs,just sharing my experiences.

    I did ask my bank which AV is ok by them,they furnished me with a list.

    Still best to check with your bank I reckon.

    I will never ask a bank about anything except financial advice.

     

    Would you ask Microsoft/Apple/Dell (or change to your computer manufacturer) what bank they suggest you use?

    Strange ??? to ask a bank...agreed!!

    Due diligence on my part.

    If anything did go wrong at least you have discussed this with your bank and it is on record.

    A friend of mine did this,still had a prob but the bank refunded due to him asking them.
