    Hi Dena

    Try Avast:

    avast! - Download antivirus software for spyware and virus protection

    They have a free version that only requires an annual registration to get the software key.

    Another one (that also works on Windows servers as well as workstations) is ClamWin:

    Free Antivirus for Windows - Open source GPL virus scanner

    AVG is still free. They also have a paid upgrade, but the basic level is still no cost.

    NOooooo Not Avg... Get Avira..

    The charts on download.com say a lot for Avira, and I praise it like I do life.

    I'm currently using AVIRA and I've to say that it's a "great WARRIOR" in defeating trojans and viruses.

    Free antivirus - Avira AntiVir

    I used to use AVG, but once I switched to Avast I never looked back.

    AVG is still free. It is good for marketing and brand awarness just like iTunes. Everyone got the software now I think..

    They keep moving stuff around on their page to make getting the free version difficult. You have to invest some time in finding the right link, but it's still free.

    We run the free Avira on one system and paid Norton on another. I don't really see that Norton is all that much better than Avira, if it is anyy better at all.

    Thank you all.
    I could not, for the life of me find the free link. I only saw 2 different price options!

    Now I have to decide which one to go with..... You Avira guys are making it sound quite attractive!
    Do I have to uninstall the version of AVG before installing something else or does it not really matter since it's not working anyway?

    Thanks!

    I actually have a paid version of Norton but I stopped using it years ago because it prevented me from ftp'ing. Drove me completely nuts.

    If you are running a business, and have a lot of information (critical or not), passwords, etc. you should certainly buy an anti-virus.
