Can you guys reccommend a good antivirus program that’s free and that wont slow down my computer a whole lot. I used to have avg pro, but it expired and I dont want to have to buy a renewal version. Thanks!

There’s no such thing as a free FULL anti-virus protection program. You can get a free trail but not a full program.

Common Sense 2009. Best Anti-virus I have ever used. You can even use it with another AV program installed and it requires absolutely no system resources. If you can’t seem to find a good copy of Common Sense 2009 edition, try Kaspersky.

Kaspersky 6.0 or any of it latest version … or else use symantec>> it will not reduce the speed of the sysytem>>

Avast anti virus


it’s Free, and uses very little resources …

You have to register within 30 days to keep and use it free, and then once a year thereafter.

It’s all I use, and love it !

Any of the 3 Freewares (Avast, Avira, or AVG) are better then many Sharewares, but I’d have to say go with Avira .. better detection then the other two and doesn’t slowdown any PC’s here … and I have two about 9 years old (not the newest fastest PC’s in other words …)

Common Scene = an often overlooked addition :P

Why don’ you give a try for MSE (Microsodft Security Essential). I’ve been using it for a month now, and it works great. It is still in beta phase, but when they release the final product, it is still for FREE.

For running slow there are many causes: Microsoft Registry Problems RAM De-Fragmenting Etc.

Clean windows registry can speed up the computer. Registry Cleaner can fix your pc errors. Over time, you install new programs, uninstalled unimportant programs, update software’s, install new devices, download files from the web, etcetera, hence embarking all records in the registry system. This is normal, but it is not wise to leave it untouched. Once in a while, you have to check and remove files that are no longer in use to maintain the speed of your PC. Clean registry make pc faster. http://tp5pro.com/WhyIsMyComputerSlow.htm
