    Avast is pretty great, I use it. It gets turned off when downloading warez 'n samples, and turned back on after installation. No problems with it so far.
    On Audioz though, you don't really ever need any antivirus running.
    Other sites however...that's a different story.

    I'm using McAfee I think it is good for Mac & PC.
    Microsoft Security Essentials is good for windows 7 its light and quiet.

    Free : Comodo Security with ONLY antivirus and firewall enabled at install (advanced options).
    Zero troubles on more than 20 computers.

    Malwarebytes free (not 30 days demo) check from time to time...but it found nothing with Comodo ;)

    hello, all antivirus program seekers,

    there exist more free programs still, called clam, clamwin, also clamsecure, here. :yes:

    when it does not run in the tray, it does not consume any cycles from your valued processor, then for scanning something, you have to start the main program. :yes:

    daily database updates are there, downloadable from the program, manually or automatically, making this into one of the most convenient solutions. :yes:

    wish all the best for all of us, wish even more for the makers of such good free tools... :bow:

    im another avast user,
    very easy to turn it off for 10 mins when installing keygens.
    avast also has boot sector scanning options, very handy.
    i also use superantispyware free edition and ccleaner.

    none with malwarebytes, various addons to block ads, ghostery, noscript, turn flash and java script off

    know the sources of what you download, test keygens and installer in sandboxie or virtual machine with winddows 7 :)

    no antivirus for 3 years now, not infected for 4 years.

    They're on version 8.0.312.0 currently. But yes I find it to be the best. I have used it on one of my computers ever since version 3 many years ago without ever having a problem.

    Best AntiVirus > LINUX. Works great for the internet. Not for your DAW.
    Cost Free. Problems none.
    Should have added Linux Mint distro.

    How user friendly is it to someone who has never had a single successfull installation of Ubuntu?



    cinnamon
    MATE
    KDE
    Xfce

    I'm confused as to which one to download. ??

    That's a great start lol


    hidipi screen? gawd now I'm completely lost.


    Linux Mint 17.2 is a long term support release which will be supported until 2019 . I think it's going to take me until 2019 to learn how to install it.:dunno:
