      A bargain, but if you've got a Barclays current account, you can get a Kaspersky licence for three computers absolutely free

      So, is that the next 5 years anti-virus subs sorted, or are you going to flog them on ebay and open a barclays online account with all the profit?

      Same here ! Eset is one of the few (if not the only) AV programme which uses pre-compiled code, which reduces the loading on your computer's CPU. The difference with Eset is noticeable, especially on slower computers.

      I've been happy with AVG for many years now - despite a major glitch with one of their updates a year or two back. I also use the cloud based Immunet 3.0 which you can use in conjunction with other AV's without any clashes and consequential slow downs.
