LOL. With Avast, the "verbals" only works on my Vista computer.
I rather like it, but you can disable it in "Sounds".
It seems to automatically update at least once a day and slows the
computer for a minute as it does so.
Don't forget you also need to regularly Scan your computer, this
does not happen automatically.
I am going to attempt to start a poll to see what the latest opinions are
on the best free AV software to use with Sky Broadband.
If you want to add to the list below, reply to this thread.
"Which free anti virus software to you recommend for Sky Broadband."
I use paid for AV

I thought Sky still give it to you free for a year.
On advise on this site, when I joined a few years back,
I used the Sky disc as a coffee coaster.
McCoffee. A Vast Nescafe is better.
But, I take your point and have revised the list above
and repositioned McAfee.

Hi I am using xp home verbals seems to work ok after install looks for updates thats when verbals start good idea also like the compact tester you can put in a corner and it is out of the way. If we were Voting from 1 to 10 Avast I`d give it an 8 the comodo a 7 until I can work out the balloons.
AVG 8 the latest can be time consuming
Zone Alarm Firewall
Both free. Both do there job when you have something that works you tend not to check on it so I needed a change
Avast anti virus if you want some verbals
