      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."
      Avast
      Avira
      AVG
      Other free
      McAfee
      I use paid for AV

      You've included MacAfee in your free list?

      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
      Comodo firewall
