Wow, that anti-virus is good. No annoying pop-ups whatsoever, and it just cleaned out 2 threats in like a second. KASPERSKY, would have took like 5 minutes.. zzz And, it would've used upto half the screen. --

Thanks Hazel~

AVG is garbage nowadays. Microsoft Security Essentials is the best straight up antivirus, and it's best complimented by MalwareBytes and SUPERAntispyware.

This is not a virus, this is a dead battery.
I disagree AVG is awesome I got that and Malewarebytes and lemme tell you AVG saved my butt from rootkits and trojans and has blocked threats and what not for me.

Make of computer has nothing to do with anything concerning Viruses...

Clonetos, AVG was once a great antivirus, but that day has long since passed. It is inferior, in every single possible way, to Microsoft Security Essentials, and now actually tends to have the least significant database updates and some of the most interfering problems. This is not a matter upon which an opinion can be had, it is simple fact.

I disagree with the WSE option. Even doing a google on top 10 anti-virus for 2012...it is NEVER listed as amazing or in the top 10. If you want a quality free anti-virus then try Avast 7 free for PC.

Polls like this rarely ever include input from people who actually know what they're talking about, much like any given poll you're going to find on google. When I was shopping for a new anti-virus, the only thing I ever saw recommended, by actual technicians and people who run support boards and so forth, was MSE. After getting it, I immediately understood why, and I have not had one single problem with it.

Avast has compatibility issues with tons of random programs, and is actually quite notorious for interfering with... pretty much everything that involves an active connection to the internet. Any kind of patch server for online games, for example. There are many online games where most users have to outright disable Avast entirely to even get them to work, in fact, unless Avast has stopped being horrible in the last year or so since I heard anything but the same about it.

Yes, MSE is made for Microsoft, so it is most compatible with it. It is suppose to be used with Windows, so thats why it has so little errors. Plus, Microsoft has the money to make it as best as they can/want.

No, there isn't. They affect computers vurnable to them. Their are too many viruses to list, so they dont have a list of the Top 10, but you can find more info online about common viruses.

@Hazel-Pretty sure he did. There is basically no way you can upload a file other than an image (which is a link) to a thread. I wonder if he reported it or not ... and if he remembered how he got the virus ...

My mum's laptop once had a virus from a MacAfee update, it was in PC World for few months. It's had many viruses after that, but I can't remember the names of the site...

I don't think its the Mcafee update. I think because of the update it was able to detect the virus once hidden on your moms computer.

Let me explain, when we got the update the laptop wouldn't log on, so we took it to PC world and the person who was telling it was said: "You've got the MacAfee Virus." my mum went mad...

Well how did you update the Mcafee software? Did you do the update directly from the Mcafee or somewhere else, like a website?
