  1. Hey guys, recently my AVG ran out and I wanted to know if there were any good anti-virus software that is free. Soon I should be able to pay for it but for now I would just rather have a nice simple one. Any that you guys could recommend? That'd be great.

    Thanks,

    -Jay.

    I like antivira but once in a while you gotta deal with advertisements

  4. What sort of ads? I mean like do they pop up? Or just on the software?

    Avast has 30 days on it, then you have nothing.

    Just like something popups in the bottom right corner it's small and its advertising the full version of the product. You can just close it right out

    [MENTION=2193]NinjaHippyFish[/MENTION] Avast! Is a fantastic Antivirus and great combination to use with Malwarebytes

  8. Microsoft Security Essentials and MalwareBytes works just fine. MSE is actually one of the better ones as well. Comes pre-installed as Windows Defender on most Windows copies now.

  12. Assuming you are on windows I would go with Microsoft Security Essentials.

    Heres your best working combination to be honest... Avast and Malware Bytes together.

    Theres hardly anything you will not get rid of or even get in the first place with both of those installed.
