    Free Antivirus?

    I'm cleaning up an old computer to give to a friend who can't afford to buy one herself. I can't without good conscious give it to her without an antivirus program. As free antivirus programs go, is AVG pretty much still the best one? Is there something else out there now that I should consider instead?

    If you search here for AVG and Avast you can find quite a bit of commentary on the two.

    You forgot AntiVir from your list <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    A Google for "free antivirus review" will get you more formal reviews of these (& other) products, eg Review: Free Antivirus Software. The review results vary, but you can get a feel for each product as you check the comparisons.
