    What anti-virus program do you use?

    I use Avida Antivirus. I never encountered problems using it. Also available in mobile. I always make sure it is updated to make the best out of it.

    I have and use an updated 2018 Avast Free Antivirus on my laptop. I have had this antivirus for a year now and so far so good. I haven't experienced any virus or malware since day 1. The only thing that I don't like in it is it keeps on asking me if I want to upgrade to the premium version even if I don't want to, and there is no way to turn that off.

    I deleted the McAfee that comes pre-installed in this system since it hogs the resources on my computer.

    I'm actually not using any anti-virus, because it only makes my computer slow, I just reformat it every time it feels slow. Tho I used Avast anti-virus before.

    I have been using various free antivirus software for both my desktop and mobiles for some years. however, I started using Mcafee antivirus which is a paid antivirus software when I purchased my new laptop. This software is taking care of all my devices and I think I am reasonably satisfied with the performance

I've used Mcafee and Kaspersky before. I hate both I find them too intrusive. Mcafee keeps appearing every few minutes on your screen. This is the major advantage of Avast. It runs purely in the background. Its really hard to know that you have it installed, unless malware attacks your computer. I also am not a big fan of Kaspersky. I find it too expensive and there is no diffrence between it and other anti-virus programmes. I also have heard of many stories of them automatically removing money from your account without your authorization.
    I recently switched to AVAST. Its more pc friendly and has easy tools to get over your virus problems. I use AVAST to clean up my flash disks and it does its job pretty well.

    That's true. It's important to keep our anti-virus software up to date. That's how it prevents even potential new attacks from affecting our computers.

    I think so too. They're great at keeping our computers safe from malware. That's why they're installed in our PC. I'm sure they'll continue to defend our systems properly.

    For 2 years I use avg antivirus and it was working smoothly until one day that I couldn't connect to the internet any longer, and on further research I discovered that such issue might be as a result of the antivirus that I was using. So, I had to uninstall the antivirus and to my surprise my internet started working again. I couldn't say for sure if it was the antivirus that was issue or it was another attack but when removing this type of antivirus made my internet connection worked well on my computer system. I'm thinking of getting it back, if everything is fine with it now.

    I'm using AVG anti virus. It's worked well for me so far. It's capable of preventing malware and eliminating security risks on computer.
