That is a little bit risky, you are asking for trouble surfing the Internet without virus software, rather like surfing the red light district without a condom, you run the risk of picking something nasty up

The reason I asked about McAffee is because I have it installed on my laptop and I fired it up today and it threw up a warning when I went to my personal website, tetraplegic living.com. Not getting warnings on any other website or using my other virus software. Tony T said he wasn't getting any problems on his version, so maybe it's just the version I am using

My ex-husband who I spent years sending to school to be a computer geek (and then he runs off with my best friend) recommends the free stuff:

AVG
Malwarebytes
SuperAntiSpyWare
Avast

ALL FREE to download and they work great! I run all of them once a week and have been virus free. (Figure I'll use him a little longer since he still feels guilty about the whole thing B) as he should!) It might seem a little overkill but I surf a lot and some sites I go to can be scary :lol: ! Plus they all find different stuff.

There is a fine line between sanity and insanity.... Come walk it with me!

i used mcafee for a while... found for my tastes as a gamer it was using up too much of my system resources, so i switched to AVG, ran that for a few years, and after i kept getting virus's i couldnt get rid of which would result in a reformat, i just switched to avast a few days ago.

i have used it with no problems. i currently have a virgin media connection but will be ending it in Jan. i have a free software package with them at the mo so will be looking for something again after the holidays. i found Norton 360 very good but slows things up. mcafee ok. bullguard ok. i also found that different software found different things. one would say nothing found while another found warnings. this left me wondering too? so i will keep an eye on this post.
