    AVG or Avast?

    I wanna get a new, free AV to compliment Norton's worm protection (I'd like to stop relying on it for full system scans...all I hear are bad things about Norton, and this'll be the third time I've got to renew my subscription).

    Basically, without some big introductory paragraph, which do you prefer?

    AVG or Avast?

    I'm partial to AVG myself. I install it on every computer I do work on, and I've never once had a complaint or problem with it.

    Never install more than one anti-virus program. They will interfere with each other. That said, I use AVG.

    I use AVG as well. That said I have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to anti-virus, I just let the icon sit in the corner and dl the updates as and when it prompts me to do so.

    does it check your system automatically? if not, you should probably do that then at least once a month ;-)

    It tells me to click 'scan computer' every now and then, which I assume is sufficient?

    I use AVG and have it run a scan every day. I can't complain
