I had a reputable program on it for spyware . I had done a full sytem scan . It quarantined and started the deletion process when I noticed that all my desktop icons were starting to disappear . Unable to stop the process I figured that I would just recover it after the quarantining . That didn't happen . The next step was to restart the computer and at that point I knew I was screwed . The operating system was gone and I would not beable to restart . I was unable to locate my reinstall discs and had to contact Dell to get the new ones . Dell was very helpful after the transfer of ownership from the retailer to me was complete . Then I had to purchase and install a new hard drive to prevent from losing data that I needed to save . So now my pc has 2 hard drives . The 4 discs that Dell sent have been installed . My windows updates have been installed and I've started transferring the data I needed to save . What a time consuming job . I am now gonna try and stick with running Windows Security Essentials program only and see how this does .

I've had good results using Windows Security Essentials, no problems here. Just make sure you update the definitions frequently.

I have recently started using the freeware version of Avast after hearing some very good reports about it.. I threw a couple of toughies at it, and got very good results. :4-dontknow: May be too early to tell for sure, but figured I'd toss it out there for consideration.

I use to run Avast as my antivirus . Had no issues at all . I may go back to it . Cnet gives it good marks also .
