Hi, strangers! Phillygirl Lives. And, as usual, has a stupid question.

I need antivirus protection. I understand there are free antivirus programs. Are they as good as McAffee or Norton?

Does anyone have a free antivirus program they use and are comfortable with?

Thanks.

Ok, so I don't have a MAC, so I go for the AVG. Is this as good as Norton or McAffee?

I use nothing but Windows Security and haven't had a problem in years.

When I tried to download the AVG, I got a box that said it is "not a valid Win32 application." Now what?

Comodo has a free antivirus/firewall combo called "Internet Security". They also offer the antivirus and firewall separately.
