We have used AVG Anti-Virus for a number of years and have found it to be better than some of the market leaders.
AVG products do not slow your PC down as much as other Anti Virus products. Updates are more regular and smaller, ensuring your PC is protected quickly and easily against any new virus threats that worm their way on to the Internet
AVG comes in a number of versions, each one slightly different depending on your requirements. These editions supports Windows 98, ME, NT, 2000 and XP.
