I hate Norton, won't have it in the house! Over complicated, troublesome shite.

AVG for me.

Make sure you choose the free version (unless you wanna pay of course)

I find it really simple, and seems to work great.

imho never ever ever ever ever use Norton, used a genuine copy and had nothing but trouble - ended up losing everything...twice! AVG great free product or use McAfee.

What brand is the ram? roughly how much you looking for?

Gotta agree. After the previous thread where people were very positive about AVG, I've installed both their av and spyware software. Am pretty impressed with it all round.
