    Basically, Trend Micro Pc-Cillin Internet Security is all around the best.

    Heres how I’d rate the antivirus programs, Ive used ’em all.

    Antivirus – 3/5 (rarely deletes viruses but detects well.)
    Firewall – 4/5 ( too overprotective, intrusive)
    Overall – 3.5/5 ( easy to use, great detection rate,poor delete)

    Symantec Norton
    Antivirus – 2/5 (poor detection, great deletion)
    Firewall – 5/5 ( blocks well, non intrusive)
    Overall – 3/5 (nice interface, great firewall,antivirus needs work)

    Antivirus – 4.5/5 ( Great at detection and deletion)
    Firewall – 3/5 ( Blocks well, not all, intrusive)
    Overall – 4/5 ( Great choice, few false positives)

    Trend Micro Pc-Cillin
    Antivirus – 5/5 ( Few to no false positives, great detection.)
    Firewall – 3.5/5 ( Great, but no flexibility in blocking programs)
    Overall – 5/5 ( Easy to use,frequent updates, awsome AV/FW)

    Note that all of these come with some sort of antispyware and antispam.

    Trend Micro, in my opinion, is the best for your buck.

    hi, perhaps you can try norton to remove the virus and protect your PC, but you need to pay for the software.

    i recommand you to use firefox with Google toolbar. firefox can disable all virus to run, because the virus can only run on IE.

    besides, firefox can block any any poppus and disable any virus and adware, spyware on webpage, so, firefox is much safer than IE. as you know, most of the virus is spread throught internet and webpage.

    firefox is much smaller than IE, so i run faster than IE.

    download firefox for free:


    Best Wishes && Good Luck!
