i dont use avg. i use norton. norton rules.
^ it lags games.
rele dunno, don't use norton anymore, i remember i used to use it until my computer started to load up rele slowly and that annoyed me so i changed.
i still use norton, but what i do is that i shut it off permanently, and only turn it on when i need to do some scanning.
i use eset and there is no lag for me.
Norton is a dead cow to uninstall!!!! stand by it
is a powerful and easy-to-use application that removes temporary files created while surfing the web, empties the Recycle Bin, deletes files from your temporary folders and more.
CleanUp! frees disk space and reduces the "clutter" on your computer helping it to run more efficiently. It also can be used as a way to protect your privacy on the Internet. You can even instruct CleanUp! to securely delete files making it impossible to retrieve their contents using lower-level disk tools - just another way of protecting your privacy.
i use ccleaner, i think thats a very useful tool for ur comp as it keeps it pretty clean from cookies and other stuff u get whilst surfing the internet. also, it cleans up ur registry too and best of all its free.
i didnt install any anti-virus program on this new DELL ( using since april) I really like it..
i will go for AVG cause it is FREE, and it works.
Anyone use Threatfire? Is it just another Anti-Vir program?
Yes. Threatfire si another anti-virus program. But unlike other antivirus progams, it doesn't rely on signatures but behavior. I wonder how it protects the pc from low process virus though.
Just download K-Lite Mega Codec Pack and install it and you can play pretty much any video
vlc and storm codec works too!
Threatfire is not used as a standalone virus protection, but as addition to the antivirus installed on your computer.
Threatfire is not an antivirus. It's HIPS (Hosts Intrusion Prevention Systems). It blocks event based on behavior and mostly it's up to the user to allow or block a software. There are some (i.e. Threatfire, Norton Anti-Bot) that are easier to use.

the all new norton 2009 for gamers seems to work pretty good,
however i use trend micro as it gives a really good protection on the computers:
- if you end task (the process), unprotect the autoprotect, for Trend, it will prompt you for a password, whereas this will just let you end the Norton process, so whenever u got hacked, you are still not protected...
For antivirus kaspersky is the best but for free is avira. Cleaner i using ccleaner since its free
