I have a high opinion of Avast Free Anti-Virus, I put it on peoples pc's all the time and they have had nothing but positive results. Even those "clueless" ones that browse porn all the time.

AVG was the 'it' freebie for a long time but not anymore IMO.

Bottom line, if a pc does get infected, you could spend valuable time trying to 'anti-virus' it...but your much better off reformatting and then installing a new Anti-virus (Avast ).

I've hunted crap down through my registry manually (5 different places) just to see if I could do it...but now I just keep a system image and I'm back up in 20min.
