May be I'm being too cynical/suspicious but this site has some interesting comments about fortiguard:

I use Symantec endpoint protection (very resource friendly) which is the business version and not generally for the home user unlike the Norton brand by Symantec.

I passed only 1 out of the 18 tests and I can say as well that it is a load of tosh.

My network and PC system has all the updates and patches to date and is as secure as it can be.

I don't recommend any free antivirus as it is well free. It isn't going to be as good at securing your system as a paid for piece of software. Just think about it for a second.

But do we need any of it? Aren't we being ruled by fear?

I'm afraid most of this stuff is all Double Dutch to me! I'm using Avast free but I'm wondering if I should by the AVG Anti-Virus? It's advertised on ebay for £1.50 for 12 months protection. Basically the buyer e-mails you with a product key and you activate it and are covered for 12 months.

RT,I've tested them all over the years,and if you're looking for a free AV,then look no further than Bitdefender free. It uses the same engine as it's paid for product. Simply set it and forget it.

Sounds good to me Bonce. Should I uninstall the free Avast programme before I install bitdefender?

Yes. Bitdefender would sense it's presence,and tell you to uninstall,so might as well do it first.

Cheers. Do I leave Windows Defender which came with the computer or uninstall that as well?

Can't uninstall it. Bitdefender will simply turn it off.

This is all good advice i think, i pay £80+ for Norton AV so the free ones are of interest to me.

If you don't like it start your own thread on something of interest to you - how about where to buy size 12 ladies shoes?

Even a slipper thread is looking good compared to this.
