    AVG is a good back up until you get the Symantec Norton Systemworks Pro 2003 NFR

    BTW....What is your choice Minicross??



    Avast passed , AVG failed

    AVG is my backup as well.
    But after reading some of the latest AV comparos, I might give Avast a go !!
    But that GUI....... :D

    according to the above results, I would vote for Avast32. But as it uses so much resources/memory, my system (celeron 300 MHz, 96 mb ram) does not like it.
    so for the time being I use AVG6, as it is so lite on my old system. :doubt:

    BTW are you a member of PCQandA (I did not find a profile with ur name at http://www.pcqanda.com/cgi-bin/dcforum/dcboard.cgi?az=user_profiles&current_view=P)?, otherwise how did you know about this "Symantec Norton Systemworks Pro 2003 NFR" ?

    I use AVG6 as my back-up. I have had no problem with it as of yet.
