    Yes, Although I think AVG's scanning engine is as not strong as many other AV's but I feel that AVG must doing something right in the real-world scenario. AVG Free is very (most) popular while there're better choices such as AntiVir Classic and avast! Home, many users like it and trust AVG to protect their computers which I don't understand why. :rolleyes:

    Hi superdookie...

    I'm surprised NOD32 gave you any problems...o_O

    Other than that, at this point in time, Avast would be your best bet.

    Regards...
