IS there any other good AV vendors out there offering free 1 year trials.
below you can get 1 year iolo antivirus.
Never heard of this company, how good is this product and also would you know what engine they use.
thanks Combo! I've installed it,very light and speedy scan .I'll back here for more comments
I don't know about the engine but I know iolo from "system mechanic" which is well known product.
for product info..
It uses the Panda engine I believe.
i thought they used their own engine now.
they did used to use Panda, then they used to use Kaspersky but now i think its their own technology.
Is this from the day you activate or when they send you the license?
i suppose their own isn't as good as kasperskys... obviously...
IT's Authentium composant
not wonderful, but nothing to scream about.
The Blink suite is free for a year. The av component uses the Norman engine and the firewall should be able to be disabled if you want.
Offer is only for us/canada use tor to get through or get someone to send you a key.
From the day they send the serial number.
And only XP

If you don't mind creating a free AOL email account you can download their free "McAfee VirusScan Plus Special Edition".
people have forgot to mention Avast.
Have they OK I'll mention it then...
its different though, aol can only be regeistered in us, and it says aol all over the mcafee security centre and it is slightly degraded with little less function, while the one i was talking about gives you the full version.
wait for ahnlab
CA Antivirus 1 Year Trial
Stupid page doesn't work, LOL....
---> An error occured during the trial registration, please try again later.
Personally I think that Avira AntiVir for free is a tough one to beat...
As to free AVs -- with respect to *certain* AVs, their company's "zero" price accurately reflects what their product is truly worth (such being the case for Ahn Labs, Comodo AV, & PCT AV perhaps?).
OTOH -- the McAfee 1-year freebie at the link provided by computergeek (post #16) seems on the up & up. Is there a hidden catch somewhere? If not, that is a dadgummed fine AV at a jolly good price.
THERE IS CERTAINLY NO CATCHahnlab is not that bad through... you usually pay for it...
