I was just wondering what you would advise regarding either using the AVG or Avast free anti-virus programs. I have tried both in the last few days... and AVG did in fact pick up a script virus located in a temp internet file which was good... not sure how serious this was... but it's gone now. But after reading some threads here, I thought I'd give the free Avast a try. One thing... it seems to have made another program... Distributed Com Services RPSCC.exe ask for server rights in Zone Alarm... is this normal... does Avast do this, or has this come from somewhere else, but I've never seen this before I ran Avast so I'm a bit concerned about this. Otherwise... it seems ok so far but is there any reason that it may be better or worst than AVG. I don't open unsolicited Emails and practice safe habits so I only really need a free anti-virus program... mainly for resident scans more than anything else to go along with ZA free and the tea timer within Spybot which seems a useful tool. Any comments most welcome.
