    As I know, Microsoft Live OneCare has a trial period for 90 days.

    Another Choice is Norton AntiVirus in GooglePack.

    Yes...:D :D :D :D ;) It's now presently installed on my pc...:cool: hope they changed their mind before its trial ends or else a new one will be put in...;) Can they possibly extends NOD32 trial up to 1yr. for just thanking users for being making them no. 1.? and the most popular paid antivirus? o_O :blink:

    If you haven't tried F-Secure Anti-Virus software before, you can download a free F-Secure Anti-Virus 6 month trial from HERE

    When your free trial ends you will no longer receive updates for the F-Secure software - you will need to subscribe to the F-Secure update service to continue to have a reliable protection.

    Thanks a lot. I need to do a little searching and see how it is on resources.

    I might try it on my laptop, although I always hate to go through the uninstall, etc process.

    Thanks again,
    Jerry

    Virus Chaser (http://www.viruschaser.com.hk/eng/) offers a 3-month trial, provided that you install the 30-day trial and then register with them, which will give you an extra 2 months.

    At least it was like this a while back, no idea now. :doubt:

    I'll take a one year trial of NOD, or even a 6 months. I did like the 30 day trial, but wish it had been longer.:D :D

    I have the impression that F-Secure is heavy on resources. So far I have not gotten the nerve to test it on my laptop.

    Mercurie, how about you testing F-Secure for me?? o_O

    I also note the heavy resource useage as posted in other threads.

    And lots of processes running therefore it is not for me! Not even a 6 month trial. :(

    Too bad F-Secure is not improved as is KAV in the use of resources. I have been very surprised at the low resource usage of KAV, and the speed of the scans. If F-Secure could approach those, I would like to trial it.
