Virus protection helpl needed

marie_ndcalAugust 24, 2013

Again, having trouble with AVAST. Getting a false warning about viruses. This is the 3rd time. So far they have corrected the other two. Never had a problem until I renewed the program the 2nd time. (paid)What is a good one--I do not like Norton--had problems
Any ideas?

Why don't you try MS Security Essentials? I started using it because of false positives with Avast. I have had it for couple of years and I have not had one problem with it. All I had to do to set it up was install and change the schedule for auto scans. I turn my PC off at night and it was set to scan during the night.

Seems that Avast is running into a small number of problems over the last few months, probably not much but irritating nonetheless. Paid or free I would get rid of it, why suffer needlessly.

As Emma notes MSE does a good job and is free. It is a one program does all program and fully automatic.
