AVG is free and decent, as is Avast. They are both antivirus programs that would replace NAV.

Malwarebytes and SAS are antimalware programs that you run as well as, not instead of antivirus. SAS seems to be slightly better at detecting things, but it's a lot slower and clunkier. I wouldn't pay for either. :D

Just a heads up. This Thursday just past, a keylogger has been making it's way through a Flash Player exploit.

This affects anyone using Flash (irrespective of your browser, anti-virus etc). They recommend you upgrade to the latest version of Flash to fix this exploit. You can get it here, or search Google.

You know a program is bad when they have to make a removal tool. :lol:

This will zap the pesky remnants.

If you fancy being really paranoid this program tells you what programs haven't been patched.
