Alright, my families norton subscription is about to run out, and Mum has decided that Norton is a pile of crap, which it is, everytime I run for updates, it goes running for hours and then doesn't do anything . Anyway, I need suggestions for a better virus protection program, something that can be bought from Harvey Norman or Dick Smith, somewhere like that. Thanks.

Download Avast! Home version for free off their site. Lasts for 90 days, at which point you can just re-download it. Works fine for me.

I personally use McAfee, and despite all the negative reviews etc about it, I haven't ever had a problem with it.

Your mother is smart. Norton is a steaming pile of crap.

I don't know anything about Harvey Norman or Dick Smith (I lol'd), but AVG, Avira and AVAST are good free ones.
I'm currently using AVAST, and it works fine. It downloads updates in the background automatically, which you most likely won't notice. I do however to advice you to disable the sounds in it because they can be a bit annoying
The best I've tried though, is NOD32, which is not free. I don't know where you can buy it, except online.

I don't think that is required. I hope not, anyway, my computer appears to be running fine.

well, St.Loony, I haven't doubted your word yet

I'll try it, it's the virus protection our school uses, so it must be good.

I say if you were going for a paid one, defo get McAffe. Though if you was getting one for free then AVG + AdAware all the way.

I suggest Kaspersky, it tends to catch a lot of crap that the free ones (and Norton) miss.

This, and has a 30 day trial.

Also MalwareBytes seems to be a fairly common one for getting rid of viruses a lot of others don't catch.

Edit: MalwareBytes is free I believe.

Dude this is nearly 3 months old. TS is banned. Any more suggestions are honestly a waste of time.

I never understood the concept of viruses.
It feels like they're just simply made and sent around to piss people off.
