You can always download it from some ''other'' sites. If you really like it then you can buy it.

I never really cared about an antivirus. I have AVG just for the basic protection. I always save my important documents on my external hard disks. My internet Visa card has a 50 Euro limit and only through a phone verification with the bank I can make bigger payments, so no real risk there. Every 2-3 months, I just do a disk-wipe and then a clean install of windows. Sometimes I fuck up and I have to take it to a friend or technician. But I m getting better at it...lol

I like Kaspersky, but its a system hog. I cant see myself paying 60 a year for antivirus when the free ones work just as well. You have to check every year because the programs change, and malware /viruses change so its tough picking a antivirus company. I've been using avg free for about a year now.

Vipre Antivirus is what I personally use. It's not free but it's a very good product. Can't tell you how many times it's saved my bootie. They have a deal going right now where you can use it on up to 10 machines for $49.99. Here's the link in case you're interested.
