    Love it, integrates into Windows well, no nagging screens, updates via windows update, free, fast scanning.

    Run it on quite a few personal machines i look after, free, quick, unobtrusive, detects a virus and appears to remove it quite adequately, doesn't recommend you upgrade to a paid for version every 2 seconds, doesn't appear to affect the speed of the machine (unlike a lot of av software) Pretty happy with it

    Very good, I like it a lot and use it on all of my Windows machines now.

    However, and I hate to open up a can of worms again, but isn't it not allowed on school machines? Or have I remembered the conclusion of a previous post incorrectly.

    Great and lightweight. Stops things that Sophos has missed and only used 3.5MB vs 85MB using Sophos!

    Good program for home use. Definitely not allowed on school machines. Fact.

    I'd recommend it to anyone!

    Far better than anything else, especially on old XP machines (except for those with less than 256Mb of RAM!
