    I thought avg were not going to give free antivirus anymore, I had it on my bro's machine then kept getting warnings that it would not update after start of jan, so I 'found' a copy of avg pro :laugh:

    for a pc's sake, buy/get a gd antivirus, a champ like Nod32 (low on resources and the best), or Kaspersky Internet Security, these are the best ones w/ no problems ;)

    Is your antivirus software a piece of hardware? No? >>> general software.
