This is a good thread, containing many good tips. Perhaps even worthy of being promoted to an article so it has more exposure. Did you write this yourself?
I personally recommend Avira/Avast over AVG, but I've read that AVG has been stepping up their game recently. Similarly I would not buy McAfee due to horrible personal experiences, and Norton (although much better than it was) still lags behind some competitors if you're going to go the paid route.
I also recommend WOT (Web of Trust), which is a free Firefox add-on (possibly other browsers as well). It gives each web site a rating based on what viewers have rated it; malicious sites are easy identified before you even venture to them on google listings and the like.
@Traaginen I wrote most of it myself the rest was from a friend that is really good with computers. I also use avast just because I was getting the paid version for free.
I liked this, so I could unlike it, so I could like it again! Very nice post, some stuff I didn't know. I thought pdf files were considered safe to be honest
How do you feel about Microsoft Security Essentials? I always feel like it's just doing nothing in the background.
It also comes with an add-on for any browser that is similar to WOT
@Huygens Microsoft Security Essentials works fine for me, but you really shouldn't need a paid anti-virus if you are careful and don't go downloading everything from everywhere.
