Why is it that some of you people complain about the antivirus applications you’re using yet do nothing about it? According to your post you say your tired of paying for so so applications that don’t offer anything big in the way of network security yet you are afraid to try something new for fear of getting ripped of again? That’s like running in place and you’ve got to remain open to trying new things. Might I suggest doing some research on free antivirus software downloads? There are a ton out there and if you find one that piques your interest simply do a Google search for reviews on the application and then download if it’s good. I’ve found several that work great for me!
