    Does anyone know of a good anti-virus for computers that's pretty cheap or reasonable-ly priced?

    Thanks

    I think he was just joking. Besides.....MACs are not virus proof. There are people starting to write them for MACs....so...yeah.

    My laptop recently caught trojan32/backdoor.cycbot and Norton 360 killed them both, so I recommend that. It usually does a good job of blocking the virus before it strikes :)

    there really isnt one best anti virus program, trust me, I gotten some bads ones where AVG, spybot or malwarebytes couldn't get of them. I got a autotun virus from a USB stick two weeks ago and it ran hell on my PC, Avast / home call finally got rid of it.

    free
    Avast, has boot scan
    Microsoft essentials
    Malwarebytes
    AVG
    Homecall online scanner

    I've been in the IT field for 12 years, and I've never seen a piece of paid software hurt PC's more than this.

    It's not 100% of the time, but very, very often. Be happy you're the exception.

    This, ESET is awesome, especially if you're running something of a gaming computer. It has great security and it doesn't use up a lot of memory. I use to use AVG before I started using ESET Internet Security.

    I use McAfee for free because it was being offered to DoD employees a few years ago, mine just keeps renewing. It's good but it seem to eat up so much memory.

    This. I know it's a resource hog, but it's saved my bacon more times than I can count.

    I use Kaspersky, it's great. And regarding MACs being virus proof: I once heard a classmate of mine say that they can't get viruses. I lol'd and wondered how hard it would be to get a trojan designed for macs on his computer.

    I've been using Kaspersky for a few years now and I'm very happy with it.

    See if your ISP offers one for free. The company I work for offers Trend Micro for free. Been running it for almost 2 years and haven't had a problem yet. And its not a resource hog like Norton or McAfee
