February’s Poll Result : Which Anti-Virus Do You Use?

Last month’s poll, asking visitors which anti-virus program they use, received a fairly generous 104 replies.

Antivirus Questions

These results pose several questions and I would love to hear your feedback on them –

1. If you use AVG anti-virus do you run the free version or have you upgraded to the fully paid option?

2. If you voted for ‘other’ could you please let me know which anti-virus you use.

3. How did you choose which anti–virus program to install?

4. Do you use the program purely for anti-virus or have you installed a full suite of programs from the same manufacturer in order to combat spyware and adware as well?

  1. The free version of AVG works well enough compared to paid versions so that is why I use it.

  2. I use the free version of avg because it is, um, free.
