    Use Avira antivir or avast,
    AVG free doesn't include rootkit protection and i have found rootkits very
    common nd sometimes harder to fix than other malware.

    either way paying for protection is over rated

    Avira is *not* what it once was or should be:

    Avira AntiVir Personal 9.0 review

    " Avira AntiVir Personal is easy to use, but we were disappointed by its
    poor web-threat detection and unreliable automatic updates. "
