    You can try nod32 - that's what I'm using; though, every 2-3 months they are changing username and password, and you have to search for them on the net; if you will have nod32, you can find the updated username/password on my webpage, at www.windows-addict.com

    NOD32 doesn't have a free version - if you are not paying for it you are stealing it if you keep using it beyond the trial period.

    Avast http://www.avast.com/index is one of the better free ones.

    Which ones are best keep changing as different types of viruses etc are released and the different AV do or don't update to detect them.

    Don't forget to start your JavaScript code with "use strict"; which makes it easier to find errors in your code.

    One of the magazines I was reading yesterday that actually tests antivirus programs listed Avast as the best free one and Kaspersky as the best overall.

    I use MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials) on my laptop and desktop computers... Not had any issues with it, and it is built in to Windows 8.

    Why when the latest studies only put in third place behind Avast and MSE - both of which are apparently better at detecting more viruses than AVG is?

    I have used Avast for over ten years with total satisfaction. Strongly recommended.

    All the code given in this post has been tested and is intended to address the question asked.
    Unless stated otherwise it is not just a demonstration.

    I just recently switched to Avast. No huge complaints. Way better than AVG and other 'nagware' solutions.

    Also, AVG tech support (only forums for the free version) is lousy. If you don't format your request EXACTLY as the moderator wants and include every last bit of information that the sticky states, you get a response of "Form your question according to the rules." And they are kind of snippy about it.

    If anyone knows of a website that can offer ColdFusion help that isn't controlled by neurotic, pedantic jerks* (stackoverflow.com), please PM me with a link.
