Anyone know of some good, possibly free, antivirus software? Also, I have a bunch of pop-ups on my one computer. Thanks

I can't recommend any free one'* but a nice cheap one is Trend Micro PC-Chillin Internet Security 2007. It'* much better than Norton and Mcafee but cost less. I have this on my laptop and it great.

I second the vote for TrendMicro. I've been running it since '04

I like AVG. It has a small footprint. It barely gets use though because I'm not click-happy.

But I think Trend Micro is the best one out there (if you want to buy).
