    and I wanted all the computer buffs opinions as to whether or not I could get by with just using stuff like Maleware Bytes and Ccleaner and save myself $40.

    i've been using avast for a year now. no problems so far.
    Used ccleaner just the other day, but that's just useful for cleaning up, not protection.

    if you've got the 30 - 40 quid then go for Mcafee, if not Microsoft Security System has been good for me so far

    Nah, I don't want to spend money on anything. I'd much rather pocket the money I decide not to spend on virus protection and buy a new game or vinyl. :)

    i'd still recommend avast though :teeth:

    it automaticly downloads the updates when your internet connection is made, and if you right click on the icon, you have a silent/gaming mode!
    No sounds or pop ups while it's activated! No searching for this fuction or what, two clicks and you're off!
    Excellent for mixing and gaming!

    Nod32 and Kaspersky are the best AVs

    and they're free... if you do some searching...

    Yeah, I would suggest Nod32. I use it on my PC at home and it's never failed me ever, even if my computer gets infected it quickly destroys the infection like good antibiotics... but for your computer.

    I had Avira Antivir (its free!) and was satisfied with it, only thing that annoyed me was the updates every now and then and that they classify (sometimes) harmless shit as virus and remove it (and you need it!!!), therefor I switched to the free NOD trial.
