got a new computer, forgot how much I hate hate hate norton... and IE, first thing I do on any new computer is download google chrome.

I've been using the virus protection from pc tools, and I think it works well. http://www.pctools.com/spyware-doctor-antivirus/ (I also really like their Desktop Maestro) http://www.pctools.com/desktop-maestro/

But before I go buying another version for this computer, are there any recommendations from some of you more savvy people? or just stick with what I know?

yea, got the adblock extension for chrome. apparently they fixed it from where it would still download the ad, but just not show it, to now blocking it altogether.

I use AVG but I'm not really sure how good it is compared to other software. Then I also use Adaware and Spybot (again, not sure how good they really are).
I've never had any problems.

turns out I still had an activation on the old registration, so that solves that.

I use Kaspersky and it has been solid.
