A Recommendation for Virus Protection

I have been using e-Trust EZ Antivirus for quite a while now on my home PC. I have used virtually all of the others over the last few years but what I really like about this program is that it doesn't intrude on the operating system. I have seen Norton AntiVirus and McAfee VirusScan cause some serious problems on PCs. This program has an outstanding design, simple yet effective. I recommend it to everyone I meet through my work and would recommend it to anyone. You can download an evaluation copy of e-Trust EZ Antivirus from It will keep your PC safe from virus infection. I cannot stress how important it is to keep your PC virus free especially with the new email viruses that you may not even be aware that you are distributing private files to everyone in your address book. A recent virus infection occurred on my machine at work and even though the virus software (Norton) was updated it still failed to detect the virus. Unknown to me during the day another member of the staff had checked their Hotmail email account and opened an attachment activating the virus, which lead to a lot of problems. After downloading the update from Norton, it could tell me that I had a virus on the machine but that was it - no further details. After a lot of time wasting I downloaded EZ Antivirus and within twenty minutes of installing and updating the machine, EZ Antivirus had found two infections and cleared them and the machine was up and running again and with email notification of updates it just couldn’t be easier.
