Just abit confused as Ive downloaded the free ones - but all only do certain things n give you options to upgrade.
Have I picked the right ones Jan:
AVG Anti Virus Free 9.0
Super anti spyware Free edition
Malwarebytes Anti Malware
Final IVA payment made in April 2013, never ever thought we could do it or get through it but we did! X

Ignore the upgrades, you have to pay for those.

The free ones will give you the cover you need.

AVG is supposed to be one of the best, our IT guy at work recommends it.

Lyns, you'll find that the free version has all you need to surf the web safely, the upgrade does give extras which have to be paid for but AVG are a business like others and will always say that you need to spend money to get better. Stick with it.
If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else’s, we’d grab ours back.

Funds paid to date accepted as F&F 16th August 2013, the wait for completion begins.
Wait over....certificate recieved 3rd May 2014

I just downloaded that when I got this laptop.

No need to worry Lyns, they're all ok.
