    My aspire came with a 90 day trial of Norton. I think you can still get a Bitdefender 2009 license in the freebies section (just ask). If not I would say - AVG from the list

    I'll check it out thanks!

    Hmm i'll try this one out too. Tight match between avg though. I don't know which one to choose! haha

    to Odie:

    Your 90 day trial of Norton is just the AV or a complete security suite?

    Seriously, if I were to choose between AVG and RISING, I'd 100% go for RISING.

    I don't recommend AVG 8.0 as it is a bloatware. Use either Bitdefender or Avira free for good protection.
