The liscence for macafee is due up this week. I've heard Kaspersky (?SP?) is a better alternative. What do others use? Anyone use the Yoggie standa lone Dongle?

I've found Avast to be quite useful and it doesn't slow the pc down too much like AVG did. And it's the best price of all, free wink

Eset Nod32.

I have worked in the IT Industry for 10 years and NOD32 is IMO the best all round virus checker.

First year licence is slightly more expensive but renewal prices are less than 20

I use "Kaspersky internet security 2010" which is on offer at the moment for a 3 user licence the cost is 19.99, I am of the opinion you won't get an awfull lot for free these days, especial when it is such an important task you are aiming for.
