When I used Avira, I thought the nag-screen was quite scary - as in - rogue-like.

Hi  :)

Just the thought of False Positives scares the hell out of me   :o

I wouldn't know an FP .. From real Malware  :-[

Add to that... Avira's Pop Up Adverts  ::)

No Thanks!

I've never once even felt like trying - Avira  :P

No Hally, Avira is absolutely worth trying. It is one of the best antivirus programs in the world(oviously behind Avast) but a lot better than AVG or BitDefender. A 1000 times better than PC Tools Antivirus but still lacks the use of many modules. Let's wait till Avira AntiVir Personal 10 comes out and I will be the first to cover it up on this forum(I think and if you want!) Avast! is currently my choice but if anything goes wrong I will always go to Avira for my second preference. I have never even bothered to try AVG because it lacks almost everything.

I've Tried - AVG  :(
AVG was what I had on my Desktop computer .. Before I Found Avast!

Hated - AVG  >:(
For the extra protection - It was the paid version of AVG that I was using ::)
But it was still... Rubbish!
