Hi all,
          I am looking for a good Virus Scanner. I have used Norton ...(dont like it)... I have had a subscription to McAfee for a couple of years now. The newest version of McAfee has turned into another Norton. So Im looking for a GOOD alternative....and I dont mind buying it!
 Also,  Is there a good tool to clean up the system registry and not screw things up?
                                                                         Thanks,  Don

Greetings, Oklahawkfan !

NOD32 is a very antivirus software. It uses minimum resources and highly reliable.

If you want free antivirus, AVG, AVAST, and Antivir are good antivirus programs.

Best wishes!

Using Nod32 for the 3rd year in a row now, besides Zonealarm Pro (as restricted user;-)

Great product!

Fast - daily updates - no "hey dude everything is fine don't worry do you like me to tell you a story" messages at all!

Kaspersky AV is the best on the market in practically all reviews (and i've been using it 3 years now without being infected) - www.kaspersky.com
you can get a free 30 day trial - http://www.kaspersky.com/uk/trials.

Reg cleaner is a good, easy to use one to tidy the registry - http://www.worldstart.com/weekly-download/archives/reg-cleaner4.3.htm

for antivirus you can try kaspersky (www.kaspersky.com) or AVG (www.grisoft.com or free.grisoft.com (free version))
for cleaning up the registry you can try "tune up utilities" (www.tune-up.com)

For cleanung up use the free ccleaner - it also clean up your registry:

http://www.ccleaner.com/

CCleaner is a freeware system optimization and privacy tool. It removes unused files from your system - allowing Windows to run faster and freeing up valuable hard disk space. It also cleans traces of your online activities such as your Internet history. But the best part is that it's fast (normally taking less than a second to run) and contains NO Spyware or Adware! :)

I have used www.free-av.com Antivir for years.  They recently created the option for paid services, but I'm happy with the free one.  I'm not sure what you look for in Virus scanning software, but nothing stops everything.
