* @away_xbox straps 15 sticks of TNT to Amak11's body. The display reads [58] seconds.
<@away_xbox> Diffuse the timer by cutting the correct wire. There are 14 wires. They are Green White Peenus Indigo Black Gold Grey Brown Violet Turquoise Teal Magenta Mauve and Yellow.
<Amak11> oh really
<Belisario93> hmm
<Amak11> !cutwire Peenus
<@away_xbox> ...snip....
<@away_xbox> Amak11 cut the Peenus wire. This has defused the timer on the TNT! Just try and get it off you without setting it off, ok?

Wait what

I recommend Avast. It's free for home use. Go to http://www.avast.com/eng/avast_4_home.html. Hope it helps.

if you want to stay strictly legal, AVG is apparently not a bad one either, i know several people that use it.

if you don't care legal or illegal, nod32 is AWESOME, and it works fine on win7. it's just a retail product, so legally it's like $40 a year.

Between AVG, Avira, COMODO (not a bad one) and ClamWin, any of those should be fine. Particularly Avira. COMODO is a bit tempermental with programs, but it will behave if you work magic with it.

note: comodo is not an antivirus, it's a firewall....

Antivirus 2009/Spyware Gaurd 2009.

That's a joke. Don't ever install that. Ever. I warned you, and I mean it.

AVG is good for the windows boxen. I don't have Windows at home, but we use it at work.

Stopzilla works for me. Back on my family's computer, we went through 5 anti virus programs.

AVG + Spybot S&D = Sex. Literally, because you can freely go to porn sites without worrying.
