I finished reformatting the drive and now I am loading the drivers and programs etc.

What should I use for virus protection. I had been using AVG. Is this still a good option?

I prefer MicroSoft Security Essentials.

MicroSoft Security Essentials All versions and all languages.

I prefer Internet Explorer but some say FireFox is a safer browser.

None that I know off. Of course, it all depends on which sites you visit which I why I advise using WOT to tell you sites are dangerous.

WOT - Web of Trust . WOT is a free Internet security addon for your browser. It will keep you safe from online scams, identity theft, spyware, spam, viruses and unreliable shopping sites. WOT warns you before you interact with a risky website. It's easy and it's free.

Now on to the other desktop to make sure it is clean. Should I post here or start a new post?
