Much to my wife's delight, we've been given a pretty good second-hand PC walking Windows XP (she never got on with our now-dead Mandriva box, it's a long story). This means that not only do I own a Windows box for the first time in my life, I also get to administer one for the first time in over ten years. Wish me luck!
I'm planning a full format-reinstall cycle to get it out of Walking Through Treacle Mode, as well as adding a few Linux partitions etc, and then comes the big question: what kind of antivirus would be best for a home setup?
The choice is between Sophos (my employer offers me a free home licence) and any of the free offerings such as AVG, but I can't find any recent reviews of Sophos. Does anyone here have any experience with it?
