    lol, nice xD

    But I wouldn't say that's the fault of the software in any case.
    My mother is to lazy to update the antivirus prog and just closes the firewall when it blocks something >____< ... and that's why I have to clean her PC every month.

    Same with most of all infected computers. Wrong settings, unregular updates, outdated software, carelessness ... and in the end it's everyones fault but not the fault of the user itself .. there's a acronym for these people in German: DAU

    Re: Anti-Virus Programs.

    Thanks for all the talk and suggestions. I've never had any problems with viruses and spyware. It's just that Norton is a huge resource hog and my old crappy computer isn't handling it too well.

    I'm going to do a little more reading to find out more about the programs you guys recommended and then I'm going to try one program on my computer and another on my other computer.

    Yup, I second that ^^ AVG is the best although Avast is good too.

    Re: Anti-Virus Programs.

    I have both AVG and Avast. When I turn both of them on, Avast always detect the virus first before AVG has the chance to inform me about the virus. Hence, the winner is Avast for me. XD That's me of course. Feel free to use anything of your preference though.

    Re: Anti-Virus Programs.

    Well the best ones I know are McAfee and Ad-Aware.

    Re: Anti-Virus Programs.

    Ad-aware is for spyware, not virus.
    McAfee is too troublesome. It comes with dell all the time but once the subscription is over, oh hell break lose. The notification is so troublesome I decided to just delete it once and for all from my friend's laptop. Guess the replacement? Avast professional edition 4.7. Until now, the laptop is still fine. Also, when you run both McAfee and Avast at the same time, when a virus popped up, Avast is still the one that detects the virus. XD

    Re: Anti-Virus Programs.

    I fail to see how you can install two anti-viruses at the same time. Usually the pc dies when you do.. Then again I am not THAT knowing when it comes to technical stuff. But you should really try comparing Avast with Nod32. For me, any other anti-virus program (or virus) has yet to defeat it.

    Re: Anti-Virus Programs.

    I can run both anti virus at the same time without any problem whatsoever. I don't know how it works out but yeah , my pc can do so. I've done AVG Home Edition/Norton 2005, AVG Home Edition/ Avast Pro. 4.7, Avast Pro 4.7/AntiVir(another friend's laptop) and Avast Pro4.7/McAfee (my friend's laptop). It worked out fine, both PC and laptop.

    Maybe something with the bios? After all, all of my PCs have been bought from Scandinavia, so I don't know. Most of my crashing experiences were also with installing Kaspersky, so that might be it.

    Re: Anti-Virus Programs.

    Generally there should be installed only 1 antivirus for pc because of conflicts betwween softwares which do the same thing.

    Re: Anti-Virus Programs.

    i use a combination of Avast and Housecall, housecall is a 100% free online scanner that uses java its relativly fast and easy on the resources

    http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ <---housecall

    in my honest opinion norton is bloatware from hell and completely useless not to mention u have to keep paying for it ;/ i have seen one too many computers taken down in my field of work x.x

    Re: Anti-Virus Programs.

    AVG is a really good anti-virus software.
    None of the others work for me. I heard that Norton has a virus inside the software.
