AntiVir PE Classic.
I ended up choosing this a while back.
It's not a resource hog by any means and it basically works fine for my needs.
If you want to get a paid antivirus program, go for NOD32. For free, go for either AVG or Avast. I've used both, and both are great, but I havent had as great an experience with Avast, since it was bad with resources :P for some reason.
Im using the brand new edition of norton Anti-virus. It jsut came out with Windows Vista and the program has been completely revamped. It's much smoother and doesn't interfere with the speed and system processes. It actually works really well, despite the previous versions. I used AVG on my old computer though. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great, either.
If you don't want to pay for it AVG is the way to go, its free and decent.
If you are willing to pay and have minimal system resources tied up go with NOD 32
juz pay for macafee and use zone alarm for it's firewall)..i'ts the best....!
I used a lot of Anti-Virus i try:
And finaly i choose avg is better for me, he don't use a lot of resource & he find and remove all virus.
Recently, I bought an Acer laptop that came with Norton Anti Virus and Norton Internet Security 2007. I had a trial version of 60 days. So I used them for 60 days. After that, I dumped it after another 1 or 2 months. Then I tried installing Nod32 into my computer and it detected a whole lot of trojans that Norton failed to detect before. I thought Nod32 was my solution. Then I downloaded Kaspersky and I tried it on the same day I uninstall Nod32. Guess what, it detected no trojans but all the ugly worms and adwares that Nod32 failed to detect. I uninstalled kaspersky after 12 hours or so because it was too troublesome; it had too many pop ups of "allow", "deny"...etc. I installed bitdefender, ran my computer through it and it found nothing wrong with my laptop. No virus, no worm, nothing. I decided to trust myself that my computer is really virus-free now. So I uninstall bitdefender as well. Right now, I have tried
I deleted everything and run my computer without any anti virus. XD!!!
Once in a while, I'll plug in my U3 avast anti virus and run a scan. Up till now, it is still pretty clean in there.
Leen, no anti virus?!! That's like... that's like... riding a bike without a helmet, very dangerous. And if you're using flash disc, it's even more dangerous. I lost a whole year of work due to the virus in flash disc (when i was using Norton), but then i switched to Antivir, it's ok. The file in my hard drive is lost, but i still got backups.
NOD32 FTW, i barely notice it
yar, my friend from school does that too leen, most likely his lazy, but it seems to work for him
backups huh? reminds how little i've done >.>
I agree to some degree that Nod32 is good. It is small in size unlike some other bulky useless program *cough*norton*cough* and it scans fast too. It fails to detect my worms though. T___T Kaspersky was the one that did the cleaning for me, but it has too many pop-ups. Bitdefender is kind of hard to use without the *cough*crack*cough* because it wouldn't want to work properly. So I ended up deleting everything and ride a bike without a helmet.
Right now, I install back my Nod32 and run a scan on my computer. Still clean. XD I guess I'll stick to Nod32 for now. It is pleasing to eyes too.
Don't EVER use norton.
I use Antivir PE Classic. I like it because the easiness of updating it without having to connect to internet the entire time. Just download the latest package, install, and done. Recently I downloaded AVG because it goes along pretty good with Antivir and the virus database is pretty vast. As for the protection from local viruses, I use ANSAV, an excellent click-to-run local antivirus shared by my mentor at college .
for the time being, i'm using mcafee antivirus.. quite costly, but it did a great job for me
Yes, AVG is slow. I had Antivir and AVG before, and Antivir detected something that AVG didn't. But I'll surely give Avast and NOD32 a try when my McAfee expires.
i don`t really like McAfee bcoz it takes a lot of space and make my laptop slow.
but,one of my friend like it.so,i think it depends on people.
i used Norman AntiVirus.it runs smoothly until its liciense expired a while ago.then i tried to install avast without uninstall norman.and my laptop got jammed.it`s only returned back to normal when i uninstall one of the anti-virus.
guess my laptop cannot hold 2 anti-virus at once.
i once got 3 antivirus ran on my laptop.. i got avg, avast and mcafee at the same time!! after a while i just dont see the point of having too many antivirus in my laptop so i uninstalled avast and avg.. now im still using my mcafee and for the time being, it did a great job!
