I was using AVG until recently, but I found out it makes my computer veeeeeeeeery slow, and when I deleted it, it started working better. I still haven't found a new program though.
Yeah I'm currently using AVG on my laptop right now too. Damn I miss avast!
But I dunno if AVG is the reason my laptop is slow but may have to look at it as potential reason.
The last I heard, Avast! Free Home Edition and Avira Antivir are the best free antivirus programs and I use one of them. With spyware its more complicated because even without considering more specialist programs, the best free ones have different strengths and weaknesses. The best combination for scans on demand would be a combination of Emsisoft Anti-Malware, and Malwaebytes Anti-Malware and SuperAntiSpyware. (My information comes from Techsupportalert.)
Kaspersky is excellent..just recently started using it.
Before that, i was using avg pro and it made my computer slow too. Kasper was a better choice for me
I was suing Kaspersky before I switched to Avira. I didn't remember why I changed the antivirus, but I thought it was because I couldn't update my Kaspersky then my computer was attacked. Do you use the free or paid one of Kaspersky, Zelx?
Anyone use Norton here? It's mostly come with new laptops when you buy them, but I would always take it off. XD
For a moment there I thought you had sue kaspersky
anyway, I'm using the paid one, the free version is only the trial I think.
And yeah, I hate norton. Tried it once, deleted it and never looked back
I like AVG. Be careful though that you don't run two at the same time. Having more than one could cause holes in your security.
i m using avira antivirus, its interface is quite user firendly, i used avast b4 this fun i find avira to be less of a durden on the PC than avast.
imo(given that both are free ware) avast is slightly better .
any way if you are regular in update and your protection is on then i dun think the regular virus will attack. if its super nefarious then thats another thing entirely
