Thread: What is the best anti virus software to get?

  1. #21
    Now that Norton (NIS) is back on top as one of the best suites I buy it with rebates and continue to upgrade to newer versions for free with the previous one. Mix it in with Malwarebytes for my antispyware needs.

    norton also comes with complete security solution bundled in one software and when u r thinking of getting it through warez-bb why not to go for it rather then having more then one.......
    tho my personnel recommendation wud be kaspersky, detect as much as 96% of malwares good GUI i only have 1 GB ram never had a problem with CPU usage or ram

    I recently decided because of a promotion for a year free , to give AVG premium a try - had after much trial previously been using eset . Found it to be a horrible piece of software and subsequently, free or not ,premium or not, quickly removed it.
    This break from eset gave me an opportunity to try out a few anti-viruses ( and firewalls -had been using outpost) again . This is my experience with a intel quad core computer with 8 gigs of ram .
    G-data - slowed everything to a crawl ,didn't detect anything more and left traces that required a OP re-install to completely get rid of .
    Kaspersky - newest one is buggy and also some slowdown .Doesn't leave any traces on removal though although a bit "intrusive" while running.
    Bitdefender - decent and pretty thorough but extremely slow scan.
    Panda - nice except for the false positives .
    Aviria - The one I settled on .Light non- intrusive ,supposedly better detection rate than eset otherwise very similar .

    Didn't try Norton from what i read it grabs your system and does like to let go so I didn't feel like buggering around if there happened to be a problem.
    Basically I'd recommend simply by my own experience either eset or aviria with most people favoring eset for obvious reasons.
    It's all Meg's fault.

    Nope they are the same thing.
    If you are interested at all in security software this is a pretty good ,unbiased site.

    I'm using the security suite.
    I'm glad you answered my question, the reason I asked is because in the Avira window it says nothing about spyware/malware.
