Thread: Anti Virus?

  1. #1
    What Av would you reccomend, however just a few things i would want with it.

    1)Set it up at the start and not have it fucking around with my system, poping up every two seconds. Im pritty much my own AV as is not hard to tell what sites not to go to but i just want something to sit in the background, do the scan everyday at 4 in the morning, have inbuilt context menus so i can right click and scan any file quickly.

    Basically AVG fits into them but im just wonderng if theres something better. also im not gonna use Norton, what about Nod32? Mcafee? ....and so on.

    Symantec Corp. AntiVirus.

    Why are you not going to use Norton?

    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.

    I tried Norton about a year ago and hated everything about it, the GUI, the constant pop ups, the fact it high jacked my recycle bin and loads of other things. I know its the best 'statistically' but im not looking for the best really, im looking for somethingthats nice and easy on the eyes, no annying pops or changing my system. I've only had MS AntiSpyware thingyy installed for 10 minutes and im considering uninstalling it as its constantly poping up, it said Kazaa Lite was spyware and that so was MSN Plus (i made sure i didn't install the ghey advert bar)

    Ya I hate that NSW antivirus suite. Thats why many switched to Symantec Corp. Because theres no eye candy , its quicker,uses less resources. I could go on on . But you get the gist .



    I use the utilities from NSW just not the antivirus. Peerzy you can run the program's right off the disk no need to install NSW, by the way.
