    Hi. My subscription to Norton just ended, so now before I resubscribe to them, I'm wondering what the best Antivirus software is. I'm willing to spend money on the software; I was gonna pay to resubscribe Norton, but before I do, is there anything better I can use?

    Thanks,
    DSF

    Why would you pay for the software? I use NAV05 and it works fine.

    I like NOD32 the best.
    Uses VERY LITTLE resources, no slow downs form it at all.
    And it has some of the top virus definitions as well (up there with norton).

    We're actually still using Norton 2003; we're not rebuying the software, just updating the subscriptions to the virus definitions.

    Has anybody here tried out a bunch of different AV softwares and chosen a specific one as the "best"?

    Yeah, I've tried Norton's 2k1,2,3 and 4, Nod32, Kaspersky (sp?), AVG personal and avast! personal.

    I settled on avast because of a few reasons.

    It uses very little resources.
    The updates download in seconds, even with just a dialup connection.
    They update the virus definitions at least once a day, sometimes as many as three times a day, which is amazing considering it's a free AV.

    And when avast catches a virus, wow, does it ever let you know!
