Re: What antivirus is the best ?

Avast user here changed alot anti-virus, most of them either not user friendly, after update still can't detect some virus or use too much CPU resource

Re: What antivirus is the best ?

i change anti-virus very often
cos i either use trial or free version of anti-virus

AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition,i am not satisfied because it fail to delete many virus
Avira AntiVir Personal is quite fast and light but too many false alert
Avast Home Edition is good with detection but scan very slow
Currently using ESET Smart Security trial ,it run very quietly in the background with good detection and fast scan speed
my compaq laptop was preloaded with Norton Internet Security 2005 trial,it was good at detection but it just too lag and slow scan speed

Norton Internet Security 2009 had just released,it was known as huge change over and faster than most anti-virus
i will try it after finished my ESET Smart Security trial.

Re: What antivirus is the best ?

kaspersky is supposed to be one of the best these days. Unfortunately, i bought a copy a few months back and it gave me lots of problems in terms of system load (even though it is not supposed to be heavy). and it kept prompting me for tons of things that it got irritating. perhaps it is my system, i'm not sure, but i sure was not too happy with it.

also, it crashes my laptop running on Vista. *pissed*

O.o, kaspersky, i got 1 copy FOC from my desktop mainboard bundle, but didn't really use it..

Having problems with uninstallation previously, on 2 XP-based computers.

Now satisfied using Avast! Antivirus Professional Edition...
