    Default What's the best Virus protection program?


    I have used many virus programs and am currently using AVG. However, I am tired of AVG's persistent naggings of version upgrades as they usually are worse than the last. I'm not being cheap, these are free upgrades. This one is definitely worse, and after trying it I went back to 8.5. The newest one beats the heck out of my hard drive all the time and I won't have it. It's too bad I have AVG on three computers here, and all for a year more to go with paid subscriptions. Oh well.

    Also, I have had several issues that AVG never caught through the years of using it. I believe it is a highly over rated program.

    So, any good suggestions?

    I agree these kav antivirus.
    but if u don't want to use any antivirus software and u can easy to use deep-freeze.
    but deep freeze is not save for ur data.
    but u can choose these option for only one partation.

    becoz of all of antivirus protect software are reduce to ur pc performance.
    but i like kav antivirus. kav is the best antivirus software.

    yes I agree that Kaspersky is one of the best. But you can use now Microsoft free Antivirus : Microsoft Security Essentials ( Win 7 and XP). As a reminder it is for genuine windows copy only. I'm using it happily.

    Cool Microsoft Security Essential

    Very good one for basic Antivirus protection. It have Antivirues and Antispyware builtin. Totally free for Genuine Windows customer. Seperate version available for Windows XP and Vista/Windows 7. I am using it on my home computer and office computer (Having large no of computer in the network). It detects all major and minor viruses. Lightweight and Free. For total protection, you may need good Firewall for XP. For Vista and Windows7, builtin firewall is enough.

    this is yet the most deceiving post in this thread. you are never secure with winblows. and never trust anything built by microsoft. built-in firewall is enough? and you say you have a large number of computers? think again, you'll be scratching your balls red soon enough if something passes through your "very basic and built-in firewalls". i suggest you listen to your network packets and see which traffic goes to where... you'll understand what i mean. windows acting "normally" to an ordinary eye does not mean that it is "well protected".

    KAV used to be AVP back in the early 90s. it used to be free, beat up Norton (now known as Symantec) and all other anti-virii software out there. still beats everybody else up to this day.

    if you do not want to be bothered by all these script-kiddies infecting your computers, invest in a real-firewall, and a more stable platform like *nix *nux.

    AVG is no longer a free download, You will need to pay for it next year or find something else
    I,m using AVAST, http://www.avast.com it updates every time you log on, and does it's thing, but it does it without showing any pop-up screens. And more importantly it doesn't want paying after 30 days.
    I'm also using Spy-Bot S&D Resident,, which is also free
