I vote avast, I once said comodo but its turned out to be one of the worst.
Yes the "virus updated" is annoying but I would sooner be free of viruses.
I loathe norton since the expensive package allowed a virus to trash my bios and motherboard.
I also use spybot and avg rootkit detector.
I also rum a linux system using mepis so don't have to worry with that one.

You're wrong. Windows is in fact more secure than Mac in some ways.

I don't use a antivirus either ... i use mozilla to protect me...
I know how to identify a dodgy site and my no script blocks all the crap.


but i think i did get infected some time ago... till this day I don't know if it was a virus or if I just messed something in my settings.
But as a precaution I use bitdefender, cos its free.

Yes, use avast, don't use AVG.

I recommend Avast because AVG has heuristics that detects many legitimate items as malware. It has also blocked some websites and mark them as a 'phising site' even though they are not and even after adding them to a exclusion list (tested by me). I remember once when it detected one of it's program files as a trojan! affraid

Hello,

I use Avira AntiVir. Is a German version, which you don't know, right?

I've only used 3
Norton,
AVG,
and BitDefender.

AVG, and BitDefender both have free versions which is cool.
but I would pay the $50 (U.S. Dollars) a year for Nortons services. Its so much better, and worth the money. Especially if you download from torrents.

Always used to use Norton, but switched to AVG a year ago and immediately noticed how much quicker it is. Wouldn't go back to Norton.

Avira, but otherwise i don't care. My daily tasks, tests, everything is performed on virtual machine, whatever changes i make to the system doesn't "affect" it due to the restore button.

Vmware4life.

Avira is good enough as a freeware. Much better than the free alternative, AVG.

ESET NOD32 seems the proper anti-virus, so I think I'll stick with it.

For your anti-virus needs, I would suggest Avira AntiVir® PersonalEdition Classic. It has excellent heuristics, a virus detection rate that is better than most "paid-for" anti-virus programs and is light on using your computer's resources. Uses less then 10 MB RAM on my machine. And did I mention that it's free!

I am also using the kaspersky 2010.
I realized that I don't get infected from the net... its damn pendrives and removalable discs that are my problem.


but pendrives are like virus magnets... I mean come on...
I go to a friends house, get some files... come back home , plug in my pendrive and kaspersky goes mad with trojans and other junk

I use Common Sense 1.0. Works every time.

jalokim, you can eliminate your problem with removable media if you disable autoplay.

Doctor Inferno : I know and i agree. Last time i used AVG it shut itself down and displayed me an error message in Polish ( which isn't my mother language ).

musket : mvps eh ? Razz Nice, but i am using improved version with around 170.000 entries, while mvps only has 16.500.

Jalokim : as Dion said, turn off autoplay and scan all inserted media before "opening" it.

Dion : generally i would agree, but it has shown in practice that common sense isn't enough nowadays... It greatly helps, yes, but its not "everything".
