to me d antivirus i think i ve used and enjoyed was mcAfee, but now i use c.a but i dont like it compare to bitdefender
Re: Best Antivirus To Use by sting224(m): 5:29am On Mar 19, 2009
My Kaspersy antivirus key expired, so I decided to check tech magazines to see which security suite had the best results and symantec's norton internet security was tops. I now use norton internet security 2009 and I must say its great and lightweight unlike its predecessors. For all u kegen users, I seriously have pity on you, to think of the large amount of trojans/backdoors you have already invited to your pc.

Re: Best Antivirus To Use by tobidaflava(m): 2:18pm On Mar 23, 2009
Why are we not saying anything about Eset?
Re: Best Antivirus To Use by bukchris(m): 3:31pm On Mar 23, 2009
Talk of anti virus i will strongly recommend McAfee. You can use any other one but please stay clear of Norton and AVG anti virus. They are the most useless ones in town. They are known for slowing down computers.
Re: Best Antivirus To Use by mikkylise: 8:58pm On Mar 24, 2009
i think you should check out BitDefenfder. i had a virus recently that kapersky even while updated could noyt rectify, but this new anti-virus did it well.
Re: Best Antivirus To Use by mikkylise: 9:01pm On Mar 24, 2009
ESet,mmm,heard it is equally good but its not that popular. iv only seen my cousin use it on his laptop but also i havent ever heard him compliain about viruses again like he normally always does.
Re: Best Antivirus To Use by Azanor(m): 11:08am On Mar 27, 2009
just installed AVG 8.5 and its not bad at all, it even detects Downadup, that new virus causing chaos.the only downside is that it runs too many processes. bitdefender is quite ok too
Re: Best Antivirus To Use by collins624: 4:01pm On Mar 27, 2009
avg is still ok,cos of tis advantages.
Re: Best Antivirus To Use by lynxnoon(m): 11:21pm On Mar 27, 2009

Re: Best Antivirus To Use by DualCore1: 8:37am On Mar 28, 2009
nothing like best antivirus. different antibiotics for different ailments. different antivirus apps for different virus beefs. just use wht works in a given situation.

i don't use any though, tht's because i don't move about much on the net and those so called antivirus apps just mess up my keygens and cripple ma stuffs
no flash drives come near any of my boxes. no removeable media (except mine) get to have direct contact with my clean boxes.

well yesterday i was away from my laptop and a chic inserted a flash drive and double clicked the drive to open it, thereby ending my laptop's autorun-free life.
i'mma fix tht today. (with the help of some anti virus app, ofcourse. but after tht, they going off)

Tip: When opening flash drives or any removeable media, do  not open the drives directly. Explore the drive.

Just know that Norton is absolutely crap, out of all, I'd recommend McAfee
Re: Best Antivirus To Use by ukingscorps(m): 6:31pm On Mar 28, 2009
Wel checkout avira premium security suit. Its really nice. Others are Eset and even avira
Re: Best Antivirus To Use by mcommerce(m): 9:58pm On Mar 28, 2009

Re: Best Antivirus To Use by lexdino(m): 12:11pm On Mar 29, 2009

Re: Best Antivirus To Use by neowelsh(m): 5:07pm On Mar 29, 2009
The best anti-virus at the moment is Micro-Trend internet security 2009.
Re: Best Antivirus To Use by UNLEASHED(m): 9:56pm On Mar 29, 2009

Re: Best Antivirus To Use by DoubleN(m): 11:12pm On Mar 29, 2009
Still Rocking my Kaspersky Internet Security 2009. As for your question on the best antivirus,just stop using Windows!
Re: Best Antivirus To Use by agabaI23(m): 11:18pm On Mar 29, 2009
Durex or rough rider
Re: Best Antivirus To Use by mygee33(m): 8:49am On Mar 30, 2009
HEI, I think AVG should be fine too.

Has anyone used AVAST here. I wonder if they re still in existence. I hear it takes a "lot of space"

best antivirus
Re: Best Antivirus To Use by lynxnoon(m): 11:28am On Mar 31, 2009
@mygee,
Avast is crap! It slows systems & allows alot of pop-ups!
Tho i feel any antiV is gud as long as ht can detect/remove threats & nt affect pc performance
Re: Best Antivirus To Use by oyb(m): 4:42pm On Mar 31, 2009
Tip: When opening flash drives or any removeable media, do not open the drives directly. Explore the drive.

using regtoy, or winbubble's security tools, you can disable autorun of removable media.

i use kaspersky (KIS 2009)

i used mcafee and norton in the past, and their older versions were major system hogs, mcafee in particular. i'd find myself uninstalling mcafee within 8 hours of installing it, it would literally take my cpu to 100 and freeze my system. i tried bit defender and experineced the same thing. this over two yeras ago, and i've been using kaspersky since. its possible that the new versions are better, and thats what some reviews claim. . .
Re: Best Antivirus To Use by anuu01(m): 1:30pm On Apr 01, 2009
the best anti-virus solution is to use a Mac,


stop wasting your time and money on software that dont do stuff,

get a Mac and get your life back,
