I have problem of chosing the best free antivirus, i mean between avast and AVG, if we were to vote, i am sure one of those 2 will win.
Some will also say avira - but i have never used it yet

I agree totally with you on that, i did say i consider kapersky the best in my last 3 post from now. . .
the above post, i was rating the best free antivirus - based on my own experience.

I will recommend first karpesky as the best overall
then AVG and macafee.

Re: Best Antivirus To Use by kend0a2j: 1:00am On Jul 02, 2009
Used AVG for a long time and i was in love with it, until it got to a point i could not update it anymore, each time i try to update i get error msg. tried Avast and discovered it was not stil good enuf while i tried cleanin my external HD from some trojans, then tried NOD32 for a while and it only made it worse couldn't do a thing kept advising to delete files instead of repair, then Kaspersky did a little wonder but could not keep up wit kaspersky cos it detected some of my programs as virus and wouldn't let them run properly plus i was using Win XP compat. application for Vista, u know d difficultly if u know wat am talkin about, and then came Norton 2009, wow am sure this will break many hearts, it worked wonders fixed my external HD but stil didn't like it cos i never did, now am back to avast.

In all i stil think kaspersky worked the best during this period.

The best antivirus is not easy to say. The best way to find out what might be close to the answer is to visit websites with huge antivirus reviews. There individuals will give you their experiences and reasons for respective performances from this products. AVG is the most downloaded on the internet, i wonder why? But personal advice is USE INTERNET SECURITY OH! BETTER THAN SO CALLED ANTIVIRUS.
Re: Best Antivirus To Use by shilohboy(m): 7:23am On Jul 04, 2009
Been using avast for over 5 years now and it hasn't given me cause to cry. I'm always getting online to recieve updates. Not saying its the best, just personal experience. My belief is tat all antiviruses are not 100%. If one antivirus can do it all,why have newer versions? The makers leave loopholes in the programs, probably create a virus tat can get thru n then when ur pc gets infected, they tell u that their antivirus software can handle it so u go to them for upgrade or download from them a new program. Wat do y'all think?
Re: Best Antivirus To Use by Nobody: 11:19pm On Jul 05, 2009
please, nobody should venture near deepfreeze, mcafee and and panda. the stupid programs crashed my system making me lose everything in my system evem when i hadn't run it.
avg, stupid anti-virus couldn't detect and 'quarantine' as it usually does.

I need hlp with getting rid of autoron.inf on my system. My avast dosen't seem to see it as a worm/T-horse during scans but if i copy files from the system to a laptop running Mcafee the Mcafee detects the autorun.inf.

Re: Best Antivirus To Use by blackman2: 5:02pm On Jul 16, 2009
i think the best anti virus to use is the best ever on earth neglected by human and that is Spire ware terminator reliable
Re: Best Antivirus To Use by skydancer: 2:52am On Jul 21, 2009
Actually there is definitely no best antivirus I know yet. This is because Antiviruses mainly use virus signatures to detect viruses. As such, it is as if the Antivirus company with the largest database of Antivirus is the best. AVG sometimes has the highest virus database. Kaspersky once topped too. McAfee has never topped since they topped in 2002. Norton is known for its smart heuristics. Kaspersky also has nice malware counter technologies like ichecker, e.t.c. As for me, I don't use AntiViruses, and I can assure you that a virus has never entered and can never enter my system without my permission. I am the kernel of my PC.  cool I dance on the sky
Re: Best Antivirus To Use by muyiscoi(m): 8:34pm On Jul 21, 2009
the best antivirus is to toss your windows box and install any of the flavours of linux out there preferably Ubuntu (my fav.) and you will never have virus wahala again. grin
