Firewalls are more important than AntiVirus, if you have an “always online connection”, you need to have a firewall first. I recommend C.O.M.O.D.O Internet Security, it includes Firewall+Antiviurs+its free. Moreover frequently updating your software is also very important.

Rule 1: frequent updates!

Rule 2: NEVER open anything suspicious.

Rule 3: dont let usb drives autorun. always scan them b4 use.

following these simple rules, i have been a happieeee user of AVG. Its light enough and strong enough.

I havent used Norton 360, but I'v read it is much much improved over the previous versions.

I am pretty satisfied with NOD32 aka Eset Smart Security for the past 5 years...


#5

I am never satisfied with even single antivirus, just happy with no antivirus at all and never get virus at once.

Sorry, but I don`t want to hurt ESET users but out there some fake ESET version installers also present, be careful.

Symantec Endpoint Protection

Windows 7 original version has a free MS virus solution which works very well.

My solution is to install Ubuntu. You can try installing OSX on your pc as well, works well if u have compatible hardware.

Are you talking about Microsoft Security Essentials?

If yes, then I agree. I have installed MSE and I have had no problems with it. It is working great.

Symentec Endpoint is the best i used yet the slowest and most resource hungry of all

Are you kidding? It is lighter in memory footprint and processor usage than home use AV solutions…

Which version are you using?

^^

not big fan of symantec majority of their products are resource hog, symantec endpoint protection is for some odd reason is different, its reviews by major tech websites are favorable and in my own usage i find it to be very fast less resource hog.

Do differentiate between Symantec and Norton and the scope of either of their product line-up.

Being targeted at corporate clients, SEPP is far faster and utilizes resources only when needed while providing excellent protection from viruses.

I have been a satisfied user of avast free edition for the past two years. It autoupdates itself and works like a charm. Also i recommend upgrading to windows 7. It's the safest windows i have ever used! And i would like to add the following tips to excellent tips by maliksaab:

1. Don't install any unknown toolbars and crap screensavers or animated wallpapers.

2. If you do a clean install of windows make sure to install a virus software on it before connecting it to internet.

3. Firewall is a must if you're using a local cable net provider.

Kaspershy is best.

Buy it if you will.... and do all suspicious things you want. :|

^x2

Been using Kaspersky since i got a free license through my Online banking account, and its done the job perfectly.

Bitdefender is also a good option.


#18

First of all get plenty of ram.. have used all types of antivirus antimalware n stuff but found kaspersky to be da best. Better to buy a licensed version cos cracking it is a big hassle.they block da keys very quickly..but there is some patch available dat does da job aswell.

once again ..get a licensed version ..

-I use Avira Antivirus and COMODO Firewall which are both free (not pirated). There's no hassle of cracks or keygens and it's easy to keep them updated.

-Along with that, dual boot it with Ubuntu. When using flash drives, look for suspicious files/folders (autorun.inf or a folder that's not supposed to be there) and delete it. Ubuntu's also helpful in backing up data or as a secondary OS in case your Windows is giving you trouble.

-Stay away from Internet Explorer, and update whichever browser you use.

-Use common sense. Do not open/download files which seem like malware.

I use windows security essentials, its a install-n-forget.
