    AVG has blocked and cleaned every virus i had.

    AVG is free.

    McAffee came on a trial basis with my laptop, after I read it was a memory hogger, I uninstalled it and installed AVG, straight away there was an improvement in the performance.

    Noroton 360 & Avg.

    AVG doesn’t recognise most rare virus’s, it’s better to get one which you pay a bit of money for, you know it’s truthworthy then.
    I use Antivirus 2009, and I’ve never had a virus since I started using it. The price was 50$ when I got it, but you can probably find it for less elsewhere. Good Luck!

    You don’t really have to pay for anything to get realtime protection. There’s the free and very effective Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware. If you are not happy with the very simple control panel of MSE then there’s Avast. It has a free version too.

    However, if you really want to be serious in getting rid of virus and other sorts of malware then you can get Kaspersky or Norton.

    By the way, Norton is no longer a resource hog. They have already fixed and made a major change last year. The top contender in the resource hog category right now is McAfee. Here’s a good reference and guide in choosing an excellent AV solution:

    I have Kaspersky on my desktop and MSE on my netbook.

    Microsoft security essentials

    download it here:

    it catches a lot of threats it is very light so it doesn’t use up all the space on your computer, it works in the background so it wont have to ask you to scan it just scans and if you have a threat you can remove it, if your away from your computer and a threat appears, Microsoft security essentials will remove it automatically. And best of all it is from Microsoft!

    Kaspersky is best antivirus and spyware program. It protects your computer against viruses, worms, spyware, adware and trojans. Its fast, smart and won’t slow down PC.

  8. Amit said :

    eset nod32 smart security is the best,never slow down pc,give full protection,all features,and detection rate is outstanding,
    buy eset nod32 and forget about any type of threat,

    i am not impressed with avg –it is popular junk ware
    if you have to use freeware -before warned it has very limited protection
    even supersantispyware ( which is on sale now for 9.98 -full version
    avira or avast is better than avg
    here are my top three
    G Data internet 2011 25 bucks
    kaspersky internet security –price depends if one comp or three
    eset or nod32
    all these do need malware program back-ups
    malwarebytes –even at 30 bucks is a bargin to get real time protection
    or if you are serious like me —-i use
    a virtual machine for my home network ( 5 comps )
    these need to have a reinstall of your OS ( a clean n virgin one ) before it connects to the wire –it takes a snap shot of the install —which allows you to go anywhere –when you are done you go to that snap-shoot-
    all is destroyed –so there is no need to have an av program

    look here for a youtube review video on both

    Just personal opinion of course. I use Avast , I have also got superantispyware and Malwarebytes. I recently changed to Comodo firewall which seems fine and I seem to boot up quicker. They are all free for personal use and I have had no trouble with Viruses Trojans Hackers etc. I also use Windows Defender from the Microsoft site. It is safe to use two anti-spy products but never use more than one A/V as it can cause conflicts. You should run A/V and anti spy weekly.

    try panda antivirus ,

  12. stef said :

    You can use free security software to protect you computer against viruses. Try Avira, Malwarebytes, Microsoft Security Essentials and Panda Clound Antivirus.

    Check these videos out on Prevention and detection tests for different Security Product
    Its all about the UNKNOWN not about the known threats these days so you have to be very carefull on what you chose
    None of the free antivirus or Security suites on the interenet except COMODO that can Protect you against zero day or unknown threats
    By zero day or unknown threats I mean those virues or trojans or any other form of viral threat that are so new that there is no signature for it and so they cant be detected
    and most of the Security products today that depend only on Signatures or even Heuristics are a Big FIAL against these Unknown threats
    Products that have some sort of protection against zero day threats are
    1: Kasperky 2010 uses Hips and Sandbox
    2: Norton 2010 uses SONAR 3 there behaviour blocker the only one out there that really works
    3:Comodo 4 uses Defense+ as HIPS and a Sandbox and above all its free
    Watch the reviews and See these Products in action against zero day malware and choose for yourself.

    Common Sense is the best one out there. Never ever get any spyware or viruses.

  15. James said :

    try MalwareBytes.. it is reallly a good tool

  16. Gary said :

    Those 2 that you have are fine. I would add 1 or 2 more anti-spyware programs from these free ones:
    ♠ Ad-Aware
    ♠ Spybot Search & Destroy
    ♠ Windows Defender ◄─ if you have Vista or Windows 7, you already have this one
    ♠ Malwarebytes
    ♠ a-squared
    Always update before running a scan.
    I’ve used them all for years.

    WARNING: Stay away from Antivirus 2009 that someone posted. It’s a fraud program:
