Viruses are the harmfull program for our computer data. These programs can be affect to our computer's part also. for preventing them to our computer we need the virusscanner or Antivirus. the most Popular Antivirus is the Kespersky 9.0 is in market which is very effective and the fast.

I used the expensive and heavy file Norton...My PC got infected and when I complained..they looked in the opossite direction.
Ever since then its free or nothing..AVG does a great job..Never again problems, and the Anti Virus is totally free !!

AVG has gotten a bit too bloated for my liking.

I find Microsoft Security Essentials to be more than adequate. Does the job and doesn't hog a lot of resources

Besides OS and Office from Microsoft I don't use any other of their products, as antivirus I had bitdefender for a while until it has deleted my OS system files (they were "contagious"). Now I'm using Avg and have nothing to complain about it.

Yes have to say i used Zone Alarm, but that went nuts and killed the PC resources, so i installed AVG free, and haven't had any issues either.

Migrated from AVG to Avast and it's been a good move.

My weekly rant!

27th May 1965: Over 16,000 days.

"For a moment there I returned to my youth, the early youth, when all nice illusions were gathered together. Then life came and, like a strong wind, blew them away, one by one. What we call happiness is sometimes the accordance between our life and circumstances, our biography and history, our personal aspirations and historical currents. If I look at things that way, I can say: I was born too early to be happy. But birth is one of the many things we do not get to choose. It is part of our destiny."

Last week I managed to find two licenses for Bit Defender Anti Virus Plus 2012 (quite cheap from a re-seller)

It works quite nice.

Ad-Aware has become an anti-virus plus anti-spyware!

It is making the PC slow though because of this transformation.

Still can't decide whether I should uninstall Avast and go exclusive wit ad-aware or uninstall ad-aware and look for another anti-spyware/adware.

Any suggestions?

I've been using Bitdefender 2011 since July 2011, and it tells me my computer is free of viruses whenever I run a scan. It only cost me 10 Lira so a solid investment.

So, I have this Avast Internet Security on trial. It will expire in 10 days and I have an option of keeping it for $20/year or switch back to Avast basic (antivirus only).

Do you think it's worth it?

I wouldn't pay for Internet Security. I can handle myself.

Also, I get Norton for free from the University.
