Hey guys,

My 1 year subscrition for Norton Internet Security runs out in 28 days but I dont think im gona get it again for the main reason that its a resource hog.

However, I dont want a free antivirus product. I would rather pay for a 1-2 year subscription. Better safe than sorry I say lol

Has anyone got recommendations on a 1-2 year subscription Antivirus program?? (not mcafee)


I was looking at AVG professional edition and for a 2 year subscription it seems quite a good deal...


Cheers guys :whistling:

NOD32

Unless the pricing is advantageous for a 2 year sub, try one year as a better programme may come out, or the installed one may have improvements which they usually then only include in a new version

I like the look of NOD32 and ive heard quite good things about it. My friend uses AVG free and it seems good too.

I will post here again tonight about NOD32 etc.

Keith -

Do you have NOD32 ?? If you do could you post a few screenshots here so that I can see what it looks like.

The screenshots on google for NOD32 look pretty crap lol.

What is wrong with the AVG/ewido conbination that is on offer here, after all, there really isn't any perfect solution otherwise the security department here would be plugging it.

I suppose, but I personally feel more secure knowing that I am paying for a quality product. (AVG is a quality product but i dont like its interface lol)

Thats the reason Im not going for products like norton again due to the fact that they take up too much RAM.

NOD32 is in my books just now. Im gonna look for reviews and all that stuff on it.
