If you are spending money and you aren't purchasing either KAV or Nod32, you might as well burn your cash.

There are lots of others. If you are looking at anything other than those 2 tho, you might just as well send me your money so I can spend it wisely.

:help:

Or me. :blink:

ScHwErV is right though. If you are looking to spend $$$, those are the best. If you have a low-end computer Kaspersky can be a drain on resources. But if your computer can handle it, Kaspersky it the top dog with the largest anti-malware database and very sophisticated detection/cleaning tools.

If you're curious about how good Norton, McAfee, or Trend Micro is, read this:

Why popular antivirus apps 'do not work'

If you're looking for a free route, I recommend Avast. :whistling:
