right after searching the forums to see if there was a thread like this i found one at the bottom of the post after i posted this lol but still ....... read on LoL


Hey everybody...I'm new over here but not to computers :tazz: been addicted to them since '96 and got real good at building em up but i guess this would be an opinion...I think the best Antivirus is AntiVir...it's picked up on stuff all the other ones dont...other people have avg that tried antivir and said that it also got some stuff avg didnt..what ya guys think?

Interesting. I use AVG because statistics took show that it picked up 3 viruses Norton didn't. You must think norton is the worst. :tazz: It is almost malicious when it goes out of date or you try to unistall it.

AntiVir, Avast, and AVG are all free antivirus closely tied. There's no clear distinction on which is the best, but all of them have their ups and downs.

They are all pretty similar, i prefer avast because its got a more professional look and more in the way of features compared to the other two, it is a bit slow to scan in windows but that can be offset by doing boot time scans and using screensaver idle scanning.

Nod 32 or kapersky are the best some features are better on either on so its really a joint first place, NOD32 is my preference has a very good reputation. Then after them it is the free ones, kapersky and nod32 can be overkill for most folks, most of the paid ones though arent a patch on some of the free ones, Norton is notoriously bad for example but it is one of the most popular.
