Norton = resource hog and also they clearly fail ALOT now-a-days. From seeing both norton and kaspersky at work on several computers, I can tell you that norton is a nevermore for me. Personally for a paid software I would recommend Kaspersky Anti-virus. If for a lightweight on system resources, then go for NOD32. Some other decent sofwares out there to. Heck, even some free anti-virus outperform norton alot now-a-days on both system performance and detection ratio...

Yup.. AVG 7.5 free is really famous. :) Try checking the stats in the site : www.downloads.com software download site and you'll definitely see the number of downloads of AVG Free.. I'm using AVG 7.5 Free Ed and I have never been happier since it can really detect viruses/adwares and whatsoever trojans in my computer. It's the best anti-virus software for me.. Not only because it works, it will cost you absolutely nothing. :)

famous here are the AVG 7.5 free edition, norton antivirus 2007, mcafee, and deepfreeze. My favorite is the deepfreeze - it is the most powerful among them that i have used. It has no virus scan that makes your computer sluggish. Its great function was, if you use your computer today and unfortunately you've been attacked by a virus, just restart your computer and all of them will be gone. You're just like using a newly bought pc if you installed it. :-)

Kaspersky is one of the best antivirus among the paid version antivirus. In terms of free AV products, AVAST, AVG, and Avira are amonng the best and effective in terms of scanning your machine against viruses and other malwares. I am currently using a freeware version, which is Avira AntiVir Classic Edition. Since using this one, I have no problems at all and I am very much satisfied with it. It updates regularly and you could schedule this at your most convenient time. It is very light on resouces and does not eat a lot of memory. It does not slow down your machine even though it is running in the background. Its primary function and advantages is to provide protection against viruses, worms, and trojans, protection against dialers and phishing, and detects and delete rootkits. The product combines first-class detection rates and ease of use with a top performance that protects your computer safely. That's it. Have a nice day.

Right now, I'm using the Kaspersky Internet Security and Antivirus edition. I have it for about 7 months now and so far, I am satisfied with the way my computer is running. I also installed Spybot to scan the adwares and stuffs. Before I became a Kaspersky user, I also used the AVG free edition, well, for the obvious reason, it's free. However, I noticed that the downside of it being free was that it did not update regularly and according to several reviews, AVG usually do not detect more serious viruses. Also, when I purchased my computer, it came with the Norton Antivirus which did nothing but to slow down my PC. So, right now, I am happy with my Kaspersky.

Dude i'm from India and here most of the people arround here use Norton Anti-Virus, McAfee, Quick Clean and kaspersky. And talking about me i use McAfee Internet Security Suite 2007. I love this it automatically detects virus. I generaly download Indian music from ajhits.com. Somethimes While Downloadin I get redirected to some site and automatically it downloads virus scripts here McAfee directly deletes that script and informs. It has many features like Site Advisor, Anti-Virus, Firewall, Spyware, Adware, Spam Killer, Privacy Service. It also has other facility like Back-up, Quick Clean and many more check this out if u want by downloadin it from Download.com

Used a few anti-virus (and still do on different pcs) and I'd by far recommend Kaspersky. For a light weight, maybe NOD32. And from personaly experience (and to many headaches), I would say to steer clear from norton.

Norton and McAfee are famous brands of antivirus in the United States where I live. I use Avast however. It is free for home users. It is easy to use and it doesn't gunk up your system like Norton tends to. * I also like the fact that Avast is compatible with both Windows and Linux operating systems. It scans for both the Linux and Windows viruses. Windows viruses can sit in a Linux system, it's best to delete them less you send them accidentally to a friend using a Windows system.

I do not think that I have heard of those ones before. My husband takes care of the computer stuff, so I never really know much about those kind of things at all.
