hi ,I already try avira free edition, avast and nod 32 but ui suggest to you to use nod32 . For me it is easy to use . you can surf net without muc logging while scanning your computer. They are updated everyday.

Free: Avast! Paying: NOD32 This is susceptible to people's tastes, of course, but in what comes to dealing with common virus these are the best solutions I have actually tried and proved useful, functional and light weight enough. Avast!, despite being a free anti-virus, has a good engine capable of doing thorough enough searches to catch some hidden away baddies plus it's updated constantly. I mean, not only daily, but sometimes up to three times a day! If it's a simple enough virus, it should be able to find it and wipe it regardless of how young the virus may be. NOD32 is a very good solution when it comes to paying for your software, because it has also many updates much like Avast! but the engine is better. It should clean not only what Avast! does but it should also intercept a few other nasty surprises. Remember though, these are common anti-virus, they don't do miracles, and they're not prepared to handle with a hand-full of Trojans for example, so it's advised that you reinforce one of these anti-virus systems with something like Spybot (which is completely free) which will help keeping your PC healthy in a few cases.

Thanks.. for this infomation. I'm using Avast because it's free which is much better AVG or AVAST? They are both free right?

I am constantly in search of a good Anti-virus software. What I have right now is AVG. I have also read of AVAST and my nephew said that it is good. There is also one which was suggested by a friend and it is KASPERSKY.

Tend Micro. I have been using it for about 6 years. Never had a problem. It updates automatically, is a great value and provides coverage for multiple computers. I will never go back to the others.

Check out the article over at PCWORLD. They did some benchmarks. http://www.pcworld.com/article/158178/top_internet_security_suites.html. The best one though is the one that is kept updated. It amazes me how many people have let the software expire and run old definitions.

i think norton is a good antivirus program and so is avg but u really need to have a good firewall and need to update the antivirus softwares regularly to be secure also u shud have those spyware detector softwares life spyware doctor to remove all other tracking cookies,malware,spyware,adware,torjans etc but honestly to remove pen drive spreadin virus like autorun.inf and recycler even these softwares are ineffective and u need to use good old MS-DOS to remove these viruses

I think the best Antivirus depends on yourself, my answer may be different from yours. I used Mcafe,Avg,Norton,Kasperskey,Nod32,Panda,PC-cillin,Rising,Jiangming,Kingduba before, and my choice is Avg.It takes up a little cpu and it's free to update. In my opinion,you could try the Antivirus software in this website(http://anti-virus-software-review.toptenviews.com) one by one to find out which ome suits for you.

There is no perfect antivirus, the important things is you update it regularly to keep you safe. I'm try some antivirus like norton and kaspersky but they eat a lot of resources or in other words they are memory hog that why I shift to Eset Smart Security (NOD32)

I use Norton which I bought in the PC store. So far, it's working well for me. But I sometimes use other anti viruses too; and sometimes there are conflicts, lol. I know I should use one at a time though..
