I am using McAfee total security but it has not got many features as that of AVG or Kaspersky. So I am thinking to buy another security suite for my pc. Which suite do you use?

I used to use McAfee, Norton and Trendmicro. Now, I'm currently using the free AVG. It can detect viruses but cannot heal them. It will just go to the vault. I've been using AVG now for more than 6 months. My PC has viruses and it does affect the speed processing of my computer. Though I was not able to totally remove the viruses. I'm planning to do a recovery on it.

Hey, why don't you just steal that, too! Why do you even worry about security, it seems like nothing on your computer is rightfully yours anyway.

Dear friend, I too used Macafee and later changed to Kaspersky. I just changed it from a recommendation of my friend. Until now it is going well. May I have changed it few months back.

Hi mukul, i'm using Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 edition and its working fine for me. Its detects most of the recent viruses too and that's a good point of using it. I've tried AVG 8.5 Internet Security but while scanning, it slows down my system. Also, last year, i was using Norton Internet Security 2010 and it was really great anti-virus. Even better than Kaspersky Internet Security 2010. But this year, i choose Kaspersky 2011 as Norton wasn't ready with its 2011 version, so i had to settle with Kaspersky. But now, its 2011 version is released, so you can try Norton Internet Security too. I'm planning to install that in my other OS.

I am using AVG for years now. Some few months ago, i tried to use Avast. I kinda like it most especially when a voice over that sounds like Denzel Washington periodically tells me that Avast is updating or scanning.However i got corrupted with a very strong virus while i was having it, so strong that we cant get rid of the virus even after so many reformats. So i switched back to AVG, and although i kinda missed Denzel Washington, at least i am not having problems with viruses nowadays.AVG is a conservative internet security that sometimes some online games has hard time working while AVG resident shield is active.

I have been using Norton for the last three years, and I am very happy with it. It is wroking very well keeping the system well-protected from the virus attacks. The viruses keep bothering mow and then, and it ias absolutely necessary to have an anti-virus program.

I use AVG free download. My computer guy uses this anti-virus protection. So if it's good enough for him, then it's good enough for me. I also use Super anti-Spyware for adware and spyware.

I use a free edition from Hungary I think. If ever I should need real-time upgrades for AV & Malware protection, I would upgrade with that product. McAfee was a good product when offered via a business for free :) Eric

I would recommend monitoring security yourself... just be careful what you allow on to your computer. Most, if not all antivirus/antimalware programs slow a computer down more than a virus, and if you ensure not to keep sensitive data on your computer (or at least encrypt it if you do), you'll be safe *and* have a computer that actually runs as fast as it's supposed to.

I am using kaspersky for long time. Till now i dont have any problem with it. I think it is very good. It will slow down the system a bit, but only as McAfee.A lot of options are available in kaspersky. I also used avira earlier. It is also not bad.It is free too.

I have been using Kaspersky internet security for years and got no problems at all. But I switched to Bitdefender recently since I got trouble with the installation for the new version of Kaspersy Internet security. Bitdefender works pretty well for me too. No problems at all.

hi I did use AVG for years but my son put in some new programs that did not work with AVG so now I have free Avira which is working beautifully now. no problems at all.I had McAfee which let a terrible virus almost demolish my files and Nortons is expensive and not all that reliable so free Avira does great for me a nd is compatible with all the things I have on my computer now.

I've been using Kaspersky Anti-Virus for two years now and so far so good. :) I haven't had any malware attacks and surprisingly for a laptop that's already 2 years old, it's still very fast. I swear by Kaspersky. It's the best anti-virus software I've used so far. :)

I've used many antivirus programs : 1. AVG. Well, it was my favourite until I have to format my PC because of malware. AVG cleans the part of your files that was contaminated without erasing your files 2. Avira. This is not recommended. A lot of updates, but weak performances 3. SMADAV, is currently being used. It's quite fast and always check from outer inputs.
