Long time ago I use this norton but it make my computer hang. For me norton is to heavy to load long time ago. Most people say that norton is good but long time ago, norton also infected by brontok virus. So i format back my computer than i try using avast. It is nice..until now Avast Pro is my choice... :)

Hello tumhangkz, In the past I used Norton Antivirus and BitDefender 9 but I still had virus problems and because of it my system crashed when I wasn't expected to. Now I use NOD32 Antivirus and it works like a dream, my system never crashed after I put the antivirus. Take care and have a great day, ScarFace.

Yes it is. Last week a friend of mine said that I should use Avira because is better then NOD32. So I installed Avira, it made the updates and in the next 5 minutes my computer was infected with a spywear virus and Avira couldn't delete it. So I pulled out my network cable uninstall Avira and install NOD32 back. It made it's updates and deleted the spywear. So NOD32 Antivirus ROCKS. Take care and have a great day ScarFace

till now i have used quickheal, norton, AVG , Bitdefender , kaspersky. AVG is good for virus but when it comes to other malwares i doubt its performance. Norton is too heavy on ur system makes it pathetically slow. Bitdefender is really good. ANd kaspersky is all time best choice.

I am using now the Antivira AntiVir Classic Edition. This is a free software which comes with a free update everyday. So you better try it.

Before I used Norton, AVG, Mcafee and PC-cillin. but one proves to be most effective NOD32 Smart Security. nod32 really cleans my infected files and protects my pc from viruses, trojans and other malicious programs. it also has a great firewall. i really recommend this antivirus program.

Hi, Well to answer your question I do not use any antivirus software. This because my server automaticly backs up my software. Every month it does a clean install of my system and puts back my files (i need to tell it what files to backup but i just have some basic folders). This works great. I have use some antivirus software in the past. I have used mcafee, kaspersky and norton. I don't like mcafee because it seriously decreased my systems speed. As for norton they got better when they grew. Kaspersky is just strange it works fine but don't ask me how good it is (heared its one of the best). As for backing up my pc I use norton save and restore. Nice clean interface and mainly because I have my connections at norton ;) (meaning I get it for free ;)). With kind regards, MOnline

I use Avira and I think it is the best up-to-date antivirus. Recntly I have recovered form a severe virus named "Worm-SOHANAD". I searched on the internet that how can I recover my computer from it then I read the whole article on Avira's website and downloaded it. No other antivirus was working but avira worked and flushed out that Virus from my PC and now it is working fine.

I started w/ Nortons and was satisfied, but my family and I decided to switch to Avast Home Edition due to the fact that it is FREE! we are just as satisfied, if not more satisfied w/ Avast...its fast, and not very resource hungry! ~j

Yes, Now i am using Avast as my antivirus, because i think Avast is: light, efective, not using lot of RAM like norton. Since i am using Avast i'd rather longer not formating my HD, so Thanks to Avast. But also there are good av beside avast are: Kaspersky, and ESET Nod32 those are the best one but paid av.

I use AVG antivirus. Comparing all av's this product consumes less processing memory so that our system doesn't gets hung up at any overload situations.

I used AVG from Grisoft. It is free and easy to use and functions well on my computer. I can't afford Norton and any other Anti-virus software that is for sale.

The most effective antivirus program for my private use is NOD32, easy to use and truly effective! I use it for 4 years on my computer and never had any problems. In the company that i work as system administrator, we use Sophos. Great choice for bigger companies.
