Hi Vinesh! Couple of moths ago all computers in my office caught a virus named WORM SOHANAD. I tried lot of Anti-viruses, even re-installed windows 2-3 times but nothing worked. I called a computer programmer but he could also not fix it. Then, I started searching on Internet, I read many articles relating to this virus. The only anti-virus which could fix this problem was "AVIRA". I re-installed the windows then installed AVIRA and made it run. My computer was OK now. Now I have Avira installed in my computer and I do not have any problem with it. It is working perfectly fine. I would suggest you to use AVIRA for best security. You can download it from this link : www.free-av.com

avg - The best free antivirus
I am presently using AVG and it seems quite safe - its also free. I havent had any major problems in my system ever since I installed it.

Hi vinesh dont use norton ,it takes too much memory space plus not fruitful,you can try NOD32 or KAsperasky for good results.

Avast free version works great, way better than Norton and way less resources.

My rating will be 1)Avira pro 2)AVG pro 3)Kaspersky 4)bitdefender total security in addition to this, if you can have avg + spyware doctor with antivirus, then I am sure that you can get out of any mess created by virus. the best part of avg is that they update every 4 hours regards

I used Kaspersky Internet Security Antivirus because its the best out there..It can detect all types of virus even the newest ones..
