Which ANTIVIRUS Works BEST on Your Computer?

January 19, 2011 4:45am CST
I've been from one Internet shop to another. I've noticed that 95% of them have an antivirus installed on each of their units. Most of them prefer to use ESET Smart or NOD 32, while others just use AVIRA or AVG. My computer, on the other hand, uses COMODO internet Security. COMODO Ineternet Security also has a free version like Avira or AVG. But the free version alone works better than ESET or Symantec. COMODO comes with the sandbox application, so whenever you run some programs, COMODO would simply notify you if the program is suspicious. It will immediately run the program inside the sandbox. COMODO is a user-friendly piece of software with a very unique interface. Ideal for both starters and advanced users.

In my opinion about anti-virus software. There is no anti-virus that I would say perfectly secure our computer. I try all kinds of anti-virus and they don't have the same understanding about viruses. This will makes me confuse because they are not completely secure the computer instead some of them created some viruses...

considering you can't arrive to 100% of security using a program or a scurity suite so in general these programs are ok as many others so avg,eset,kaspersky,macafee,avast and so on...in reality even if you installed an anti-virus you should always be careful about what you downloaded or where you surfed and so if you stay up to date with your program normally you can reach a good security level for your pc...

Hi welcome to mylot friend There are tons of the free and semi free stuff, by semifree i mean thos whic need to be bought later, have trial periods. I use Microsoft security , because i think it is the best, i had tried most of the free versions, some of them seem to be virus themselves, the paiful part is they say, it removed xxx virus, not others, they can kill uour pc etc etc, buy the registered version for total protection.. Thanks for sharing Cheers. God bless you, have a nice day ahead. Professor ‘Bhuwan’. .

I use AVG and AVAST just because they are free many people use them so their database of problems/virusus is bigger and faster and so they can detect the virus much faster than small based payed antivirus software. I don't know wich one of those two is the best, sometimes Avast sometimes Avg. But I preffer Avast because it has a gaming mode so my computer is faster while gaming and still using antivirus.

I used Mcafee virus and firewall combined on my computer. I have to pay for it each year, but it much cheaper than getting my machine fixed because of viruses that I have picked up before free anti-virus software. I have noticed that the software updates itself several times a day when I am working on my computer, and as I touch wood (superstitously), I have had not problems that I could fix with Mcafee since I have been using it, which is around 10 years now. _Derek

After using several antivirus, including buying one (Panda) I installed the free ESEt and I´m happy with it. I will not change it unless it sstarts behaving badly

Hi there, Well i haven't heard of that anti-virus before, as you say, it could be nice. But, for some reason i like to stick to AVAST, as it has always done it's job nicely and never made things hard for the computer to handle, and has never made it slow either. Before using this one, i tried AVG, Kaspersky, Norton, Mcafee, but i finally began to like the avast pro version, coz it's always run smooth and has detected virus and malicious programs in my pen drive and other external sources and i am quite satisfied with it. Next time i will have to try some other anti-virus program for some reason, i would make sure to try out COMODO. Thanks.

hard to say... i used from years of computing norton, eset, kaspersky, bitdefender, avast, avg, avira, and some other antivirus/antimalware software (some of them in the MS-DOS era), but all has his flaws or hard points... i think to try AVAST and Comodo, now...

I use cCleaner. I don't know what all it does. Mostly it erases the files I don't want to keep; maybe it does some anti-virus stuff too, and that's cool. My ISP (COX Communications) also does some anti-virus stuff ... Norton, McAfee or somethin`. That's cool too.

As a system admim i will recomend symantec only. Since it is widely used in corporate sides due to their efficiency and customer support. Free versions will work good untill u get some problem.after that u cant able to get solution or service for the same..

i think the best way to solve a virus is using "deep freeze" which is an application which restore the window when you installed it after restarting. if you install this software today it will capture your hardisk and doesnt allow anything to write in your harddisk till you want to write. i think installing this software is more worth than any other anti virus.

I have tried a lot of anti viruses on my computer. But now, I am using Avira. I do not know exactly what is the best but I prefer to use avira after trying it out. It has been two year already, ever since I have used it. I have not encountered any problems so far. Well, I think there is not such thing as a perfect anti virus. New viruses are developed form time to time. What is important is that we also update from time to time so as to insure a better protection for our computer.

It is all about what you are looking for in an anti - virus as well as your needs in terms of computer security. Each of us choose a particular anti - virus because of its features and proficiencies. But usually the most malignant viruses and malware would often be best addressed by a particular anti - virus. But this does not mean that its the best. It may be good with some viruses while not with others.

If you have a powerful pc, I'd advise Kaspersky Internet Security. It's the best I've ever tried, and the only flaw it's got is that is pretty "heavy" to run. Since I installed it, i've never had problems with viruses, spywares, hackers, keyloggers, firewall and everything else. Yes, it comes with all kind of protections, all in one software! If you have an average or slow computer, then Avira should be the way to go.
