What anti virus do you use for your computer ? Why ? Did you buy it (them) or just download it ?
What do you do to protect your computer from any risky program ?
So far I am using the Antivir Antivirus. I have tried many others too. However, I find that most of the antivirus make your pc run very slow whereas Antivir is lighter. Also, the free version works fine for me.
I've used Karspersky last year..not the free one but the paid version..but then the license expired almost 4 month ago I think and I didn't renew it..at the same time I still use it like nothing happen..lol
I use Avast! antivirus. It's free and I think it's one of the better ones anyway.
McAffee and Norton are always overly strict, complaining about stupid stuff like Internet Explorer trying to access the Internet. Yes I know it's trying to access the Internet...I'm the one trying to access it. I also find them more resource demanding than Avast!.
Plus, Avast! has a pirate voice setting. You can't go wrong with that.
I use eset nod32 and I purchased it because I downloaded it and it was by far the fastest antivirus package I have seen. Most antivirus software packages that I have used slow down the PC tremendously. Eset has almost no lag.
I use Norton on my computer and laptops at home. I've tried a few but find this one the most reliable and doesn't seem to make my programs run slow like some. I downloaded it.
To tell you the truth im not using any antivirus since a years. My OS is Linux, im only typing (mainly) and i rely on other types of protection. Ad a friend of mine use to say " there is no bigger virus than your antivirus software" )))
If I am going to pay for an antivirus software for a machine I will use the ESET Nod32 it is a great antivirus software. But for free versions Free AVG is a great free anti virus software that works well.
I am using Norton on my 3 computers. I feel it is the best one for my computer. I am using it from the last 5 year. Non of the virus hit into my computer.
Norton is providing a Free tool to remove virus.
Find the steps to run the Norton Bootable Recovery Tool(NBRT).

Do you think Norton is the best anti-virus? What about webroot?

For the past 5 or 6 hours I have been dealing with some fraud and identity theft that I discovered and I'm now really weary of my online security; I hope some HP "techies" can help... I use the Windows 7 built-in firewall and I use the free version of Avast for antivirus. ...
