I use Zonealarm for firewall and Avast antivirus as an antivirus program. Both are free and pretty good compared to the Norton 2003 I had before them.

I've been using AVG Free for several weeks, and never been bothered with a virus yet.  

It takes up less than 2MB of memory, which is quite absurd.  Even my CPU temperature tracker takes up twice as much memory.

I have been using AVG free for years now, and never had any problems with viruses. Although I'm too smart for not search random porn sites and open suspicious e-mails, so I guess my AVG never has been put on a real test.

I've tried NOrton, McAfee, PC Cilin, Avast and Zone Alarm.
I say that Zone Alarm is by far the best, it finds every viruses and is very light on memory usage. After ZA I'd pick Avast and PC Cilin.
 
McAfee was good but this last version full of bugs and uses A LOT of your machine, well and there's is norton which is worse than nothing.

Post by: ferrar1 on January 18, 2007, 04:35:47 PM
I think ZA is overrated. Taking up too much memory nowadays.

I personally go for AVG for antivirus and Outpost for firewall.

Btw, if you can choose only 1, which would you guys go for? firewall or antivirus?

Yes, and everything you download you are sure has no virus/trojan/etc.??

Most ADSL/Cable modems have a firewall build-in these days, so if you pick only one, pick a virus scanner!

I've thought about trying out NOD32, just haven't yet, still been using AVG which has been good.
I like that, with AVG, I can right-click dled rar's and zip's and have AVG scan them, something I always do.

Good bit torrent trackers don't have virus's or trojan's in their files and most of them has a option to comment the torrent so it's pretty easy to check that it's ok.

Title: Re: What Anti-Virus do you use?
Post by: ~Dan~ on August 05, 2009, 03:51:12 AM
I don't use one.  I just use common sense.
Use a decent browser (anything but IE).
Don't open email attachments (but be careful if you do open any).
If I download software that's not from a trusted site I'll use an online scan.  I used to use housecall (http://housecall.trendmicro.com/) but since the version of java was updated it won't work for me any more so I found BitDefender (http://www.bitdefender.com/scanner/online/free.html) do an online scan so I use that one now.

In 9 years I've had 3 viruses, 1 was when I'd only had my pc 1 week (and it was a rubbish virus that didn't do anything) and the other 2 from a Japanese p2p prog.  Oh, and I got a dialler from Robb's Celebs (that site was full of them) but I'm on broadband not connected to a phone line so that was another fail.

I'd link to the actual report but you would have to register to see it. Though Symantec seems a little defensive about the results.

I'm surprised this has not been mentioned yet on this thread. But keep your software updated as well. It might be obvious to some but it should be mentioned anyways. Especially with 3rd party apps like Flash, Firefox, Adobe PDF reader and the like. The OS itself is becoming a harder target these days and black hats are increasingly picking holes in popular 3rd party apps rather than trying to take down the whole OS.

AVG Anti-Virus is free.
ZoneAlarm Firewall is free.
Windows Firewall is free and built-in to any modern version of Windows.

If I had to turn one off or the other, I'd go without the firewall - but I can't see why I'd bother going into the Windows security settings to turn it off, by default it protects just fine.

I didn't have one for a while which was a big mistake, but as soon as I d/led AVG again it cleaned them out right away :heart:

I hate Norton with a passion, its like having your parent follow you everywhere you go on a Saturday night & they are constantly whispering in your ear that each club you enter & drink you have might possibly be unsafe! Norton hates everything, it just gets in my way :lol:

I use avast!, even though it seems to have a propensity for triggering false positives quite a bit. This has only happened once in the past year and a half (a couple of weeks ago when it flagged an Adobe component as a virus), but early last year it seemed every month or so some innocuous file would be flagged, throwing me into a tizzy.

Honestly...avast! flagged the Windows Movie Maker installer as a trojan at one point last year. The Windows Movie Maker installer that came with Windows, mind you.

I use Virtualbox to run all new programs that I don't trust completely. Virtualbox is a "virtual" PC that lets you install Windows and other operating systems. If a virus infects the OS in Virtualbox I simply revert the entire virtual machine to a previous state or delete it and create a new one. I reccomend at least 2GB of RAM to run it though since it doesn't share any RAM between the host and the OS it is running in the virtual machine. Virtualbox can run some but not all 3D games and it has a fullscreen mode.

This it not an Anti-Virus software, more like an Anti-Virus strategy.

Here's an interesting study done recently testing out most of the top anti-virus programs.

It rates them based on their detection rate, how quickly they could scan, and how many false positives they generated.

Currently, I'm using the free version of AVG.  I've tried some others in the past, but don't remember seeing huge differences in them.  I'm not exactly sure why I'm using AVG now, actually.  :)  It seems like most of the freely available anti-virus programs are similarly effective, so any one is probably good.

Hi All,
I run ZenOK Free Antivirus (http://freeantivirus.zenok.com/url)  on two PC's and on my laptop, the free editions, it has given me excellent protection, for eg, my kids bring their school projects home on USB flash sticks, as soon as they plug in the sticks the anti virus shows the infections from the school pc,s
my pc's just to confirm the virus and spyware protection, so far so good,

Regards

Microsoft Security Essentials ftw  8)

It's been said before but better than any anti-virus is a firewall/router, updated software (esp. flash, java and the browser, since anti-virus doesn't help you if they have flaws people exploit) and some caution with opening email attachments.

I'm echoing MSE. I can't recommend AVG anymore after I've seen viruses rip through it like it was nothing (ransomware that actually deleted AVG and tried to sell a fake AV). No problems with MSE on the 6 computers I manage yet.

Full version of Avast! on my desktop and Norton on my laptop. Liking the Avast! better than the norton. I think norton takes too much of the memory and slows the computer.

opinion... its sometimes annoying because if you want to play a new installed games you need to disable it first T_T (ah well i downloaded the game so i guess the 'crack' is thought to be a virus or maleware)

This both thing protect my comp since I started to use them. Easy to use and it's FREE!
