hi everybody i was searching the internet for an antivirus program i searched so many sites and found so many views i came across an antivirus CA etrust .this antivirus it seems is most advanced antivir program with most advanced heuristics. a few sites say Mc-afee and norton are best anti-vir wares some other say bit-defender and f-secure are top antivir programs now i also came to know that Microsoft released its own antivir(its in beta now) i came across panda,kasperky,pc-cillin etc.etc. each proclaiming that there were best. which do you think is best anti-virus which antivirus do you use [ February 15, 2007: Message edited by: dan dunst ]
For my private computer I use AVG, this is a free antivirus program, it uses not much resources. I think it is the best for free. Some of my colleagues have removed McAfee and installed AVG on their laptop, because McAfee is using much more resources.
Each number system has exactly 10 different digits.
I also use AVG for home use and have been very happy. I read recently that Microsoft-AV and one other high profile (McAffee?) failed to get certified by an antivirus group - ie they didn't work properly. (sorry, no link)
I would recommend you to use a good firewall such as Zone Alarm, plus a good AntiSpyware program such Ad-Aware and AVG as AntiVirus.
This triad would protect you against a lot of treats.
Even better. All of them offer free versions. [ February 16, 2007: Message edited by: Edisandro Bessa ]

Use FireFox, SpyBot, Ad-Aware and buy the original software CD and you are OK.
Last month a virus got into my pc and it slowly corrupted all my OS files .when i tried to format my PC , it wouldn't allow formatting. nor did it allow emergency virus scan with a bootable cd But luckily my PC was within warranty period . so i got the hard disk replaced And right now i am searching for an effective antivir software so as to protect my pc from future viruses( i read in an article from symantec security that it takes less than 1 hour for a PC connected to internet without an antivir software to get infected , ) As for firefox i read that firefox site was brought down by hackers 3 times in past month.(firefox and security? big doubt??) Anyway i dont think spyware removal tools(ad-aware,spybot) can detect viruses , if they do detect nobody would have used antivirus programs [ February 16, 2007: Message edited by: dan dunst ]
