So me and my brothers are getting a new computer and Norton has been nothing but trouble in the past, so I'm not trying to deal with that. What anti-virus software should I get instead? AMG? McAffee? Other?
Like Norton is the best anti-virus EVAR! /joke I'd have to say Panda.
Avast!
Common Sense
Avast free is the best free anti virus you can get. [url]http://www.avast.com/en-eu/index[/url] Hi avast! team, after some internet research and reading good reviews of your antivirus software, I plumped for AVAST. Both my wife and I really like the simplicity of AVAST and feel reassured when the AVAST voice notifies us when the updates have been completed rather than having to go through a sequence of button pushing to clear the screen. I have also noticed that our computers are allowed to do what they do best, without the irritating interruptions or slow downs. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK and grateful thanks for your free Home software.

Install, register and forget.
NOD32 if your fine with paying. My brother who ruined Windows twice in half a year have been going smoothly with NOD32 for a year now.
Avast! or esest nod32
Avast! adbot... Microsoft Security Essentials is good too.
AVG It's user friendly.
money isn't an issue
ESET NOD32 Antivirus
If money isn't an issue get Nod32. If you want something for free get Microsoft Security Essentials.
nod32
Payed: NOD32 Free: Microsoft Security Essentials
[QUOTE=Zeb Brown;23451256]AVG It's user friendly.[/QUOTE] I don't think an AV that deletes all of your Mozilla cookies randomly because it thinks they're tracking cookies is "user-friendly." I use Cookieculler to remove all cookies that aren't related to the sites I visit and even then it would delete all of my saved cookies and I'd have to input all of my passwords over again.
I'm gonna jump on the NOD32 bandwagon :3, it's awesome and I get free copies from work. the free option would be Avast or MSE, I haven't used other AVs but I've never had a problem with these so I highly recommend them.
I like Microsoft Security Essentials.
[QUOTE=hl2poo;23459925]I like Microsoft Security Essentials.[/QUOTE] TBH, MSE is only good for real-time protection.
comodo and avg or nod32 make an unstoppable force
Avast works fine for me, although the only website I really visit is Facepunch, and occasionally Facebook and gamecopyworld for no CD patches. [editline]11:58PM[/editline] In fact I think Avast! is a little overkill for me, because I'm not retarded.
I think Norton is pretty good :(
AVG for free, Norton for paying
[QUOTE=~Kiwi~;23460969]Norton[/QUOTE] Heck no. That thing's a massive resource hog.
SuperANTISpyware. Free, lite, powerful. It's pretty much the best. Unfortunately, you can't run scheduled scans unless you buy the pro version. That's the only downside.
Panda and NOD32.
Comodo [IMG]http://localhostr.com/files/23c83c/capture.png[/IMG] [url]http://www.matousec.com/projects/proactive-security-challenge/results.php[/url] [editline]02:45PM[/editline] [QUOTE=B1N4RY!;23461314]Heck no. That thing's a massive resource hog.[/QUOTE] It used to be. Right now it's one of the lightest and most effective suites.
