Recommendations on Antivirus software?
Posted 11 July 2004 - 05:54 AM
My anti virus subscription with Norton soon runs out, so i am looking for a new anti virus provider (although i have no problem with using Norton again). I cannot simply upgrade because my version is too old. I do not mind paying a bit in order to get good quality protection.
Does anyone have any recommendations?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

1. KAV http://www.kaspersky.com
2. NOD32 http://www.nod32.com.au
Some good freebies:
1. Avast! http://www.avast.com
2. Antivir http://www.free-av.com
3. AVG already mentioned by Dave38
I use a free anti-virus along with my main anti-virus (not that you couldn't use a free anti-virus on its own- just my preference). Just make sure all scanners are diabled in the free one and use it as an on-demand scanner only, if your using a second anti-virus. I prefer Avast! as the best free anti-virus.
Another thing you could try is use two free anti-viruses together. Just make sure you disable all scanners in one and use the other as your main. Also you could try some of the free online virus scanners for another opinion.

I have not used Nod32 yet.
I might test it and add it to my AV detection test post, which should soon include tests on 3,000+ virus/trojan/exploit infected test files instead of the 35 or so that I have been using.
