My pc is acting weird, and I need to find a good anti virus program. Any recommendation?
Kaspersky is actually pretty inefficient now, it takes up way to many resources and causes a lot of drag on most systems.Kaspersky I find to be very good. It's a commercial solution though.
Actually, within the last 3 years they've put a lot of effort into increasing the security of the OS.MS makes an antivirus program? the irony!
Kaspersky by far. It's the best anti-virii on the market.My pc is acting weird, and I need to find a good anti virus program. Any recommendation?
The funny thing is that it's actually pretty damn good, and free. It is definitely the best of the 'free' options and blows a few of the paid solutions (Symantetc, I'm looking at you here) out of the water without even trying.MS makes an antivirus program? the irony!
I think we're going to have to disagree here but in all fairness, I've never used Nod32.
Kaspersky 11 is a rock solid solution. It's never failed me. Many others have.
I have the same issue with MSE, but I also use 2 other solutions that work a bit differently as well. As far as detection and the like, and intrusiveness its one of the best.
Take a look at the VB100 tests and you will see that Kaspersky is nowhere neear the best by any means. The KAV products are resource hungry and ridiculously complicated.
MSE works very well but is a bit to uninfomative for my taste. Avast 5 free version is superb and another line of protection to consider is IMMUNET http://www.immunet.com/ a free cloudbased AV which can be run alongside other AV systems.
As far as commercial solutions go, Nod is the best. They solved a lot of the issues they had with one of the older versions (Back when they had mad amounts of resource hogging).I have tried nearly all of them, and the only one I have ever had zero viral issues with the entire time using it, is NOD (Eset). It doesn't interfere with my use, it doesn't perform stupid tasks, it has caught every single thing in an email or website immediately, and even after trying to test it by running a good range of viral scanners online today, they all returned a clean result. Used it across our network for years now, still not one infection.
I've had issues with Norton, Kaspersky, McAfee & AVG at periods during use, and once I have an issue, I usually don't go back with something as important as antivirus. Don't get me wrong, some are decent, but I wanted a truly hidden antivirus that didn't bother me at all, and NOD does it. IMHO... many existing big names are only still trading on the brand that is aimed at the home user.
I run open source software (Ubuntu) because there's no way to see what's running in Windows. I don't trust to enter my passwords there.My pc is acting weird, and I need to find a good anti virus program. Any recommendation?
