I used to have NOD32 but now I use AVG(but Norton came with this computer, which I got rid of).
I don't need any. I have a Mac.
AVG for me, has never let me down
QFT, I've been using it for the last 3 years, never had any problems.
Tried AVG, but it screwed over my computer, maxing out the processor and the likes. Switched to Avast and have never been happier.
avast pro. avg was good till 8 came out.
Avira AntiVir, best AV out there
And AV-Comparatives says the same
I voted other because I wanted to vote: I don't have one
But it did not happen to be an option.
I chose not to have one.
I'm running XP sp3 and prettu much I know what I'm doing so why bother with something that is going to slow down the start up of the system and limit its performance ?
I use a good firewall yes ( COMODO, and it's free) and I browse the net with Firefox with added noscript and adblock plus.
I couldn't feel safer.
Of course I don't go around downloading dubious roms or fake txt files with hidden extensions like .pdf or .exe from unknown sources off porn sites for example, that would be outright stupid.
It's been four years since I decided not to have an antivirus on my PC, and I never had a problem, not even once.
I even run a couple of malware and spyware tests every now and then ( before somebody could claim that for sure I have viruses I'm not aware of ), and I've always come out clean.
Am I smarter then the average PC user ?
That's made my day. Keep telling yourself that, you do know the first virus was on an Apple.
My AV is Bitdefender, I bought 3 licenses for a year. One for my desktop, laptop and server.
The version I have includes a Firewall as well, good price.
I went without for years but now have symantec corporate - doesn't slow hte system down like norton does.
Always thought the same as you about being careful, but when you do get them, it seems to be through things like IE exploits rather than specific viruses, i've swapped to firefox but sometimes you can be affected.
Agreed. As long as it is set up properly it works great.
nod32 for me.
NOD32. I tried to use Kaspersky, but it kept biting me back in the ass.
I don't use one because I am on a Mac!
But for my Windows PC, I have Avast!
Oh how I hate McAfee... SOOO ANNOYING! And Norton is... kind of like a strangler fig. It wraps around your computer then KILLS IT!
