Anti Virus Programs

Postby sox 06 » Fri Jan 05, 2007 5:00 pm

I'm currently using Yahoo!'s Anti Spy and another program called CCleaner. Does anyone know of any anti virus programs that work well? I tried Windows Defender but it didn't do too much.

I use Norton.

For ad-ware i use ad-aware and it does the trick, and its free.

At work we use McAfee, but I think it's an Enterprise version that you don't get for home. I've heard pretty good things about McAfee, and I've heard some people have some pretty big issues with Norton, especially their Internet Security 2005/2006 stuff.

All free stuff...

CCleaner is good for getting rid of all the clutter Windows collects
AVG Anti-virus does the best job for a FREE anti-virus
AVG Anti-Spyware does a great job of finding malware like worms and backdoors
Ad-aware and Spybot Search and Destroy - it sucks to have 2 programs that do the same thing, but one program will sometimes catch something other program didn't, or avg anti-spyware didnt.
Zone Alarm the best free firewall available.

AVG will no longer be free in 2007. I used to have it, but for the past couple of months, after an update, I got popups asking me to purchase their upcoming new version. Pity, as it was one of the better anti-virus programs besides also being free.


There are a few free online scanners though. PandaSoft and TrendMicro are two of the bigger ones I know of that offer a free online scan. And unlike the online scanner from McAfee, the ones from PandaSoft and TrendMicro actually remove stuff instead of just listing what virii you have and asking that you purchase the software.

Norton or Symantic is :-t

Crashed both my sisters and my hard drives when trying to do the yearly update.


Use McAfee now. ;-D

McAfee is free for Comcast internet users.

I have McAfee, but it's expired and I'm real cheap ;-7 So I'm sort of looking for a decent free program. ;-D
