What antivirus do you use?

    Hi webmasters, can anyone recommend me a good antivirus?

    I want to buy one, but I don't know what is better, considering the security and the price.

    I use Nod32 , its the best commercial anti virus imo, it doesnt slow down your computer and picks up everything that needs to be picked up.

    Although i would recommend just the antivirus , not the firewall and everything as well . If you have a router then there is no need for the firewall

    Yeah, I have a router. I heard about nod32, that this don't require so much resource like bitdefender or other commercial software.

    I will take a look on their website to see what are their pricing. Thanks for your replay!

    I have been using Free AVG for 3 - 4 years now and its seems to work pretty good.

    Before free AVG, I use the free version of Computer Associates anti-virus, and it worked pretty good as well.

    Hi

    i currently have NIS on this PC and NAV on my old PC,i've got AVG aswell just to make sure as NAV doesnt always get the pesky things but any program is bound to miss something, might try and run both NIS and Mcafee internet security its probably overkill as SP2 has its own firewall too but its nice to know that your computer is safe

    Thanks
    Have a nice time ahead
