+ 0 Votes AVG All the way drwain 2 years ago AVG Internet Security 2011 (2012 is in Beta) I use it myself with zero infections and also use it in the field to remove infections from systems that are 'supposedly' protected by other AG products....regularly. Support here in Australia is second to none. There is a AVG Free version but does not have as many features. Still better than many paid products. I once had a user of Norton say how pleased he was with Norton because when his computer got a virus they only charged him $200 to remote into his computer and remove the virus.....WT? + 0 Votes 30 DAY TRIALS ARE BAD drwain 2 years ago As an IT consultant I and finding that the 30 day trial periods that are pre-loaded on machines now and worse than having nothing. At least if the machine has no AV pre-installed then action can be taken. With pre-installed AV the user sees the familiar icon on the desktop and...30 days later...they think they are still protected. I am seeing so many of these cases, and the ones who have 3 or 4 different 30 day trials installed - together - all expired! Keeps me in business though. + 0 Votes Sophos Matthew Lawson 2 years ago I have been using the Endpoint Security and Control suite for over five years. I have it deployed at many different client sites. Set it up and forget it about it. It allows you to focus on security at the edge. + 0 Votes Yes - Sophos a real winner itboss 2 years ago in a Network or Corporate environment Sophos is the best been using it for years Central Consol great interface & their Support is 5 Star Plus ( it's the Support that counts at the end of the day ) + 0 Votes best anti-virus? keithm2576 2 years ago Agree with others, define best! I have had experience will all major and some lesser a-v programs and have yet to find one that is anywhere near 100%. I have had clients with infections that got through all major brands (e.g. Norton, McAfee, CA, Trend, AVG). Vigilance is the only defense, constant monitoring. You can also check sites such as http://www.av-comparatives.org/en/comparativesreviews/detection-test for comparison tests. Interesting that some of the lesser and free ones are often near the top (e.g. Avast, Avira, AVG Free). And I would be lost without malwarebytes! + 0 Votes Which continent develop "Virus" most? joelajamu 2 years ago If you can answer the question above, you will probably get the best answer for question on which antivirus is the best. Check the McAfee's research "Operation Shady RAT". The research suspected an intrusion from a part of the world. To hit the nail on the head, I think you need to go to china ask of rising, etc + 0 Votes Linux or OSX... rmycroft2000 2 years ago Seriously, it is as if MS decided to create a whole new industry that works at trying to keep viruses off of their largely poorly secured systems. At home about every 18 months with Windows I wind up reinstalling the OS on my daughter's machines WITH an anti-virus product installed. On the two shared machines, Windows and a Mac no problems and no av software installed. + 0 Votes ESET Nod 32 Antivirus Deusofnull 2 years ago About a year back my company conducted a massive search for an antivirus program we could support fully on our client computers. We looked through dozens. The best program we found is an Antivirus from ESET called Nod 32. We dont have any issues with it on any of our client computers. I personally haven't seen a computer get infected whilst running Nod32. Not to say that its impossible to get a virus with this program active, it just seems to be the most secure option we have found. However, its not free. I believe its $40 a year for the full package. Good luck with this! + 1 Votes Ford? Chevy? Toyota? Honda? oldbaritone 2 years ago Q: What's the "best" Anti-virus? A: The one that does what you need it to do, effectively, with the least impact on system resources, performance and throughput. After that, it's just brand preference. + 0 Votes The best anti-virus kaugustine505 2 years ago In my experience there isn't any one stand alone antivirus that is the best. Now, if your looking for free- I like to use the combination of Microsoft security essentials with either Panda Cloud Antivirus or Immunet 3.0... If looking for a calmer peice of mind Use NOD32 with either Panda Cloud Antivirus or Immunet 3.0. and scan weekly with spybot search & destroy. I understand that many IT professionals will have negative comment on my approach on virus security but this method has worked very very well for me.
