      I don't use anything. Simply when my PC get ripped off, I back up using Norton Ghost.

        I switched to AVG after I was getting nocd cracks being replicated in a folder in systems 32 a few years ago, that Norton failed to detect and remove. AVG detected it, removed it and also found two trogens also that norton failed to detect. I hate norton - it's a resource hog and it's rubbish.

        I hear good things about NOD32 (I hear its the best Av out there, not a free one though).

        That "Antivir" sounds interesting.

          I don't need any anti-virus software out there. I use a Mac, so I don't have to worry about a single thing.

            Permission to execute this virus? Allow or deny? Denied.

              I use AntiVir for years. It's free, it finds nearly everything (okok, besides the false alerts) and the guys are really quick with updating their servers for auto-update when discovering a new virus or worm.

                The corporate version of Norton SAV. The bloatware offered to home-users is evil.

                  I used Norton for years even though it was always bloated and caused problems. However the final straw was Norton 360. I had nothing but problems with it every day and I blame it for destroying my hard drive and losing tons of data which I mistakenly thought I had good backups of.

                  Based on the recommendation of a colleague I switched to the paid version of AVG (for 5 PCs) but their technical support is awful (up to 2-3 days to get a response) and I still cannot get it to run properly on my laptop. They just keep telling me to do the same thing over and over again, as if it's going to have different results this time. Looks like a waste of money to me.

                    Oh, I feel for you, Steve!
                    As a comparison, I too run Norton SAV on 5 PCs, and it runs flawlessly. No problems no matter what I'm compiling and whatnot. The update script runs hourly (cronjob)and I've yet to get a hint of a problem, be it virii or otherwise, going on 14 years now.

                    No, no joke. Knock on wood, the thing has been very kind to me.

                          None

                          Managed to not have any viruses in the last 3 years without any Anti Virus program.

                            Avast home edition, free, and lighter than Norton. Their support forums helped me also when I thought I had a virus. They were very nice.

                              I changed mine from "Panda Internet Security 2008" because when I was going on the forum my username is not active and its using the usergroup "Ex-Member", So I cant use there forum so I cannot pay them for the software.

                              Now I use "Microsoft Windows Live OneCare" and I am very happy with it.
