    Which is the best Antivirus in your computer?

    I am using Norton Antivirus. I liked it. Norton is best because it traps all malicious activities and also none of the new viruse can infect the norton files. it has a self protection in it.

    I've been using ZoneAlarm with Antivirus for what must be almost a year now , and I have had no problems with it at all. It uses ComputerAssosiate's antivirus engine, and has detected two 'viruses so far,' they were just websites that had mal intentioned scripts in them and it stopped them, so all in all, I feel it's a good a/v. To top it all off, you know you have one of the best (in my opinion) firewalls around to add those extra layers of security. I'm also a believer in the motto that the best form of virus protection is the user themselves, though I can see how in certain situations, this is not always possible.

    This is a hot topic. I think all of us have our own choice. It will take only a poll to find out which one tops the list. My personal choice is aVast, which is a great product, I have found myself protected by it and not to mention it is free.

    I have Avast too :) . It's capable, hip, and best of all, free. You just have to register it for a 1-year license. It's been with me for 3 months now and it was able to strain viruses coming in from LAN and the net.

    I have always used McAfee and to me that works well, but it can be irritating at times and be too overprotective, I also think that norton works great as well.

    I use AVG 7.5. It uses very little CPU resources and robust enough to kill virus.

    I bought System Mechanic Professional 7. System Mechanic is good, but iolo's AV and Firewall suck.

    I use kasperksy and it's good on catching virusses so far. But it eats my computer resources sometime. I use AVG before (free), always updated but I still get virusses. I installed Kasperksy and the problem is done perfectly. That's my experience with two AVs, never use other programs.
