Topic: What AntiVirus do you use?

I switched from McAfee to BitDefender like a month ago and I LOVE IT! I highly recommend!

Check out this review!

Re: What AntiVirus do you use?

NOD32. It's reasonably priced & probably the fastest, least resource hungry AV application available. Also, no other AV application have recieved more 100% awards from Virus Bulletion, something that really says something about the quality... I love it smile

Avast, it's free, just like the viruses and trojans wink

Ubuntu, but with BitDefender for Linux.
On my Windows box (which I boot once a month), there's Antivir + Jetico Firewall.

Re: What AntiVirus do you use?

No antivirus here. I got a virus back in 98 or something (a boot sector virus), but that's it. No viruses, worms or malware. My recipe is:

1. Enable automatic updates.
2. Make sure Windows built-in firewall is enabled.
3. Avoid Internet Explorer and Outlook [Express].
4. Avoid [insert malware infested P2P app here].
5. Don't run .exe/.pif/.bat/.cmd/etc files you get as attachments from people you don't know smile

Voila!

Yeah, same here ... but when you have kids and when they mess around you need to have some protection.

Well, every now and then, I run an online scanner just to be sure.

Re: What AntiVirus do you use?

I don't use an antivirus program either. In my opinion, they just waste resources.

Re: What AntiVirus do you use?

I was like Rickard, basically followed the same steps as he's outlined but one day a friend came over to my house and hooked up his laptop to my network.

Since then, I run an AntiVirus on all my Windows machines.

Re: What AntiVirus do you use?

I use freeware antivirus (Avast - personal use) for my Windows systems and none for my GNU/Linux systems (but installed just for tests Clamav and F-prot  for Linux).
Funny when you think about it smile
Why ? I just don't boot on Windows and prefer to use Ubuntu and Mandriva for my daily activities !

Re: What AntiVirus do you use?

Rickard and hcgtv That was i said before i detect my computer CIH infected (before 2 month of its world shocked), after that i installed antivirus just for CIH (too old story).
