    If you are asking about an antivirus (not a security suite) you must try NOD32 (after trying many many antivirus (kaspersky, bitdefender ...) I choosed this one) it don't take many ressources (cpu, ram), and it really detect viruses instantly ....

    Check it at : http://www.eset.com/

    ps: a nod32 security suite is in work

    But if you are talking about a security suite just wait a little bit, zonealarm 7 is still in beta now but will be soon out, and it'll be really unbeatable ( use zonelarm firewall and kaspersky engine as antivirus).

    that's all folks

    If you want a free program go with AVG. Once you configure it after installation, you never have to worry again. Avast as well. They are the best, least invasive 2 that I have found. Just make sure not to have 2 antivirus products on your computer at the same time.

    There's really no good way to analyze the quality unless you want to test tons of viruses with a bunch of different software. Most of the major ones you hear of are pretty good. Just pick one, install it, and you shouldn't ever have much to worry about unless you download porn, click on stupid banners, and send greeting cards.

    most virus are spread through IE. IE is not a safe browser. you should use a more secure browser to protect your PC from virus.

    i recommand you to use firefox with Google toolbar. firefox can block any any popup and disable any virus and adware, spyware on webpage, so, firefox is much safer than IE browser. as you know, most of virus spread throught internet and webpage.

    besides, firefox is much smaller than IE, so it run faster than IE.

    download firefox for free, Just have a try:


    Merry Xmas !!! Happy NewYear !!!
