Just wanted to get some opinions from all you guys.

What do you guys think is the best antivirus program out there?

I mean, which is the least intrusive, most efficient (ie. not a resource hog), that provides the best protection?

Anyone?

mcafee and Norton are pretty good. they run in windows system and fully integrated with windows and office xp. takes a bit of ram but no cpu cycles.

I use Norton Anti-Virus 2002 it works great, I don't notice a big performance change, and as long as u use live update often it'll catch those pesky virus'

Also a NAV 2002 user, my machine is not connected to internet, so I just download the updates from Symantec's site. Works great!

NAV2002 as well here.........it integrates with your email client and checks your attachments for virii before the attachments are downloaded to your computer. If your live update runs out, its not hard to find a crack that will revive it if you dont mind doing that sort of thing

I've had mixed results with NAV2002. It was part of the Norton Internet Security package, and I couldn't use one machine until I went into safemode and deleted the norton directories. It's probably just me, but that doesn't instill a whole lotta confidence in this one for the first time since I've been using it.

I use KasperskyLabs *Anti-Viral ToolKit Pro* latest version.
Also NeoWatch 2.4 by neoworx.com (recently bought buy McAfee for having such skill products)

The AVP updates daily which is really good, Even found some virus in a webpage the other day (thankgod)
Even if I was infected with a trojan or some remote software, nothing can get past NW because I have it set too TIGHT security (Can't even recieve files on IRC, MSN, ping requests, connect to AudioGalaxy etc etc

Nice free and good

Neo Watch is Availible at (EDIT BY APK FOR LINK TO WAREZ/CRACKS SITE, SORRY RULES!)
Kaspersky AVP PR0 can be found on KaZaA (You might need to get some keys : (EDIT BY APK BECAUSE OF WAREZ/CRACKS CONTENT)

dump norton's...get Kaspersky

hey now,

norton and macfree are crappy antivirus programs. i strongly encourage you to download and try Kaspersky's Antiviral Toolkit. you can get it at http://www.avp.ch . give it a shot. norton and macfree are not very effective at removing all of a virus. it'll get the main virus but will often leave virus bodies on your computer. Kaspersky's is the way to go.

i've yet to install xp
nice suggestions, but the best protection is not being a dumb-ass user, download-run-download-run-infected-format-download-run-download-run-download-run-infected-format... sucks!
:p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p

Norton 2002 is exellent - specially if you intend on using Outlook for e-mail - as it will creat a mail proxy before windows can get to it.

I don't trust McAfee any longer - even tried the latest version - I think that catching a virus with it is a fluke - getting up-dates is a pain and requires a re-boot all the time.

I have also heard that NOD32 is really good.

Norton 2002 here ;)
McAfee seems a bit bulky, as a far as a know.

The Norton will scan your incoming & outgoing mail, so it's really save to use Outlook/Express and the uninterrupt updating Virus Definition fuction is also good.

Norton Antivirus Corporate Edition 7.6

I like NAV Corp 7.6 personally, also The Cleaner, and Trojan Remover, and last but not least OnTrack Fix-It Utilities 4.0 which includes antivirus, only Norton runs in the background, and once a week I hop over to http://www.housecall.antivirus.com and also do an online snan. Never have troubles with any of them and continue to remain virus free. ;o)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
