A simple and effective anti-virus


Recommended Posts

Just thought I would throw this out there, I came across a very effective anti-virus system which uses a very small amount of system resources.

 

It is called NOD32, it is inexpensive, easy to set up, and essentially once you've installed it you never have to worry about it again. It self-updates about every 3 hours with new definitions and the program will update itself as well if you allow it.

 

Works great with scanning emails from outlook, internet sites, msdocuments, and files which you download or are already existing on your system. And I believe the only thing which has to be set up is the email scanner.

 

I used to use Norton and Mcafee, and as long as eset is around I will keep it like that.

I like ClamAV. I use it on my MacBook as well. All my other boxes however are protected with McAfee and Search & Destroy. As far as I know...... I'm well protected.

 

Plus..... Anytime I need to surf "less trafficked sites" I do so on a non-domain attached virtual machine with AV enabled. After I'm done I shutoff the VM and undo any changes made to the VM using the Undo Changes feature. This basically wipes the drive of anything that might have been placed on it.

Hi there MR.GROOVE I think that NOD 32 is very simple and Effective Anti virus and Spy ware program it for everyone but I Agree about MSE its the same as NOD 32 does the same job and stuff like that:)

 

I agree with this guy.

 

Nod32 is probably the best PAID software.

Microsoft Security Essentials is the best FREE software.

 

I still haven't had a need for an anti-virus, just gotta use common sense. It is nice knowing that something is there to catch me though if I do slip up.
