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 use ClamAV. It's a nice feature set and runs on my MAC and Windows boxes at home.

 

I first installed it about 3 months ago when I needed something for my MAC I just bought. I liked it so much I threw it on my Windows box at home.

 

Never looked back ;) however I still use Search and Destroy on my Windows boxes.

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.

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.

agreed. I can't remember the last time I got a virus. That being said, I'd rather be safe than sorry and at the very minimum, keep a free AV package on my box at all times.
