If you've got a strong rig & don't play too many games, it might do alright...

    I must admit, I am curious about what this topic turns up. I haven't been able to play online for almost a year, ever since a virus hit my computer hard. I have anti-virus now, Trend Micro Internet security which seems to do alright. I had Zone Alarm before the virus hit, which expired shortly before the attack. That did alright, it let my rig play Battlefields 2 & 2142 online, but as soon as it expired, it let the virus through & picked it up during a scan, deleting the Windows Start up file it was hiding in.

    I think that's the most help I can be for now. I'm curious to see what else comes up...

    Sorry to say, but Norton isn't worth it, from personal experience all of their "anit-virus" programs actually put viruses on your cpu or just let them go by without trying to stop them

    Microsoft Security Essentials

    i know M$ gets a bad rap, but i've used it for over 7 months, on vista, xp, and 7 even during beta, it rules. low on CPU, never noticable, and i downloaded 5 obviously virus-ridden things from limewire and it did catch them all immediately

    there are a lot of antivirus software out there. However I would say from my own standpoint, that a good antivirus needs to be very light, very complete when it comes to online protection. There are a lot of malware sites that can infect your websites with a lot of viruses and collect your data and files using spyware tools. So I guess there's quite a lot to tell. I've been using the latest version of ZenOK Free Antivirus and it's working for me

    I use Malbytes. Works pretty damned well for what I need it for.

    The best is Norton, it removes and prevents viruses (just like most other anti virus software's). It refreshes every 15 minutes or so to check if anything occurred. I tested it out by putting a Trojan on a trash desktop of mine and it caught it and removed it within seconds. Its not free but I strongly recommend it.

    I guess we can't say the best antivirus is "blah" or "blah"
    the thing is every computer user should pick the antivirus that best suits his needs, I mean U might say McAfee or Norton is the best, but others would go with NOD coz with less price they can get what they need, the thing is when choosing an antivirus U should check your priorities and needs
