i use ESET NOD32 because it is exactly what i want, a free, no frills, virus checker without the firewall as most firewalls built in with virus checkers are kinda dodgy,
for my firewall program i use COMODO Firewall Professional, a free firewall program which is highly advanced for you computer techs, yet mere mortals like me can use it. It also comes with a virus checker as a bonus, and other handy features
also just to be safe i have Spybot Search and Destroy a free spyware program
i also occasionaly use Windows Defender

I am verry paranoid as you can see Very Happy

I use AVG because in my vast experience, any other program fucks up your computer. (Perhaps you don't realise this because you're not at a level in which to notice)

McAfee and Norton are the worst perpetrators of this. I always recommend to people that they completely remove them from their systems and use AVG.

At the end of the day 95% of the time it's the users fault they got a virus, it doesn't matter what software you're using, if you download something dodgy then that's it, you've got a virus.

I'm using Kaspersky. It only cost me ~25 bucks to get a licence and now I don't worry about viruses anymore.They simply avoid me.

Eset - never heard of it
Norton - annoying... makes my PC lag
McAffe - fine... can't say it anything bad, but I don't like it.
AVG - free version SUCKS! McAffe/Norton/Kaspersky always find something even after using it.
Trend Micro - didn't like it... takes ages to scan my PC.

I use AVG, it got rid of a virus I had and several other things that I had before that one which Norton hadn't found.

That's the free version.

In my experience, Norton SUCKS.

I use McAfee, as it came free with my broadband. It does a decent job of blocking any software trying to connect to the internet, but it's simple to allow the programs access if I know they're safe. It's also easy to see the location of any shady programs which may have found their way on to my pc (Sometimes happends, unfortunately I have no common sense).

Though whenever I open up the "security center" (the main controls and...other stuff) it tells me I am not protected, and to click the 'fix' button. When I click it, nothing happens. And every so often a message pops up telling me that I'm not fully protected because I haven't registered my software, so a button appears which should lead me to the registration form. When I click it, nothing happens.

But meh, it's free.

I know it's craziness...But I have no Virus-Checker on my current laptop at the moment.

The laptop is probably 5 years old and was given to me by my father. It wasn't until last week that I noticed there was no Virus Checker.

I've had it for a few months now, thank god it hasn't crashed Very Happy

have you heard the news about AVG? apperently they've programmed it that saw some file the system32 map as a virus and deleted it. Now many ppl have problems with their computer that they can't fix due to this.
