    I know that most Antivirus programs are not free to use in an office environment...

    I installed MSE after uninstalling the crappy McAfee Virus Scan that was on my PC as it made my PC slow like a turtle...

    Any other antivirus other than MSE is there for use in an office?

    Something better than MSE?

    I wish Avast! was free to use in an office :(

    Comodo Internet Security can be used for free, in a small to medium sized business environment.

    If you go here http://www.comodo.com/home/internet...sk1=dt&key1sk2=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.comodo.com%2F and click the Frequent Questions tab, it details the following in one of the questions

    Is it free for business users too?

    Yes. However, enterprises looking to implement Internet Security on large networks of workstations would benefit from the centralized management capabilities of Comodo Endpoint Security Manager (CESM).

    Ah thanks for the quick reply.

    So that's one option. Do you think it's better than MSE?

    Thanks

    No problem

    I think you'll be better off using Comodo Internet Security in a business environment, rather than using MSE. So yes, I do think it's better than MSE.

    Not sure if you just meant on your machine or all machines in your office berryracer.

    In an office/business you can only install MSE on up to 10 machines, after that you have to use Microsoft System Center 2012 Endpoint Protection.

    I work in a small company with like 10 PCs only...

    My PC which I sit on has McAfee Virus Scan which I uninstalled and installed MSE

    So now I am thinking of installing Comodo after the recommendations here

    I have previously deployed CIS in a small business but felt like it created almost as much work for me as removing viruses would have. :D
    I ended up with so many of its features disabled or having to make specific "exclusions" that I ended up buying Avast (50% discount at the time).

    However, if it's just your work PC, CIS should be fine as you'll be able to "play" with it as may be necessary.

    BTW, on PCs operated as 'Standard User', MSE provides good security and doesn't bug the user.

    Please try the methods described in this topic to get the full database downloaded manually. I've seen that often when users have this problem they can resolve it by downloading the first database update manually.

    Please let me know if you run into any other problems.

    Thanks.
