    Hey guys. I hope I'm not being irritating by being one of many posting topics asking for the "best AV program". However, I wasn't sure whether an av request specified to my video editing needs has been answered.

    What would be the best av for a video editing machine w/ these specs?

    P4 2.8GHz @ 3.7GHz
    1GB DDRAM
    36GB 10000RPM boot drive
    120GB 7200RPM Media Drive
    Win XP Pro

    Thanks!

    It really doesn't matter since no AV scans video/audio files unless you set to scan All files regardless its type.

    Right.
    Generally speaking, scanning A/V files (wav,avi...) is useless.
    Depending of your purposes and your goal (need a reactive system or ensure maximum protection), NOD32 would be the right stuff since editing video or audio requires horsepower.
    It would be bad to slow down your PC too much with a ressources hog AV.

    Cheers

    Command antivirus might be worth looking at also, fast, small footprint, very effective and inexpensive. Info can be found here

    I will choose NOD32. I have it in my graphic station, and works really fine.
    If you have a recent processor, you can try eXtendia AVK Antivirus, which have two engines and left a light footprint on your system (unfortunately there´s no trial for this software).
    Don´t forget other security software like TDS3, SpywareBlaster, Spybot S&D, and Lavasoft Ad-Aware. Since I have this soft I got my pc clean in all the ways. Most of it is free, updatable and non resident. A must have on!

    I'm sorry to double post but, what are the fees if you were to renew your subscription for both products?

    Not exactly sure what both means, so I'll try to cover everything mentioned....


    NOD32: new license - $39.00; 1 year renewal - $27.30
    eXtendia AV (KAV/RAV): new license - $29.95; 1 year renewal - $24.95
    Command AV: new license - $29.95 ($14.95 sale right now); 1 year renewal ??

    Generally, the market seems to go with anywhere from 30-50% off the base price for a renewal. eXtendia is a little different - capturing the sale up front with a low lead-in price and a "typical" renewal charge - by typical I mean $20-$30/year for a pay AV solution, which seems to cover the majority of cases.

    mVPstar - Is this what you were looking for?

    Yes, thankyou. That is exactly what I'm looking for.

    Why do you need to purchase a new license? Or is that just for if you want to deploy the AV to multiple computers?
