    Hi,

    I don't know what the difference between normal antivirus and corporate edition one is? for example, Norton AV 2007 and Norton AV Corporate Edition -> what different in terms of effectiveness? Can install a Corporate Edition in my home pc? and how effective is it compared to the normal one for the home pc?

    Thanks!

    corporate versions are less ram, quicker updates and more configurations.

    however, corporate versions look a little 'cheap', they dont come with the bells and whistles, they just do their job.

    yes you can install corporate if you like on a home machine.

    KAV or NOD32. Theyre corporate version are mostly like the home versions :D

    Theres also Symantec's AV Corp. Ed. and F-Secure's Anti-Virus for Workstations. they provide excellent detection rates and the less flashy GUI is nice.

    those are the ones id try myself, id probably swing towards f-secure more though.

    but try them and find out which suits you best if you want to go down the corporate road.

    If it applies, choose the one that your workplace/College can provide to you for free as part of the site license.

    Thanks a lot, I may go for F-secure since Symantec isn't my cup of tea:D

    I haven't tried F-Secure in a few years but it used to take quite a powerful system to run, it puts a lot of drag on the system to run the multiple scanners. They may have fixed it recently though, so give it try. Recently I also saw a rather long trial for them somewhere, I think it was for 3 or 6 months, not sure which.

    F-Prot has an incredible Corporate AV. One license for up to 10 PCs.

    F-Prot is also one of the lightest AV's available. Configuration is simple, Heuristics are excellent. Hard to beat in my opinion.

    I tried it, but I'm NOT happy. It has really slow start-up. It creates so many processes in Task Manager :mad:
