Which combo is preferable... 1. A KAV based scanner as 1st (resident) and other as backup (on demand). 2. Both 1st and 2nd as KAV based. 3. Neither KAV based --->Not really, just an option for those who don't like KAV. Please mention which combo, which AVs as part of it and why.... Examples... Code: I like both as KAV based... [b]KAV Pro v5 [/b]as [b]1st [/b]and [b]eScan 2003 ISS [/b]as [b]2nd[/b] OR Code: I use [b]McAfee VirusScan Corp 7.0[/b] as [b]on-access [/b]scanner and [b]eScan 2003 free (KAV engine) [/b]as [b]On-demand [/b]scanner Please mention whenever its a KAV based scanner (say Extendia AVK or eScan) 'coz for most part, I can't. And also stuff like version no., variant (pro or not) and the major reason you reccommend it (eg. NOD for speed, KAV for thoroughness etc.) I've been assailed by queries from some students as to what AV would give 'em... "Best Protection"... (yeah, like I have any clue)... And all I have is my NAV2004 which I got from a bundle for free... so naturally, I now turn to a *sort* of opinion poll.
