    Most antivirus products have a high degree of protection from malware. Actually some, better then most antispyware products themselves. If you could only choose 1 antivirus product to go with a Nat router, which would you choose and why. And not a suite, just a AV.

    Nod32.....no more and no less! ;) Why? It should be good enough, as far as I'm concerned, especially with the new 2.7!

    Latest Avira, Nod, Kav or BitDefender. I would feel quite well protected with any of these.

    :thumb: KAV, without a doubt. Time-tested, it is the best. :)

    My point of view:
    -With a HIPS isolating/virtualizing the web apps.(mail client, browsers, etc) Antivir Classic is more than enough
    -Without that kind of HIPS you need an AV with web shield and integrated antispyware. NOD 32, KAV, BD, Antivir Premiun, AVG Antimalware or Avast free would be my choices

    KAV and F-Secure. Nothing wrong with NOD or Avira. In the final analysis it depends upon which one runs best on your system.

    After those I would go with Avast Home, or AVG free.

    I would choose NOD32 because it is small , fast, reliable , excellent proactive protection ... Frisk's F-prot is also very good


    For more and acurate information , read AV-Comparatives.org

    dont forgot antistealth technology.
    my dad forgot to order kaspersky again.
    this time i told him there is no way in hell we are using f-secure again.
    but if he doesnt order kaspersky i will just install nod32 instead.

    Of course I haven't forgotten it . It's just I haven't mentioned it because some people may then blame me that I advertise some particular products . Pointing AV-Comparative.org takes me out of such arguments ;)

    Nice evening :thumb:

    My dad uses NTL's NetGuard on his laptop. I've messed with it and it appears pretty easy to use, has some good features. The only problem is whether it's a re-badged product and just how good is it? I'd love to see a test or two and how it does.

    Btw, he's 73 and if he can use it then it must be easy to use!

    i tried it last night,

    yeah dont use ntl netguard, yeah its extremly simple but its poor, found loads of FP's on my machine and then it wouldnt shut down when i tried un-installing it, it messed my registry and i had to go through regedit to remove it, erm ... no thanks.

    i also found it slowwww too boot, slow to scan and slowwww to change the options.

    Hi muf,
    "Btw, he's 73 and if he can use it then it must be easy to use!"

    Now you are about to get in trouble!

    Avast, has all the protection modules and even protects networks from common exploits.
