    It really isnt fair to us, the consumer, to keep using products that have "bugs" when their job is to find "bugs". So just what products do work as you expect without having to over look a tisk or task with them. Here are mine.

    Dr. Web
    Antivir PE
    Nod32- and not the buggy suite
    Sandboxie
    Norton Internet Suite
    Superantispyware
    OA2
    take it from here.

    Dr Web
    Antivir PE and Premium
    Superantispyware Pro
    Prevx
    Nod32
    Avast Home


    These have all worked for me with no bugs or slowdown, they are fantastic software and you can tell they put alot of hard work into them!:D

    So far avast! seems to be the most problem free in all areas. Followed by NOD32. Others seem to have whole bunch of problems here and there, be it graphical, detection or update problems... though it also depends on the system itself.

    Avast! Home and I have others, but haven't run them quite long enough to mention them by name. My sig contains some hints though ;)

    Avast! definetly.
    SSM free is fine until now, but the rolled back version (583). the 584 version was buggy.
    LookNStop, Comodo (some report problems but i don't have them), SandboxIE, Spybot. There are others, but i remember these right now.

    Prevx is almost there. The problem is that it's unique.

    Hi. :)

    All my programs work fine. If they don't, I don't use them. :)

    FWIW, there's a similar (almost identical) thread here, just a few days old...

    Regards.

    I would add F-Prot, AVG anti-Malware, and maybe Bullguard 7 to this list.

    I will agree with The Seer, because if my apps didn't work like they were supposed to they wouldn't be on my comp. All of my security apps do work as advertised.:thumb:

    The applications that I use are pretty much trouble free, or I would also not use them.
    However, if I think of those that have had zero problems it would be limited to Avast Home, NOD, and SuperAntiSpyware. Others required some tweaking to get them to run well, but not much. AntiVir is close, as is F-Secure. F-Prot did not cause problems, but I only trialled it for about 2 weeks.

    AVG and NOD32 antivirus have always worked flawlessly for me. I've used avg for many years with no problems, nod32 for about a year with no problems.

    Pretty much all the software I try (and I try whatever I get my hands on almost) work as advertised out of the box. The list would be too long and boring to print out here.
    Imo, since I rarely have problems I guess, is that usually it is not the software it self that is the problem, but what software/hardware combinations it coexists with.

    Way too often we read something like this from self-proclaimed experts:
    "xyz-software is useless and I will never use it again, it is just trash... blabla" and then keeps on badmouthing it everywhere (even tho few others have the same problem) just because it didnt work well on his machine. To me it seems that some people have too high expectations and unrealistic view on software developing. I´m certainly not a programmer my self, but I can imagine that it is impossible for a programmer to code a software that is perfect (I even read on MAC and Linux forums that they can have problems :eek: ;) ) on every possible combination of setups out there.

    The few times I encounter software that doesnt work on my machine I try to figure out what it is and notify the developer who most of the time do want to help, or ask in forums if anyone else has the same problem.
    If we cant figure it out, I just stop using the app. Then I know that it is something unknown (or when I´m too lazy to investigate) in my machine and I move on.
    Thats the beauty of try before you buy :)
    So the short answer is: All security software (that I currently run) works flawlessly and work well togheter. (I guess this topic is about security relatedapps)
    And those are:
    Prevx2 Research version.
    Boclean
    LnS
    Norman Antivirus
    FDISR
    Image for win/DOS
    All on both XP and VISTA

    NOD32 also ran very, very well. I would recommend either ;)

    No offence guys but I see little merit in this thread, it merely being another variation on the "which is best" theme. A program that behaves well with a member's particular hardware/software combination may well misbehave on a different setup and vise versa.

    Therefore, in line with our recently stated policy, this thread is hereby closed.

    Regards
