Antivir has severe update problems. What instead?
I go on using it all the same. I use HIPS too, I surf sandboxied, so I can wait if some update delays.
Avast would be my choice.
It's dependable for updates and there a lot of component shields that you can choose to use, or not. And it's configurable if you like to tweak settings like I do.
That's my .02 anyway.
Anyone of those will do ya! (that works best for you and your system.) Stick a pin in it ako
recommend for you AVZ, even enable guard/block usermode/kernel.
I assume you mean AVG, I find it comical people would still recommend a free AV with purposely reduced detections.
That's the one - I don't use av funkydude but AVZ is a nice tool, kinda like an all-in-one sysinternals toolkit.
But does it matter, all the above are good enough if you want av, but should be installed with hardening the os.
Their updating issues are greatly exaggerated. Want to update right now? Stop whining, download the sigs and install manually. Takes about 3 minutes to keep one of the finest free anti-whatever solutions happy.
AVG or Avast
Rising Antivirus 2009 International Free - Active Defense, Malicious Behavior Interceptor, Web Trojan Defense, Self-Protection and System Reinforcement. Tighten security where the firewall might not catch all this AV almost works like another firewall to block those pest!
Yuo are using this as real-time?
Actually I don't. I've tested the guard and it will prevent any application from running until you choose to trust it.
I'll use AVZ to produce a report or use a utility. AVZ doesn't have to be installed.
I've just looked at Rising Internet Security, very strong.
- worth it just for Leo the animated mascot.
Joke aside Rising impressed me, layered protection, nice tools such as processes management in tree view so that you can easily see relationships, highlighting and an all important 'suspend' processes mode amongst others. Would like to see network connections expanded. Very good detection against zoo, easy to navigate around, nice gui.
AVZ gets my vote too... you can download AVZ 4.32 straight from the developer's - Oleg Zaytsev - site:
Avast or MSE
I disable the mascot, it really doesn't do anything of use, I think it's there for show and tell purpose.
Annoying little x ain't he lol. Altogether though RIS is strong protection, I'll give em that.
Voted for Avast!
MSE also another descent one.
I feel sorry for the person that voted forticlient >.<
But nothing unusual here, the 3 most popular AV's are the 3 best ones.
What's the difference between Rising and Rinsing?
Several good choices there, but my vote goes to Antivir.
Avira or Avast
avast is definetly first choice, then MSE as 2nd, but not close 2nd IMO.
Microsoft Security Essentials. It's lightweight and very effective, according to Av-Comparatives.org.
It has been praised by near every review so far.
