SAV Corporate v.9
Then why are you using the lightest AVG?
Back to Dr.Web, NAV 2007 is nice and I enjoyed playing with it for a couple of days, a must try for anyone who has not tried a Norton product in several years, because of the way it use to be, this certainly does not apply now...
I just downloaded the NOD32 2.7 beta, its a great AV and it keeps on getting better.
Carver, are you experiencing long update delays with the beta?
Money is an issue for some! And some of us do not want to put the money into aging systems when Vista is right around the corner and a complete upgrade will soon be on the way.
Dr.web user here,
AVG Free, Antivir Free, BitDefender Free, F-Prot DOS, Dr. Web CureIt, NOD 32 trial.
On diferent machines of course
There are no AVs being used on 'any' of my PCs [5 *nix boxes and 1 Windows Test Box]
Screen Capture [Below] of the Windows Box [laptop] I'm using currently ... If I were to use an AV, I can assure you it'd be a freebie.
omg, can i at least suggest Dr.Web Cure It, its free, it scans with latest signatures, and you dont have to install it, and its freeeee hehe
None. I know that probably doesnt fit here but I just wanted to state that quite alot of people I know do not have a resident av, although I do test most of them and use a few online services. I'm not saying in no way that I feel that av is not needed or recommend not using av protection, its just I dont usually.
Avira Antivir is on the av-compratives test.
Kaspersky Personal 6
I am not using any right now, and the uninstall of all my avs seemed to have cured my startup problems as well. I never had an alert from them anyways, and online scans once a month is sufficient for me.
I see you are just using ssm + firewall. I am actually toying with the idea of just running ssm or ps when my av subscriptions runs out. I never get any alerts from my av anyway. Hopefully i can master both ssm and ps before my subscription is up.
Just installed this. it seems to work very well with low resource use.
Why does he need an anti-virus btw?
Well, one would think having one installed 'On-Demand' for scanning of downloads would'nt be a bad idea. Wouldn't it?.
Just bought GDATA AVK 2007 and runs great, unless previous versions, no system slowdowns or such.
Why? And if you scan a download and it comes OK, then everything is OK?
Of course not. I don't think anyone needs reminding that no product can boast 100% detection/protection. But with freebies available with good detection rates that are capable of install for on-demand purposes, and therefore not continually taking up system resources, why not take advantage of it?. Sure there are circumstances where an AV is not needed but it only takes a hour of my neices using my computer, visiting/downloading from kids sites to see other scenarios where some form of protection needs to be in place.
Well, your niece prolly needs an AV, but that's not the case here, isn't it?
Well, i don't know, is it?. No matter, was just a simple suggestion and will leave it at that.
