    NOD32
    and
    Look and Stop

    That's what I use. So far so good.

    On my system:

    NAV Pro 2004 running resident
    KAV 5.0 on demand
    ZAP 6.0 (it seems to be snappier even with all it's new bells & whistles than version 5.5)

    I agree, I use these and couldn't be happier. Very light on resources with very good protection. With the beta drivers LnS also fares the best against leaktests.

    Hi,
    I use Nod32 and Jetico. I beleive these 2 to give the best protection and light on resources. Just be aware jetico can be tedius to set up. but once set up it is very good!
    otherwise ive heard good things about look and stop, if you dont mind paying for a good firewall.

    cheers

    I second this option. Then again I would always go with NOD over KAV just my own personal liking. ;)

    7. KAV 5.0 pro + Outpost pro 2.7

    Especially since KAV 2006 is on the way(free upgrade for licensed users of 5), as well as Outpost 3(due out this month), which will make this combo even better.

    Right now, I'm using ZAP 6 and KAV Personal Pro 5. So option #1 is good. Will probably just move to KIS 6, though I'll see how ZAP and Outpost develop.

    Same experience on winXP Pro. The above combo is far best out there.

    After trialling options 1 to 7 you'll inevitably get to option 8 so why not save yourself some time.

    Not really, he could go straight to #7 and save time.

    Option #7
     
  22. option 7

    option 7 Guest

    The only problem with option 8 is you'll still probably need something like BOClean, but with option 7 your good to go as is. ;) Option 7 will run lighter though so you have to decide what you want more, the heavy duty protection of 7 which will use more resources, or the lighter running, though a bit less effective at detecting all different kinds of malware, option 8.

    Excellent choice. Both are really good in what they do and better than my choice : ZA Free + AVG Free.
    If you listen too long to people's advice, you are lost and don't know what to do anymore.

    Erik, i think it's possible even if you restrict to freeware, there are better combos than ZA free + AV free, though this is undoubtedly the most common combo for freebies.

    But you don't listen to other people's advise, i hear. :)
