could someone please tell me which anti-virus package i should use. i have had "panda titanium antivirus 2004" free with my PC, which I have recently purchased. However I have been told by a friend to forget that, and use AVG 6.0. instead. Which is the best? I am pretty new to all this and need some advise. I am also running Spy-bot search and destroy, ad-aware, and spyware blaster. Am I well protected and is there anything else I should consider? Many thanks for any advise. Cheers. JiM-BoB
I use AVg and have done for several years, i have never had a problem with it and it casts nothing. As far as the other programmes you mentioned i use Spybot S&D, Adaware & a2 squared so you will have plenty of protection with the programmes you mentioned, just make sure you update them regularly
having run both programmes i've found avg to be the better at detection and panda better at removal. also panda tends to bug you more with consent pop up boxes even in learning mode whereas avg runs quietly in the background using a tiny amount of sys resources. my opinion and pennies worth ;-)
You have the well tried and recommended spyware programmes on your computer, and I would suggest that your install AVG. What firewall do you have, if none then I would suggest ZoneAlarm. All are easy downloads and are free to use, and above all, that combination should see you very safe.
