Dont mind paying for AntiVirus-any recommendations

  buel 14:58 20 Dec 2009

Hi, i have a brand new laptop and am eventually going to split it into 3 partitions, one for vista, Xp and Windows 7. In the past i have always used the free Avg and, to be fair, i haven't had any problems but being as this is a brand new latop i dont mind paying for an AntiVirus so which one would anyone recommend please? (i want one that isn't too processor-hungry)
Also, would it be ok/legal to use it on the 3 different operating systems?

We did a beta test on it and it was the best AV I've ever used.

Nod 32 is supposed to be the best.

As long as it is being used on the one computer I can see no problems.

I'm using PC Tools Internet security. AV plus Anti Spyware, AQnti Spam and Firewall. Link it with Firefox running Web of Trust, Ad Block and Noscript, ande I reckon your pretty secure.

Eset NOD32 - or Eset Security Suite.

Or for a free AV I've been putting Microsoft Security Essentials. Seems MS have finally produced a decent AV.

Im not certain,but i think you would have to instal it on each system.

Why on earth do you want 3 operating systems? basicly they all do the same job.
I prefer Kaspersky 2010, and it is free if you happen to bank online with Barclays

NOD32 is my recommendation.

I've never had a problem with it.

I have been running Bullguard for two months now click here and am thus far very impressed with the level of security/speed of loading/lightweight on resources/unobtrusiveness - and the licence covers three machine if you need it.
