Online Gamer needs Antivirus Recommendation

  RJack 14:51 26 Oct 2009

Hi all,

I play a lot of online games and i'm looking for advice on a good antivirus software programme either Free or to buy which won't restrict my connection when i play online.

I've used AVG in the past is this still good or is Norton's 360 a better choice?

Thanks in advance

A couple of questions:

Do you want to spend money or are you happy with free anti virus (in which case consider Avast or AVG)?

Is it just anti-virus you're after or something more? Norton 360 is a combined AV, anti-malware and firewall suite.

If it does the job i don't mind paying for it tbh as long as it doesn't restrict me when i play online games.

I've always used the Free AVG with all the other stuff like Microsoft Bit Defender & Microsoft Firewall but i was wondering if these restrict my connection when i play online.

Just look for a decent Antivirus pack free or to buy which is friendly with online gaming

Many thanks
