What is the best Antivirus to buy, I have used AVG for a couple of years now (free edition) just recently I downloaded the Profesional version and now I have 2 days to make my mind up as to buy or not (33 quid)I cannot honestly say that is any better than the free edition (in my opinion) I have heard that Trend Micro is also very good, what is the opinion of the Helproom ?
Dont know about you out there but after fettling my mates computer a few weeks ago which was ram jam full of the above it's clear to me that all this rubbish is getting worse by the week! I installed AVG Prof on his computer and at the same time mine, my mate thinks that if you pay for something you are much better off than not paying, eg, (you get better support) that is his perogative as I cannot always go round and fix his problems. I explained that is not always the case but it is up to him and that is why I am asking the origional question..for him not me, because I put AVG Prof on his comp he trusts me to know what I am doing, and I dont want him to be disappointed with his purchase.
As for me because I have loads of defences up against all the rubbish (ad-aware SE, spywareblaster, Spamguard,Spybot) and Sygate up and running it is not such a big deal, I am much better protected then he is, that is why I asked you all, because a Forum as good as this is will convince me that I am doing the right thing for him,
Dual boot with Linux and use Linux for the Internet, I don't get any of those problems. If I want Windows I re-boot to it and run it. It cost me about 25 squid for a paid for version of Linux, and got a good O/S as well.
