I know this is an old topic but I am a new user. I have been spoilt for last few years and worked with a company’s system and now have had to buy my own computer. So any ideas as to which antiviral system to use? Norton seems to be PC hungry and slows everything down but it is good. MacFee is an unknown to me now as is any other provider. I am looking for a Anti spam/pop up/virus checker package. So any suggestions or comments gratefully received. BCS
IMHO wouldn't hesitate to recommend avg as anti virus, have used free version for a long time. It doesn't snaffle all your resources and doesn't bury itself deep into your computer like elements of norton tend to. click here is homepage. Also use adaware another free program for spyware detection/removal, again free but can't remember homepage, googling should work tho'
I`ve just had a look at Nod 32 and I`m impressed. Whatever you do use only 1 AntiVirus programme in case of conflict, and I`d suggest going along with JoeR. You may have as many or as few anti spyware as you like as they all seem to do different jobs. Hopefully one of my betters will come aboard and explain. Also, you need a good firewall. You`ll find plenty of references in the archives. Lastly, just in case, when you download any of the suggested ideas check for upgrades.All the best mate
