Avast Free Antivirus is a full-featured antivirus package designed exclusively for home and non-commercial use.Avast includes standard resident protection, P2P and IM shields, network shield (against worms etc.), web shield (http traffic monitoring), automatic updates, virus chest and virus cleaner.
With Sky Shields you can forget about being cautious.Good antivirus software is an invaluable tool for keeping your computer, your personal information, and the security of your friends and family safe from hackers, identity thieves, and spammers. Today's viruses have the capability to do everything from sending your personal information like credit card numbers and bank accounts to identity thieves to turning your computer into a slave that will send out spam e-mail messages, attack websites, or do pretty much anything else the virus maker wants it to. I've also tried Kaspersky and Norton is a lot better Yes I like norton the best antivirus ever as I am using it since 1995, It is the only antivirus that give removal tool for specific virus.And on top of that, viruses are programmed to seek out your contacts and try to infect them as well. I have never been let down by Norton - NEVER ESET ESET is the best antivirus yet, it is very fast, it don't slow down your system unlike norton and kaspersky.Has worked better and more subtly so than Norton or Mc Afee. Mc Afee installed updated on first scan identified Trojans and malware removed them all.High detection Takes less memory AVG - Has caught all viruses so far :)- Good heuristic protection (both generic and behavioural - Identity Protection)- Anti-Rootkit module- Offline virus DBs to download - a BIG plus from my point of view- Last but not ;east, it's TRULLY free (no catches, unlike other "free" AVs out there) I used norton and kaspersky but they were too heavy. Can be pricey software but worth the money if all else fails. I will get Mc Afee (normally get a year free with bank accounts) and see how good it is again.
