AVG for me :)
i use avast not had a problem with it so far
eset all the way. i run and own computer repair and have always used eset nod32 mainly for their extensive options and light on RAM resources style software. malwarebytes, spybot s&d, superantispyware to remove most any spyware and hijackthis(not for beginners) for optimizing startup....
Norton Internet Security!! Woo
Working in the retail computer trade I get alot of PC's coming into our shop with virus infections. The best Anti Virus software we have found is Kaspersky Internet Security.
Systems with the highest infection rate's
1 Norton (also causes system to run slower by 50%)
2 McAfee (also causes system to run slower by 20%)
3 AVG Free
to name a few.
Never like any other AV. Does teh job perfectly.
Yeah I personally use Linux when I can, but on the computer that uses windows, I use common sense, Zone alarm for program control/software firewall, and my antivirus is just ClamWin.
But the thing is that even a Unix based computer (Linux, Mac OS X and above, BSD, etc.) isn't immune to "malicious code" I mean if you want to really screw up a linux install tell the command line to "rmfs" and see what happens.
(seriously don't do that... not wise, it removes the file system if you didn't know that.)
Every Operating system has the ability to get a virus. It's just that the one that has the largest market share (Windows) is the more likely target for viruses because Virus writers want to hit the largest number of possible victims.
When on windows, I like to sandbox my questionable downloads, which is most everything I download.
As for linux, I love puppy linux, boot cd, no worry about anything.
How true, the "restricted account thing" does help but it is still possible. but at least Unix is secure by design. at least it is sort of possible in Windows to do that, but it doesn't do it by default. since windows 2000 that is...
I like to use Debian myself, I use Puppy linux as a rescue disc, you wouldn't believe how many times Puppy has saved my butt with a fried windows install. was able to fix some damage a virus caused and removed it's files, but once I booted back to windows I still had to remove the registry references to the virus to stop an error. granted I caught the virus quick before it ate any of the system files that are required and are determined by the system they are installed on.
