Good anti virus software?

Well my subscription just went out on my laptop. I have been using AVG8.5 Seems to have worked so far. It is 73 bucks to renew for 2 years. Is that a good price and is that a good product? I know this is probably covered often but a quick search did not yield the results I wanted. Thanks JJ

AVG is fair, TrendMicro used to be good.


Webroot, Symantec, or McAfee is the best.

Norton,(Symantec) is decent, McAfee is a joke, as any good computer person, they say it's the worst out there.

So, it's obvious your not a "Computer Person".

Each product has it's flaws. Symantec with their old SAP, current SEP, or the Norton line (or is it still called 360?), has issues with performance on the machine depending on OS and installed components. I have a number of years of experience with Enterprise SAP and current SEP.

Same With McAfee. I've been beta testing McAfee SecurityCenter versions for about 2 years now. Running on Vista Pro\Ultimate and Windows 7 Pro\Ultimate (32 and 64bit). It works extremely well on Vista or Windows 7. I don't like it on XP.

I've been using Comodo on different computers for a few years now, haven't had a problem since installing.

try Microsoft essentials (free), doesn't affect system performance very much.

Well, I liked how he painted himself into a corner..

"Of these, only West Coast Labs tested Comodo, certifying it for virus detection but not for virus removal."

"Comodo's challenge didn't specify how the showdown would be funded."

"Some free antivirus products score very well in PCMag's own testing, but none have beaten the best commercial products."
