Which Anti virus do you recommend that lets you block what you want to block?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just installed kaspersky trial and it says it will take 3-4 hours to do one scan. That sounds ridiculously slow.

I went from Avast-free to kaspersky trial and I have to say kaspersky seems to suck. Who wants to scan for 3 hours? Plus, the reason I liked Avast-free is because it would let me block whatever I wanted to block. If I felt like something wasn't a virus it would let me tell it not to block it. Like a couple of game cheater programs for fable pc 1 were picked up as viruses by Avast but I told it not to block it and all was good. I wish more anti-viruses were like Avast in that department. The problem is I don't know if I should try to use another anti-virus or stick with Avast.

3+ hours doesn't seem an unreasonable amount of time to do a full virus scan. I think you should just run it overnight. with the option to turn it off after the scan is done ticked. Or something.

MSE has that functionality too. Avast is one of the best AV in the world, unless you had some infections that weren't dealt with, then you shouldn't change it. People seem to say that Kaspersky has become quite boated and that it works (albeit slower than others). My advice would be to use MSE or Avast and only change to a pay-for-use AV if you have some special security needs that the free clients don't provide.

its because its checking run time packers. If a antivirus don't do that stay away from it your going to get murdered. You can disable it if you want. Just go in the settings and disable scan run time packers

Eset Nod32. Small footprint, great interface... It's fantastic.
