Best free lightweight AV application - Page 2

post #11 of 24
Avira is probably one of the best free AV choice available right now, with nearly the performance of paid-for software/services.

MSE isn't bad if you're on Vista or 7 but is a huge target on XP.

Avast or MSE. Either one will do.

You guys overdo it with protection. Unless you're a complete and incompetent moron, all you really *need* (and I use the word need very loosely) is something like MSE with the built in Windows Firewall. You do NOT need to take MSE/AVIRA/Avast and combine it with Comodo firewall and Malwarebytes. Hell, a savvy user doesn't even *need* an antivirus.

That's like saying you don't need a rubber when you've already had a vasectomy. You're only seeing half the equation.

To the OP - Glad to hear you got one picked out and it hasn't bitten you in the butt yet.
