post #21 of 28
Over the years I've used some free and some paid and I have to say I can't be more pleased with MSE.

Antivirus are bloatwares... Stopped using them since I built my PC last october.

I did 1 or 2 online scans since then using TrendMicro House Call. Never found anything.

I would agreed the best free AV is AVAST!.

See http://anti-virus-software-review.toptenreviews.com/ for a 2011 comparison
I got a free year of Kaspersky with my motherboard and after messing with my room mate's copy he had on his laptop I can't say its user friendly. A lot of unnecessary stuff came with it.

I still have to say I am happy with MSE and Malwarebytes. I had Avira previously, but my friend had a virus get past it and never detected and I had a similar situation on my laptop which Malwarebytes detected from my alternate OS. Avast just scares me, I don't like things talking to me. Plus I saw a horrid virus that disguises itself as Avast that my I removed off a friend's computer. What a pain.

Okay, but the point I was making is that Kaspersky has a very good detection engine, which is what you want. It is based upon both signatures and behaviors. As an aside, I really dont want users playing with AV software settings. Let knowlegable techs set the AV settings and configure it to auto-run. A non tech user should not interact with the AV software settings and in general should take the base defaults. Uninformed changes may lead to non forseen consequences.

MSE, or Avast are pretty good free AVs

If you want to pay for one, then ESST Nod32 would be it.

Don't forget MalwareBytes, Spyblaster, Spybot as an addition to your AV.

I've been using COMODO Anti-Vlrus/Firewall lately and I really like it.

You can try it out for a month for free.
