I agree. I have used at least 4-5 different programs over the years and I'm sick of all the BS that comes with them! They constantly want more money, constantly advertising more products I don't need/ want, and they are resource hogs. You would be surprised how far some common sense will take you. smile.gif

I have actually personally been testing out Max Internet Security GE, so far it has been a good experience id recommend giving it a try.

Even with common sense you can still catch something and without anti-virus you run the risk of not knowing your infected and spreading that infection across your network if you have more than one computer in your home. Even the most tech savvy people can still be infected, the viruses you have to actually watch out for are not the blatent ones that give themselfs away but the ones that hide and record personal information. It used to be you had to click on something, open something or install something to get a virus but now you just have to visit a site and you can get infected, this can happen to anyone as misspelling a word in the URL could lead you to an infected site by mistake and lets face it no one is the prefect typist. It really comes down to personal preference really, would you like to run the risk of being infected and not knowing about it or at least have the small comfort of an anti-virus?


ESET Products use Minimal System Resources while still being great anti-virus/malware
Quote:
ESET NOD32 Antivirus demonstrated conclusively not only that it is a reliable product, but also in terms of the lowest memory usage. John Hawes commented on the results: "... memory usage was fairly low. Detections rates were excellent, showing a continuation of the upward trend seen in the last few tests.”

Virus Bulletin's VB100 Test award them in all tested operating systems.

Now this isnt to say that the other anti-virus products on the market are not just as good, its just to say that in terms of computer resources ESET products are leading the way(at least from what I can find) in using minimal resources to accompish the same tasks as the "bulkier" products on the market.

Sorry I ment to multi-quote but I must have overlooked it. You clearly said you dont need an anti-virus and common sense will take you pretty far. As you clearly said you have tried out 4-5 of them over the years and found them to be resource hogs that come with advertisements and just want more money for things. I fail to see how I miss read what you said, I offered up advice on an anti-virus that is minimal system resources that dosnt have advertisements or bothers you for more money as the subscription is yearly.
