[Solved] Looking for new non intrusive and effective antivirus

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
EDIT: I went for Kaspersky Internet Security. Originally it was $60 on Kaspersky's own site, but I got it for $8.37 instead! Happy days and thanks for the help guys smile.gif


Hello fellow OCN'ers smile.gif

The time has come for me to get a new antivirus and I am very unsure what to pick in the vast selection of programs.

What I want is a antivirus that is not intrusive and no pop ups (or the option to disable these), very low on system resources and good protection overall.

It does not matter if it's free or paid. So far I have been eyeing Kaspersky, what are your thoughts on that?

Rep+ for good help as always!

Windows defender. You really don't need anything more as getting virus' has more to do with a person's internet behaviors than anything else.

I can recommend Kaspersky, I've used it for at least 3 years and haven't had any issues with it.
The only time it will give you a pop-up is if it has detected a threat.

On the other hand, I agree with "Depauville Kid." Windows Defender is enough in most cases.. though having the extra safety of having a proper anti-virus helps me relax when downloading/visiting certain websites.

Thanks, although I am already using it. It has not found a single thing in soon 2years haha! I am quite good with being safe on the net, but sometimes one can be unlucky.

Sounds good really! I might try out Kaspersky, have heard many great things about them (and some bad). How is resource usage?

Thanks again to the both of you.

Kaspersky is known to be one of the less resource hungry anti-viruses out there.
You don't need to think about it unless you've got under 1GB RAM.
