Thread Starter 
I've lost my patience with AntiVir. I'll connect up a virus-ridden hard drive up to a computer running AntiVir and it'll find a load of viruses and remove them.

Then I'll put the hard drive on a computer running AVG Internet Security and it'll find all the viruses AntiVir didn't want to remove!!!

So, AntiVir is way out of the window.

Still, NOD32 surely beats AVG all the way.

Ok... I see everyone here likes NOD32 (actually this is the first time I've heard of this program...)

My question is... does anyone like the ZoneAlarm Internet Pro Suite? I haven't seen many comparative reviews of it in the mainstream, yet it seems to be a very powerful anti-virus combined with their already trusted firewall program.

Personally, I have given it a shot and for the most part I have not had any major infections slow down my PC. More or less, I previously was a Norton AV user... however ZA runs alot faster and doesn't bog down resources like Norton did.

Anyone else have an opinion about ZA?

I used to use SpySweeper w/ antivirus, but after my subscription expired, I posted up a similar question like this and everyone told me to go AVG. So far, it is by far the best, most reliable, and least intrusive spyware/anti-virus I have ever used. I have installed it on 4 machines for customers and I have yet to hear about an issue yet.

AVG FTW!

I love my NOD32
post #37 of 76
I have to look into this NOD32 now. If this many people recommend it, it has got to be pretty good. I just hope it doesn't cost an arm and a leg because I usually have to get it for customers and you can't expect them to pay like $40 a year.
