Anti-Virus

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Just wondrin if theres any anit-virus programs out there better than avast. I've tried nod32 and I absolutely hated it. I slowed my connection to a virtual stop, and even destroyed my wireless connection a few times.
I don't care how to fix nod32, I just don't like it.

That's because your only using 1GB or ram with Vista and that's the minimum. If you would have 2GB at least or 4GB its fast.

AVG is the only other way to go for a free anti-virus program. By the way, they discontinued the old AVG version and hence why you had to upgrade to 8.1 and if you noticed the small link you did not have to pay for it. But, it does include additional security.

Past that I would recommend paying for Kaspersky Anti-Virus.
