MSE vs AVG or both? - Page 3

post #21 of 47
Eseet NOD32, hands down. Smallest footprint and best update frequency and reliability. It's the ONLY AV I've actually ever said anything good about.
post #22 of 47
been using nod32 for years now. if i were to ever switch, it would prolly be MSE.

Yeah looking at hosts file

the ignorance in this thread is astounding.

First of all AVG has the most comprehensive list of attacks. Of course it's bloated. When the fools stop writing malicious code to attack businesses and governments then the list will start to dwindle. Once it's gotten to a manageable point then and only then will the bloat be expunged.

Second of all there is no way on gods green earth that MSE can even do half the things that AVG can do. It's minimalistic approach is a nice thought. EXCEPT that this is the same company who makes the OS. The same OS that bricked my Brother's system the first Tuesday of this month. Straight up bricked it. He was lucky that he hadn't installed the updates on the XP side of his dual boot system and was able to find a suitable restore point to clear the updates.

Let me ask you, do you like fisching? How bout identity theives? Trojans? If you do then by all means run MSE. Their firewall is BARELY serviceable as a Firewall. If you have it set to a reasonable setting you're open to attacks that you don't have any idea you've been tagged until it's too late. If you have it set to max protection settings good luck doing anything.

Also, if you set your system to scan before sleep mode kicks in then it won't bog down your system when you're on it. If AVG bogs a Q6600 system I'll eat an AVG installation disc. I can see it bogging an Atom system because it's a single core CPU. But a 6600? Sorry I don't buy it.

Are there better AVs' than AVG? Yes. But I have the latest version(2011) and I have had none of these issues and my update from being off my system for the last 6 months didn't take but 15 minutes to download, intall, apply and scan. And that was while I was making sure my system was stable after my sleeving was finally set.

I also run two other programs. Spybot Search and Destroy(excellent Freeware program) and Malware Bytes. Because no AV is 100%. Not even Nod. About the only true statement I noticed was that Norton sucks donkey ballz. You want bloatware, Norton meets that in spades. You shouldn't need to download an uninstallation program from ANY manufacturer in order to remove their crap off your system. Norton is so full of holes I could drive a M1 Abrahams through it without damaging anything.

I love AVG and has used AVG for a long time..., lately I feel like AVG spams me more with their trial upgrade or update often to move to new versions. I don't like this for installing free antivirus to family that know nothing about comptuers.

Lately I've been liking MSE and seems to be mostly burden free. Also there is an University somewhere in SF (forgot which one) that did some big testing with Antiviruses and infected their own systems and MSE detected everything while AVG let some pass, MacFee let everything pass and Norton didn't do that well either.
