They're just too many variables to account for. Viruses take advantage of this and purposely go about infection every way possible.
No, all standard virus/worms spread over a specific flaw. The goal is to make the smallest and simplest code possible to spread maliciously.

You cannot be serious. Norton prevents viruses by slowing your system down to its bloody knees

But +1 for avast

I absolutely recommend ESET NOD 32. You have to pay for it, but its worth the money.
post #65 of 96
Using Avast for awhile now with no problems so far. Works as well as any and small footprint. I usually recommend it to people who don't want to "work" with an anti-virus program.

I switched to ZoneAlarm and have had great results. Gotta pay for it but it's worth it. I "back it up" by using MalwareBytes as well (which is free). I run MalwareBytes once a week at least. Between the two, I finallt have some peace of mind.

I use Spybot-Search And Destroy, Its a pretty good anti-spyware tool, Also it works on viruses, and malware too, also its free. Its helped alot on some viruses ive had, And it doesn't take up alot of system resources either.

Just look in the forum, MSE is probably the most used now.
probably explains all the rogue malware posts then.

Op you can use any av but avg free edition you'll be better of with malware than with it. Prepare to loose your operating system once you get infected. It doesn't disinfect. It quarantines and deletes. Which is normally your os critical files. Its got a poor scanning engine huge amount of false positives and miss about 17 percent of the malware thrown at it. That's a full 10 percent less than the other solutions.

Whatever you choose make sure you have the following on your system
Spywareblaster
Spybot search and destroy
Malware bytes
Super antispyware
Process explorer and replace task manager with it
Autoruns work hand in hand with process explorer for quick startup applications view and disable.

Then Sandboxie
Use chrome or firefox and install the following add ons some of these won't be available for chrome or maybe they are now

WOT
NO SCRIPT
ADD BLOCK PLUS
BETTER PRIVACY
VACUUM
GHOSTERY

Or you can just install Jondoefox which is firefox but with no SCRIPT and all security add ons already installed. It even got drtek toolkit to customize firefox under its hood plus Icquix search engine which basically fetch google and other ones results for you without the annoying adds and cookies planted all over your pc and without you ip being logged and recorded.

Firewall there's a lot but online armor and outpost are good ones to start with.

With the above your protected until the next government decided to create a multi million dollar worm...

Paid I'd go for NOD32

Free I'd stick with MSE/Avast and using Malwarebytes with one of them.
