    I'ma wiz at computers, can solve any problem. i lve dealiong with viruses cuz i can experiment with different programs and techniques and find out which is the best one. I'm very experienced (for my age). But seriously, for an advanced sort of thing, which one would be the bestand most protective? BitDefender Professional Plus 8, NOD32, or kaspersky. And I keep running into some reviews that tell me that PC-CIllin and Norton 2005 are the best and Kaspersky is the worst. Just browse for antivirus comparisons/revies. or the best antivirus softwares. But please tell me the best ones.

    Trust me bud all the reliable sites have both Nod and Kapersky toward the top both rbs and I posted the best sites that actually tell the truth.. Only negitive thing I have heard about Kapersky is it take a lot to run which is kinda true . Please post some of the sites you are talking about. We have given our reviews the choice is yours We have listed all the good antivirus you asked for and gave the reviews on firewalls if want to test firewalls try this site.Here Best protection would be Kapersky NOD32 Depends really how much you like to spend .But I will say again do not run more then one on your system at once they will not work ...

    Thanks for the links it made for pretty good talk about products

    Links I checked not in order my thoughts!

    I dont really put much stock in what they say they have a history of being bias and personally I think they have one of the worst PC maginzines out there I like the anti hacker aced sheilds up test and other ones more than I can say about some other ones.

    However, their interface is rather convoluted and may be best suited to more advanced users. Should be used in conjunction with a firewall.Basically what I was telling you Dont really agree what a few other ones they have on there list Biggiest one I do not agree with is NOrton that is just junk remember we talked about how easy it is to get that one.


    http://www.alcatrazsecurity.net/index.shtml NOT a real retipable site anythign that has stuff on it about South Dakota Pheasant Hunting and Home Refi. I really dont trust to much


    http://anti-virus-software-review.toptenreviews.com/?ttreng=1&ttrkey=antivirus reviews Kapersky was not ever reviewed

    like said any antivirus is as good as the updates

    I meant that I think the comments that pople make about viruse on other websites are bogus not the ones peoplemake on techspot. By the way, i downloaded and insatlled NOD32 from theinternet. So I got NOD32. I tried having both Kasperskyand NOD32 but my computer got screwed up so I went into safe mdoe and unistalled Kaspersky. I want a fast and reliable AV with good protection. How's this:
    AV: NOD32

    Anti-Spyware/Adware: Adaware SE professional 1.05 and Spybot Search and Destroy.
    Webroot Spysweeper 2.6, Webroot Pop-up washer, Windows Washer, and Accelerator. Spyware Doctor, Microsoft AntiSpyware, Spyware Blaster and SpywareGuard, Ad-Watch SE Professional 1.05.

    Firewall: Zonealarm Pro 5.5

    So how's that?

    Your computer got messed up becuse you had more than one antivirus running . You will be happy with Nod-32 Your firewall is fine so you should be all set now.

    Personally all I use is Kapersky Antivirus Kapersky Anti Hacker and spybot for spyware as well as only use firefox and spywareblaster ....

    Have a good one

    Yea, I got mozilla and internet explorer, and some other browsers. Actually, Ithink I'mgoing backto kaspersky. NOD32, which is scanning right now is very goodbut it is said to not have the best virus detection. Kaspersky has the BEST virus detection. I dont care about interface. Its not as bad a resource hog as Norton. I'm switching to kaspersky. sorry nod32, maybe next time. But hey, got the number one firewall, haha, go ZoneLabs.
