  1. I was looking for a new AV.
    I currently use F-Secure which is good. I was just wondering if there is any others out there that may be slightly better??

    So far realblackstuff if you read this man, everything you have ever posted has helped me out in everything man. I have been gone for a while but I am back again :wave:

    Anyway anything besides Norton it's a resource hog. I do alot of online gaming along with some Graphics stuff.

    Thanks :cool:

    Thanks for the flowers.
    If you are happy with F-Secure, stay with them, they are in the top-10.
    If you don't mind paying, Eset-Nod32 is also very effective and relatively light on system resources. I was using ExtendiaAVK (mixture of Kaspersky and RAV) for a while, but it took its toll on my (then) Athlon 1900XP. I have tried F-secure, but it would not run on my PC. Of course Norton is beyond discussion....
    Trend-Micro gets lots of accolades lately, it would get my vote as well.
    I changed to AVG7, and I must say it does a splendid job for me. Best of all, it is free.
