    You are maybe thinking i am just a noob and don't know what iam talking about...
    Well whatever floats your boat. I shared my experince that's it. I am not here to
    convience any one to follow my foot steps. For novice users maybe it is better to stick with AV and think that everything will be just fine.

    Best of luck.
  2. Avast, fail.
  3. The best combination I've found is

    AVG 8.5 Free + Malwarebytes Anti-Malware + Spybot S&D + CCleaner (just to clean things up)

    I found bitdefender to be the best. Especially their version for gamers. Very little interference.
  5. My customers tell me that norton and mcafee are the best after they miss hundreds of spyware and viruses that I clean up with avg. They go out and they buy norton for over 100 dollars and uninstall avg free edition, why? Because they are a bunch of *****s.
  6. I have been very satisfied with Sunbelt Software's Vipre. Very low overhead, stops the worst infestations that my clients running Norton and McAfee bring for removal. I uninstall their current AV/AM and install Vipre. Vipre provides free of charge a boot time scanner in case you are too infected to be able to control Windows any longer. You just need a friends computer that isn't infected to download the program, and then boot into safe mode and run the program from disk or USB drive.

    Avast works great! In fact, they won an award from Virus Bulletin for this test.
