It's look like here are only McAfee fans?

Voting Poll also show same results, but I know that Kaspersky, Norton & NOD32 are also very popular.

What's reason for this here at SCF?

Yes you got a right, because of that we often turn off Heuristic & PUP Real-Time Protection for older PCs.

But I think that it's same thing with for example KIS 2009 or Norton products??

i'm using mcafee enterprise, the same thing we use at work.  i used to use symantec corp antivirus which was good aswell (not as resource hungry as the old norton ones :) ).

AVG free didnt seem very good after installing symantec that found a couple of viruses AVG missed.  this was a few years back so things might have changed?

I was also ex-user of Symantec Corp. AV, last version which I use is I think 9 or 10. That version was have problem with detection of Adwares and Spywares... You have a right about PC recourse using, much much better than Norton version 2005-2006 (in these years I was using Symantec Corp.).

In my opinion also Symantec is better than AVG, but also true is that AVG is Best FREE AntiVirus solution right now.

Do you agree??

I like NOD 32 from ESET.  As a gamer and system builder I want the lightest weight AV in terms of CPU utilization ...after years of the competition, it's a noticeable improvement in boot time and visibly less junk running in Task Manager.  Works perfectly and seamlessly.

I know that NOD 32 is very fast, but did they enable option for Automatic Update?

As I remember, some old version (probably FREE) need Manual Start of Updates.
