Good antivirus software?
« on: 17. November 2011., 19:56:58 »
Hey guys, I just bought a new laptop. I will be using the laptop to surf the web and I will also be downloading files, so I will need a good antivirus to protect my computer from viruses.

Here are the specs of my laptop (not sure if it matters for antivirus software, but I'll include it anyways):

14" Sony VAIO C Series
Intel® Core™ i5-2410M processor (2.30GHz) with Turbo Boost up to 2.90GHz
4GB (2GBx2) DDR3-SDRAM-1333
500 GB SATA Hard Disk Drive [5400 rpm]
AMD Radeon™ HD 6630M (1GB VRAM) hybrid graphics with Intel® Wireless Display technology
Microsoft Windows® 7 Home Premium


So, can you guys recommend me a good antivirus software? I guess it would be a plus if it were free, but I don't mind paying for a good antivirus software (not paying over $30 for it). So.....help please?

Hi Bishvabis and Welcome to SCF Community.

Your lap have very good performance and, Yes, that is very important for "new" AV-s since some of them are very "heavy" for "weak and older" PCs.

My first recommendation is to try FREE Avira AV: http://scforum.info/index.php/topic,208.0.html I'm sure you'll be more satisfied with them than with some AV which cost under $30.
My second advice, in case that you don't like Avira or some other FREE AV (Avast, AVG or Panda): http://scforum.info/index.php/board,10.0.html , is to spend few more bucks and buy some well know AV like: Kaspersky, NOD32, BitDefender or McAfee. ;)

Hope these suggestions will help You??
Also, please don't forget to provide us your experience with tested products and final decision.

Best Regards,

S.

If you want free then I recommend Avast , superantispyware and Malwarebytes. coupled with Comodo firewall They are all free for personal use . It is safe to use two anti-spy products but never use more than one A/V as it can cause conflicts. You should run A/V and anti spy weekly.

My opinion is that McAfee is too heavy use to powerless machine! It requires at least a dual core processor to function correctly! ??? I would recommend either Avast or AVG virussanner of the smaller power machine to begin! :-\
