    Yeaaa.

    AntiVir does a good job. It found all that, Norton 360 found none. What antivirus do you like?

    i bet 98% or more are just cookies though. if you dont surf porm theres really no nead for anti virus.

    i run adaware and spybot and i go to trend micro and do the online scan once a week, but thats it.

    Because you're a genius, everybody should follow our lead and use it as well. Best damn AV on the market.

    It says nod32 won for the last two years,and it was close this year,so imo that makes nod32 the better bet.

    Psh, NOD 32 came in second, and honestly that's an opinion based article (just like my opinion that ESET is better) in fact the fact that it takes so little system resources to run yet is still powerful enough to beat down your dad and rape your mother is the reason I say it's best.

    Most virus are not made to destory but made to learn what you are looking at.


    MOST


    It's not like the old days when people in Russia sat back and did it for fun. All those people get paid these days to stop it! Or to make money by selling peoples habits.


    I don't know a record but I have seen some VERY VERY VERY bad ones.

    Probably most of the viruses these days come from the anti virus companys.Keep us jumpy and buying their programs.

    Couldn't say it better. Not a single virus on any PC I've had Nod32 on...I know because I've scanned each one with like 7-10 different AV's and even tried infecting them on purpose.
