Default Antivirus for Win7

OK. My ISP is not up to speed with WIN7 yet. I need an antivirus/spy/malware program.

Suggestions oh WIN7 gurus?

Peace,
dave

Lmao avast has to be by far the worst Anit virus program I have ever heard off.... lol that's funny. My girl friend was running advast ( acutely how we meet) and was complain about how slow her laptop was going, somebody told her to install avg and she did found 5 different viruses, was still slow I got my hands on it installed malwarebytes got rid of 117 different cases of spyware and malware then placed Norton on it and got rid of 6 more Viruses and 3 Trojans,

I can understand why you say Norton is bad as pre 2009 stuff it was begin to lag allot of resources but with Norton 2009 dud this stuff fly's and my system is so much faster and safer

lol the attached picture is when i was ruining spy bot on here system and avast finely found 1 entry. But you know what in a way i want to thank Advast as if it wasn't for it i would have never meet my current girlfriend and also in a way i want to kill advast because if it wasn't for it i would have never meet my current girlfriend : )

I would go with the AVG Antivirus Suite. I have it running on my X64 Win7 desktop and my X32 Win7 laptop works great on both with very little performance degradation.

Are we talking about the same thing? you keep referring to advast.. the software I'm talking about is called Avast and is very good.

You can read the review from here

And lastely this is where i get all my reviews from for software ect.. toptenreviews.com

Just read this.. thats all you need to know

Quote:
AVAST did receive the West Coast Labs Checkmark level 1 and 2 as well as the VB100%. However, AVAST wasn't as effective as some of the other products reviewed. For better virus protection, refer to some of our higher-ranked products.
Yes I realize its not 100% yet, but it is in the level 1 and 2 category which is just as good as nortons and kaspersky etc... maybe not better.. sorry, but IMO it is. From a factual standpoint they are basically the same, shown by the level 1 and 2 checkmark by the West Coast Labs, I probably should of said that IMO this is better then Nortans, kaspersky etc... not that it actually is better my bad!

Lol its cool whenever you talk about this stuff the debate always gets heated because everybody believes their software is the best even when it is relative the same : ) but with my personal experience I have found it to be inconclusive as a antivirus soft ware as from my post that Norton found more stuff then it did and was able to re pair more but then northing missed stuff that spybot and malware bytes got....
When it comes down to it though it's almost always about preference plus the avast stuff may be good now as the last time I messed with it was about 2 years old.

Avast works perfect for me. Compared to norton not one virus has entered my computer. Norton on the other hand has taken up more ram and has allowed a few viruses to leak in every so often even after updates.
Avast pro is the same thing. Its for businesses so its not completely free. They do get funding. I would trust it. Even for looking threw those ... ahem... mature websites

Too true.. compared to Nortons it is still a baby! It could of changed over the last 2 years, but from what I have seen, its worked brilliantly! I've had nortons for the last 4-5 years and I was so happy to get that off my pc... actually now I think about it, the only reason I ever tried it was because Nortons wasn't working with W7 LOL!!

But yeah, for a free software package with same ratings as Nortons I don't think I'll change till I see any more improvements in Nortons or till pigs fly... -Adrian

NOD32 is by far one of the best anti-virus you will ever get. Have it running on my system atm. It's compatible with the beta of Win7 but haven't heard anything about compatibility with the actual Win7 and there is nothing on their site about it.

Also, Norton isn't as bad as everyone thinks it is...you just have to have it running on the right settings.

Yes NOD32 is great too! But not compatible with W7 yet I had NOD32 ages ago... but it never told me what it was doing.. like if I try run a patch it would just delete the file, and I can't recover it :@, but this was ages ago and it has probably changed, When I had it, it only had 4 options, settings, vault (I think that's what its called), update and close LOL. But my grandfather uses it and ever since he installed it, he has never had a problem with his pc

I have heard good things about NOD32 but it remindes me of command and conquer : )

I agree ZoneAlarm is the only decent firewall software I have come across that does its job, and I would know, I run a web server and get about 50 hits per day, with no problems with security or threats!

What I dont like about ZoneAlarm (they might have fixed it, its been awhile since I used it) is that it links somehow to every file on your HD. And if you try to uninstall it, it creates havoc with your file system. You cant completely clear it off you machine either.

True! I had this problem a while ago, but I fixed it some how, I followed a youtube video and it works like magic now! I have never had probs with it as far as that! But I remember it was a real easy fix and I thought to my self "DUH!!" sorry couldn't be of much more help.

It's better if we open poll, everybody has your opinion
I use NOD32 for Win7 X64 and works fine.
My computer never got infected.

I'm personally using paid version of AVG on windows 7, seems to be working 100% no bugs, it doesn't slow my computer down and it picks up most virus's from files before I even download them :d

A test was done recently with all virus scanners including free and the ones that cost money. The test was to see which one was able to pick up and cure the most viruses.....lets just say that Avira got second place with picking up 98.7%. Believe it or not, but Norton Anti-virus got first place.

However, you have to pay to get Norton...and Avira is Free and Has been proven to be the best at detecting viruses out of all of the free virus scanners.
Here is a link for where you can download it.
Avira AntiVir Personal - Free Antivirus - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

FYI: AVG got 8 place. AVAST didn't even place in the top 10!!!

2009 anti-virus software detection placement (iNDEPENDENT TEST)

1.) Norton Internet Security 2009
2.) Avira AntiVir PersonalEdition
3.) McAfee VirusScan Plus
4.) Kaspersky Anti-Virus Personal
5.) Panda Antivirus Pro 2009
6.) BitDefender Antivirus Plus
7.) Eset Nod32
8.) AVG Anti-Malware
9.) G Data AntiVirusKit (AVK)
10.) F-PROT Antivirus

As I already said, Avira is on the top now, and considering it's free, the decision is clear.

Keep in mind that the paying version of Avira ONLY removes the adds (and I'm getting one every 6 hours or even more, so they are no way annoying), improves the updates downloading speed and adds spam filters and such, but the important thing:

The antivirus itself is THE SAME!

I had never used a free antivirus and I have to say I'm enjoying avira more than any other, and I have to admint I was a big Kaspersky / NOD32 fan.

Yours,
Albert
