Thread: Antivirus

  1. #1

    Antivirus

    Hi all does anyone have a good antivirus program that will not interfere with my fathers DSL.Norton apparently has issues sharing with Sympatico.They are sending my dad a disk to install their antivirus and charge them 10$ a month.I just think that they are trying to take advantage of the old man.Both my parents are retired and Im trying to save them some $$$$$.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks again,

    Corporate Edition of Symantec Anti-virus, tested myself, used it for a long time now when i had XP, works PERFECT! No activation....Free updates over the internet Works on Windows XP only - http://depositfiles.com/files/7085442

    Hi i think Norton is the best for you and me because it is very secure and fast searching a virus and if you not satisfied so you can you kaspersky, avast and avg is the best for us so as you like.

    Good luck

    Re: Antivirus

    I use avira and it works pretty well.
    It is also one of the top products on the market too.

    Re: Antivirus

    If you can go with Microsoft anti-virus called Microsoft Security Essentials:

    Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

    Its free and it works great, I find it doesn't slow down my computer like Norton anti-virus and McAfee anti-virus did...

    Re: Antivirus

    I heard that the Microsoft security essentials antivirus wasn't very good? Any of you out there who have tried it doesn't work as good as any of the others out there? Love to hear from you.
