AntiVirus Poll 2008





A couple of Notes: Some AVs have both freeware and commercial versions, some have suites. These are not broken out separately, please vote for the AV brand you use and then post which specific version that you use and why If you use an AV that is not listed above, please tell us about it.

Also, there are planned polls to come for Firewalls, Anti-Trojans, and Anti-Spyware after this one. Please be patient and wait for those to follow later

Dr. Web : Current version: 4.44

Updates to Dr.Web virus database are released as soon as new entries are added - up to several times per hour. "Hot" add-ons are released as soon as new threat is caught and analyzed. Dr.Web global monitoring network collects samples of new viruses from all over the world.

Dr.Web has the most compact virus database!

This spares users’ time and computers’ resources, users scan quicker, and updates are downloaded instantaneously. Just one entry in it detects tens, or hundreds and even thousands of similar viruses.

Dr.Web is resource-friendly!

Dr.Web spares computer resources and is fully compatible with Microsoft Windows, from Windows 95 OSR2 to Windows Vista. The distribution of Dr.Web is the smallest of all leading anti-viruses – around 9MB, just 12-15 MB of free space is required after installation! Dr.Web saves and never overloads computers, which makes it indispensable in outdated computers of older generations. Or maybe you have a notebook? Then Dr.Web is the best choice for you!

Dr.Web is user friendly!

Dr.Web is very simple to install. And does not require additional tuning, offering users a comprehensive anti-virus protection from the first second it is installed. “Install and forget” this is about Dr.Web Anti-virus! Dr.Web virus database is updated automatically every time a user connects to the Internet.

Avast on my desktop. I just got a new laptop and unfortunately it came with NIS installed. I will let it go through the rest of the trial subscription and then switch to Avast.

Norton 360 on two computers.

NOD32 v.3.0.621.0 on another.

No significant issues with either product. When March comes around, will probably use Norton 360 or NIS 2008 on all three.

On my new Dell Laptop It's AVG. Even though all I do is play games on it, it just seems wrong to have Windows running without some kind of anti-virus.

For questionable files, I always use virustotal.com and jotti.org. Great for files under 10mb you want to double check!
