Re: ** 2013 Anti Virus Poll **

Thanks for the poll SunnyFL See Profile. It's nice to see what folks have.
I'm using MSE on the Win7 64 laptops. Used to be a long-time Avast user but had mega problems a couple of versions ago. May return to Avast if MSE continues to score poorly in AV comparison tests.

Per computer...
• Norton Internet Security 2012
• Microsoft Security Essentials

Thinking about changing from Norton to KIS. GDATA looks great too... but I'm just not so sure as it's pretty new and seems like it might be resource hungry than the others.

Out of curiosity, any reason for not updating to 2013 on the other machine?

What doesn't play well?
For myself, I'm not upgrading to NIS 2013 as it's a complete mess and Symantec is taking FAR too long to fix the bugs since it's release... LAST year. NIS 2012 is a pretty solid product which works well on Windows 7 64-bit.

Oh okay, I didn't know you used KIS2013. I was cuious as to the reason why BlueJay See Profile hasn't upgraded. So it doesn't play well for you compared to KIS2012? More or less the same reason with NIS2013 right now.

Re: ** 2013 Anti Virus Poll **

For Windows:

MSE for AV and malware.

For malware: Spyware Blaster, Superantispyware, and malwarebytes.

ADDENDUM: I do wish that MSE would automatically download definitions daily like the free Avast does for my Mac.

For Mac:

Avast AV

As norwegian said, KIS 2013 doesn't play well. I had upgraded to 2013 because I was having difficulties seeing images on the comcast forums. This was on my machine, the husband's was still on 2012 and I just didn't get around to doing an upgrade to his. And right now I'm still trying to decide if I want to stay with 2013 or revert back to 2012 on mine..

My workstations use MSE for Win7 and Malwarebytes in tandem, both running live.
