As there are many antivirus softwares out there, which is the best antivirus software in your opinion?

I have heard that antivirus software makes you computer slow, is this true?

Many people say that Norton AntiVirus is the best software. What do you say?

I have never used any antivirus software. My computer has been infected with some malicious virus/es and the contents of all my important documents have changed to some strange characters. Is there any way to restore my documents?

I use [url=http://free.grisoft.com /]AVG free edition[/url]. It works fine for me.
Hi Jackson

I use AVG Free Edition as well. In addition to it I have [url=http://www.spywareterminator.com /]Spyware Terminator[/url] installed on my computer. It is also free and prevents malware of all kinds from invading your computer.

Hi Jackson6612,

I personally feel (althoug most people out there agree with me) Eset's nod32 is the best antivirus software .Its not a java app's and it does'nt consume much of RAM its simple and effective.Just run a scan in safe mode and see what happens.

i've gone through this situation and after a lot of struggle i feel i found 'THE ONE'.
i am using NOD32

and i think it very good

Ever heard of Kaspersky or Panda?
Jackson6612As there are many antivirus softwares out there, which is the best antivirus software in your opinion? It depends, there are a lot. Kaspersky and NOD32 used to be the best. Then Antivir became a good one too. I don't know what the situation is now. BTW, Antivir had a free version too.

I have heard that antivirus software makes you computer slow, is this true? Yes. Some can slow it down pretty much.

Many people say that Norton AntiVirus is the best software. What do you say? No, most people who know about antivisuses say it's the worst. Or at least it was the worst until recently, As I said, I don't know the situation now.

I have never used any antivirus software. LOL, then you definitely got into trouble... My computer has been infected ...there! As predicted 5 seconds ago... with some malicious virus/es and the contents of all my important documents have changed to some strange characters. Is there any way to restore my documents? I really don't know. Probably not.
Notes:
Having the best antivirus in the world doesn't prevent you from being infected.
Firewalls, security patches and updates play an important role, and I'd say much more important than the antivirus itself.
If you want an application to protect you, like an "antivirus", make sure it can protect you from "malware" in general, not only viruses. Viruses are out of fashion nowadays. Emotion: wink

Thank you, Kooyeen. I always find your replies very helpful and interesting. By the way, what is a security patch?

Kind regards, Jackson
