It always installs updates so thats not it .I guess there might be a few extras but I have never had a virus get past the free version.

I am voting hot even though mine is free because its an excellent product. I dont understand why people stick to paying £30 odd quidd each year for Norton.

There's three computers now at home so I bought this a few weeks ago.
Works great with no problem. It gets on with it's job quietly in the
background. This version has a firewall and other little bits and bobs.
You can't go wrong at £3.95 for three users.

The trouble is people are brain washed into Norton & are too scared to try an alternative even if it saves them money

LOL,totally agree they prefer a programme that uses so much RAM etc and slows your computer down so much just because of a name that isn't even that good of a name,which has baffeled me for years, but i remember when Netscape used to be number 1 browser and you was happy with a FREE payg dial up connection......

Personally, i don't rate AVG. I much prefer Norton's 2010 and Nod32 antiviruses.....but at this price, it's a giveaway. I'm pretty tempted.

To those asking if it's worth paying for......seriously. Do your research. You get what you pay for with your 'free' anti-viruses. Do you honestly believe you're really really protected?? lol :-)

Well its served me well. I use my laptop every day & not once has anything got through & I have been given warning from the AVG system when anything has tried. I have used Norton previously & had quite a few viruses get through with Norton so my money even when its free is with AVG so you dont get what you pay for as you quoted.

Do you really think they'd give you something for free?? Sure, it'll catch some viruses, but it's not real-time protection etc.

Out of the free AV's, yes, AVG is probably the best. But i've just purchased the paid version because i have used previous editions and the paid version is alot better.

Yes! meaning as good as with paid-for software. There is NO 100% protection anyway, so be sensible about what you do.

Main reason I bought it is that the free version only updates once a day unless you force an update, this you can set to whatever period you want from 1 minute upwards.

you're so wrong its funny.
AVG is way more of a resource hog than most of the free AV's out there.
it has no firewall, only basic AV protection, gets updates less often, no vendor support, no online ID protection, No rootkit proection.
it even says BASIC security on the AVG download page.

am currently using Norton 360 v.40 and its using less than 10mb of ram
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b309/spike77/norton.jpg

I actually switched from Eset Smart Security (made by the makers of Nod32) to 360v4 and am very impressed.
I spent years as a PC tech hating the darn thing and now am a convert.

as has been mentioned, nothing is 100% but go pay a visit to shields up website and test how vulnerable your computer is with your current security.

I've tried a lot of the main culprits over the years cos we used to get freebies at work from companies trying to get us to sell their products.
tried Bit Defender, PC Cillin (Trend Micro) for a year each.
Loved Eset's stuff, hated AVG from day one.

it gets some terrible reports at AV Comparatives too.
banned#21
you're so wrong its funny.
In a way I am as it would seem the latest version has had the memory hogging problem fixed.

"Symantec has also worked on AV’s memory hogging flaw, which they claim the lightest AV suite around and with the help of Smart Smart-up Manager, a user can fasten up the boot time by up to 41 percent on Windows 7 PCs or save up to 3 hours in a year."

I wouldnt know this as I stopped using it a while ago because every other version was heavy on the memory.

Avg free is perfectly adequate for the normal user not the best but it's free. Avg internet security 9 has all the tools and is also very good.

I'd bet my wife that far more people would vote Nod32 better than Norton. (I couldnt lose either way)

An independent report on which Internet Security for you http://www.av-comparatives.org/index.php


The February 2010 report quoted above by splender shows the Avast free version and Norton getting a higher score (Advanced plus) than the paid for AVG 9 (Advanced). The report shows:

Total detection rates (19 products tested)
7th Symantec 98.6%
11th Avast 97.3%
15th AVG 94.2

False positives
8th AVG gave 10 false alarms
Joint 9th Symantec and Avast gave 11 false alarms

I have used Avast for many years on our three PCs, it has found viruses and (so far) none have got through. Avast ask you to re-register annually for the free version (I guess so that they can confirm their user base). Remember that if you change anti-virus products, it is safest to download the new product first, then disconnect from the internet, uninstall the old product, reboot, install the new product, reboot, then connect back to the internet. PCs don't like having more than one anti-virus working at one time.

Avast have just changed their user interface, so if that was what put you off, take a look again (I am not associated with the company except being grateful to them for providing a quality product for free).

The Avast download page at Cnet concludes:
Avast's recent independent third-party testing has been notably solid, able to hold its own against better-known programs from Symantec and Microsoft. Avast 5 Free lacks features in the paid upgrade including antispam measures, a testing sandbox, a Script shield, and a firewall. Even without those, Avast Free 5 is probably the strongest, free antivirus currently available.

Avast gets my vote here, I'd steer clear of AVG because of what Duffbeer has posted. You get for what you pay for when it comes to anti-virus protection.

well having used Nod32 for a year and then Eset Smart Security for 2, Am surprised by my own reaction to Norton 2010.

You also edited the part where you said I was a nob.

anything else you should know about me?

Am CompTIA A+ and N+ certified with a 98% pass and have worked as a PC Tech up until being made redundant 2 years ago, am hoping to move back into it again in the next 6-12 months after being approached by another company.

In the meantime I took a sales job at Currys and feel completely demoralised!!!!
goes against everything I believe in to work there but it pays the bill (just) for now!

my vote Nod 32. any it jobs out there

I recently had to educate myself quite quickly on malware as my computer was under attack. I had the paid version of Kaspersky 2009, with firewall and realtime protection. A couple of trojans had slipped through which was only picked up on a full scan.

I downloaded a whole heap of free malware scanners from cnet, which picked up MORE trojans which were missed by Kasperskys real time protection and scanner.

Removed them, thought I was all good. Turned protection settings to high as a precaution.

A week later I decided to turn the HIPS protection on Spyware Terminator (free product) on. It picked up 3 Trojans attempting to run - one was the evil logo1_.exe. It managed to quarantine and stop it running but was not able to remove, so I decided to roll back the system. These new instances were dropped on my system only a few days prior - with paid Kaspersky set to high.

Oh, and if you think its because Ive been naughty/stupid with my computer so it will never happen to you, one was identified as coming from a TV review website!

In conclusion - even the best, paid, complete protection packages arent completely effective. Dont think because you paid, youre safe! Use the other excellent FREE malware scanners to compliment whatever anti-virus product you choose to use!

Never mind as you said, it pays the bills which is the main thing.I am a bit surprised they took you on though last time I was in there they were carrying out a training session with the staff..........Everyone repeat after me "would you like an extended warranty for that pack of AA batteries you've just bought?"

i was out of work 9 days, needed a job, it was less money and less hours but it gets mad up in working tax credits now and if am very very very luck, some bonus from selling all those warranties and mobile broadband agreements!

got £153 over Xmas, then £38 in jan!!!

did the 3 day FIVES training, told them I thought it was crap, refused to pretend a sale was a bit of wood and break it like a pretend Karate expert...since I hold a brown sash in Kung fu with 10 years experience in different fighting styles too.
told them they were using an ancient killing art as a metaphor for flogging tellies and PCs and it was disrespectful to people like me, who practice the art.
actually got an apology from the regional manager!

then he stopped speaking to me at all.

No. Not at all. You're not as STRONGLY protected unless you pay. You get what you pay for.

If you disagree, you're stupid. It's fact. Think about it. You're a company, you want to ENTICE PEOPLE IN.......you give them a nice little sample of what's on offer, but if they want the whole cake, they need to buy it.

No one is going to give you anything for free that they could make profit from. Get that into your head and maybe you wont be so tight when it comes to protecting your PC from Malware, Spyware & Viruses.

The new Microsoft Securiet Essentials ( http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/ )
is free and getting a lot of favourable reviews (well, favourable when comapred to the other free ones anyway :-) ):

http://download.cnet.com/Microsoft-Security-Essentials/3000-2239_4-10969260.html

That works on 32bit XP, 32bit and 64bit Vista and 32bit and 64bit Windows 7.
If you've got 64bit XP then I'm afraid that Microsoft has left you high and dry. Again.

And before people jump on the bandwagon saying that Microsoft Anti-virus produts are rubbish - this one is brand new - it works; it seems reasonably lighweight (certainly compared to Norton) ; it doesn't require annual registration and it doesn't badger you every 10 minutes to upgrade to a "professional" version!

thats what I spent 10 years telling people. 4 of those were as a PC repair tech and the last 2 selling my soul at Currys.

free av's are like sample bits of pastie at greggs.
put enough free ones together and eventually you'll have a full pastie.
of you could not be so tight and buy a full one!

companies are there to make money.
they don't make a free AV cos they like you and wanna be your friend, they do it so hopefully you'll like it and wanna purchase the premium version.

if the free AVs were so good, there'd be no need for paid for ones.
they'd all be out of business cos no one would buy them

but the flipside of the coin is how do you put money into R&D of the companies who produce ONLY free AVs?
adverts?

its a good idea cos microsoft hove no hidden agenda, they don't need to make money from a premium version cos you're already using their operating system and its the reason for such wide spread cybercrime and virus infections!

so they help you protect the weaknesses in their own software by providing a nifty little bit of software to help combat whoever is trying to exploit their OS!

its probs fine for a lot of home or light users, for someone more advanced i'd still reccommend one of the big boys like Eset, Kaspersky or Symantec, who actually dedicate their WHOLE business to this sorta stuff.
