Thanks for the heads-up. Sounds like it should have a lower resource overhead than an actual anti-virus program, so I think I'll take a look.
There are many ways malware can get into your system, web surfing, email, port scanning, dodgy peer2peer sites, or even on infected USB/CD's, to gain protection from every possible route in you need to sandbox everything. Given there are many free AV programs, Microsoft even bundles Defender in with Windows now, you would be ill advised NOT to use AV.
Even the best AV will not catch brand new threats, it takes time to get samples, analyse them and get the the updated out, but it can (and does) frequently stop many old bits of malcode that still circulate on the internet...
But if you have a good firewall and sandbox your browsers, then surfing should be safe without employing an anti-virus?
Safe is a relative term. I run most programs that access the Internet sandboxed without an anti-virus or windows defender running and have never had a problem that hasn't been fixed by clearing the sandbox. BUT I also have well-partitioned drives, I have the actual sandbox on a separate drive to my system drive and I also make regular back-ups which I then scan with an anti-virus program.
The simple answer is that there is no one way that is guaranteed to protect you 100% (apart from maybe running a LiveOS i.e. an OS like Puppy Linux loaded into RAM and cleared on shutdown).
The point of this post was to try to make people aware that there are options other than constantly running an anti-virus program.
As other people have mentioned there are all manner of nasties that can enter your computer and even an anti-virus program is only as good as its database.
It really comes down to 'Horses for Courses'. I got sick of the system hog that was anti-virus/defender etc and would prefer to rely solely on Sandboxie for day-to-day protection. Other people may not.

That was pretty much my thinking. I actually use separate PCs for "recreational" computer activities, and it would be handy not to have to run an anti-virus progam on them.

And/or Opera VPN found here http://www.opera.com/computer

Thanks, been a long time since I tried Opera. Didn't know it came with a VPN included, but free usage gives one only 600Mb per month. Found the free & unlimited Tor a bit too slow.

But if you have a good firewall and sandbox your browsers, then surfing should be safe without employing an anti-virus?

Malware writers write malcode for a living,. they are no longer poeple in bedrooms, with the rise of the cryptolocker family of code, its a high financial gain buinsess and they can pay for the best poeple. Heck there are even groups now that run it as a service, they do the code, and guarantee it runs for a % age of your profit. Sounds odd but they get money but don't have to take as many risks or chance it being traced back to their servers.

The writers know about sandbloxes, and many malware will be able to detect if its in a VM or sandbox and not execute the payload, or wait until its out of the sandbox before executing. Some are even know how to get out of specific VM/sandboxes.

At the end of the day its you computer and your data, how you use it is up to you, but you should at least consider what the results of your chopices could be.

I hesitate to post this for any backlash but why not just run your programs sandboxed rather than using an anti-virus?
I would suggest that sandboxing is reserved for the more technically minded and that would still not prevent all dodgy files
Surprisingly it isn't. I've been using Sandboxie for well over 3 years now. Never had any problems. I've been hit twice by dodgy sites but just deleting the sandbox completely fixes it. All I'm saying is this I would personally take Sandboxie, a well partitioned drive and regular backups over active virus protection any day of the week. Its a shame that most people aren't aware of the program :(
I've just got my first Mac (2nd hand) what is Sandboxie ? Is it something like running virtual machines? I wouldn't mind some more information about what it is and how it works. Sounds decent from what you've mentioned.
Just googled it.... Not for Mac lol...anything similar on Mac? I'll check out sandboxie on my PC.

I'm pretty sure linux has a built-in sandbox function (though you may need some type of app to configure it). I don't know, I don't use a Mac.

Used Bitdefender Total Security for a few years now, great product, but awful customer service if you ever need to get support. I had to contact them twice with simple subscription enquiries, it took them 2 weeks to reply on both occasions. (only after I have raised a complaint).

McAfee, in my experience, is effectively malware. Possibly not as bad as it used to be (see comment below).

Sorry Op

Recently had to remove from lappy as pre installed. shocking how it slows down your pc.

"Cullies" spot on. Forget the "they've improved over the last 4 years". If you want to slow down and screw up your computer go ahead. Take a look at its creator....says it all.... http://venturebeat.com/2014/09/15/john-mcafee-comes-out-swinging-for-net-neutrality-while-blasting-att-and-verizon/
anyone bought it already and like to share it here?
Yea I must admit since installing this on our pc it has got a hell of a lot slower then before plus it's always scanning in the background which I think is unnecessary tbh.

Still I suppose I'm safe from the hackers wanting to know what websites I'm visiting the nosy gits! :{

It's worth pointing out that most if not all by now ISP's provide some sort of anti virus software with their broadband supply - so check your account before buying anything.

Just advice for those that may benefit :)

Well I've got McAfee and it didn't cost me a bean with BT - nor did it cost me any less not to use it - free and included with subscription.
Prior to that was with Sky broadband and exactly same thing, included free in subscription.
Might be worth looking at what's included in your subscription as most ISP's offer it for free with a broadband service.
Ah my ironic comment must be too subtle.... you'd have to pay me to install this software onto my machine, is what I meant. :D

I see this is now £12.98 but free delivery.
I've found Bitdefender pretty good, although as with all of them there's an impact on boot time. You can turn off boot sector scanning at startup which has minimised the impact, but I guess that's at the expense of a layer of protection.
R0adRat
if you prefer Bitdefender it's a similar price here also on offer
I've never used it myself but they seem well matched, though Bitdefender drops half a point on performance, see https://www.av-test.org/en/compare-manufacturer-results/ for thorough, independent test results.

Used to use kasperky when I got it free with banking with Barclays. Now use bullguard which is awesome imho and can get it for less than £20 for 3 pc'S which I am happy to pay
New reworked Norton is totally different beast. I got 3.0 standard version free with Atom tab/convertible and I'm really impressed with its small footprint. Personally I use Kaspersky due to its little bit better detection rate (plus free with my bank account) but I have to give credit to Symantec for all the improvements they done.
jdbigguy
JustLikeArkwright
If you're paying out, most people don't need to, get Webroot, exceptionally lightweight and will play happy if you also use something like Malwarebytes.
So if "most don't need to" then you must believe some do. That suggests Norton does stuff that Webroot doesn't. As you have made these claims can you explain what's the difference (other than price) between the two?

Webroot is cloud based as opposed to traditional downloading of definitions and runs with a tiny memory footprint. Ideal for the average online user who doesn't require/need souped up suites nor dabbles with pirated software or the darker regions of the web. For others I'd go for Avira Free or Bitdefender Free backed with some sort of anti-malware.

Norton was always too bloated and clunky for my liking, it used to bury itself in your system making it an absolute pain to remove. If it has drastically improved in the decade+ since I last used it then fair enough. Personally I've never found many fans of it, certainly few and far between in the security realm.

Will be cold as there are plenty of free versions which are better than this so why pay.
Which free antivirus programs are better than Norton?
There are better paid solutions, but nothing free which provides the updates and security cover provided by Norton.

Having none at all is better than Norton.

Norton is worse than a virus.


What are you basing your information on?

Can you provide any evidence that Norton is as terrible as your stating..

Norton had a bad rep and were terrible 5/6 years ago and if your still basing your opinion on out of date information rather than latest review scores.

(Translated) Note posted on the chip.de site:

Note
In their own right: Due to a misunderstanding with our partner AVG, we assumed to be able to give "Internet Security" on Christmas Eve to the CHIP-users. However, it is the annual license of a specially adapted version of AVG Antivirus Premium . We regret this confusion and hope that you, dear CHIP users, still have fun with the full version and also without "Internet Security" a nice Christmas celebration.


With best regards,

Nope, all I get is "503 Service not available, Sorry, the requested server is currently unavailable. Cause may be high load or maintenance.". Same thing reported in the comments as well.
EDIT: Finally got it to download, but it is what others are saying, this is AVG Antivirus and not AVG Internet Security.

503 Service not available, must be pretty popular.

Just to add, a lot of the German comments on the page are saying they were getting the Antivirus, not Internet Security.

Got this and plugged it into my wired switch in the loft to create a more powerful access point in the loft.
Works great.
Only problem is I cannot connect to the TP-links Web admin pages.
Tried the http://tplinkwifi.net/ but that either gives DNS errors or says 'Oops you are not connected to your TP-link network'
I checked my main Asus Wifi router for attached devices and the Tp-Link does not appear in the list.
It does list the laptop I connected wirelessly to the Tp-Link as a wired connection!!

Does anyone know how to access the admin web pages? I also tried the usual 192.168.1.1 etc but that just takes me to my main Wifi router...
Just to answer my own question - in case it help anyone else; I had to unplug the ethernet cable from the Tp-Link and then I can access the Admin pages. Once the ethernet cable is plugged in and connected to the main router you can no longer access the tp-link admin pages.

only suitable for travel within the UK or for stunters that would like to build wonky power tower adaptor stacks.
Should have been delivered with EU clip on at least and TP-link do not offer the part as a spare.
Thought your comment was over the top considering 99% of UK purchased small appliances do not come with EU plug adaptors either.
Hardly a big deal to spend a quid and hardly consider it as a wonky tower stacker - http://cpc.farnell.com/pro-elec/1518a-wht/travel-adaptor-uk-to-european/dp/PL15135
I bet most of those 99% of small appliances do not get labelled a "travel" device. There are about a gazillion competing devices out there that are called just what they are without pretending to ve suited for something they are not (or no more then (cheaper) alternatives).
Have to agree with you. Might be a small thing, but when something gets labelled a travel device then is should be able to travel without additional adaptors etc.
I think the overall device is quite clunky sized - I would have preferred if it was flatter and wider rather than sticking out so much. Cant plug it into a socket behind a cupboard without moving the cupboard forward several inches.
Also cant go under the cupboard on an extension socket - even though there is considerable clearance!

They are a really well established computer security firm like emsisoft and alike, big big name brand in the sector I'm installing this as I write this and hope to test the engine and get back with pros and cons but do thank the op for this, as missed this years free av engine software giveaways up until I found this and it is something I am eternaly greatfull for

Update: http://www.wicar.org/test-malware.html went here tried every threat on the page and it picked them all up in sophos home it's actually very effective and doesn't appear to kill the power of the system while doing it either, a bit like the 360 total security doesn't another good security.Not sure how that fares on the test I did with Sophos?

After spending some time looking for a 2TB USB 3.0 Portable HDD I picked up one of these a few days ago. Finally got round to setting it up with my Xbox One tonight. Sorry this didn't get any warmer - especially considering a Tesco deal for £60 has gone over 500 Degrees.....

Did this go so cold just because it had been available on Black Friday for under £50? I'm looking for a USB 3.0 Portable HDD to use with my new Xbox One S/EA Access. I have some vouchers to put towards the purchase & thought it looked like a good price for a none refurb on the High Street. I vae added heat to make it slightly less chilly (-143).

..And I salute you for it :)

If you want to go down the free route Avast is a far better bet.

Maybe AVG is free just now because they've been bought by Avast.... 'clearing' stock ...

I'm a big fan of Sophos from using the enterprise product going back 18 years ago. However i'm not sure i'm keen on having to use a web based portal for home use but trying it out to see how it goes. Currently I use Kaspersky free through Barclays but sometimes that can be a pain in the ar$e for being overbearing trying to install software.

Indeed, no matter how much ram this has McAfee will be hungry for more!
Whenever I get a new PC or laptop I IMMEDIATELY uninstall any McAfee product and install AVG Antivirus instead. McAfee products are installed by hardware manufacturers because it helps them sell you more hardware to cope with the demands of the bloatware.

how easy to upgrade the ram in these
If it's anything like an HP laptop it will involve removing the entire laptop base, and then lifting out the motherboard, because the memory chips are underneath the main board.

Kaspersky works well for me
You're better off protecting your computer with a wooden spoon. Cheaper too.

personally I did not get on with AVG or it did not get on with my machine (used to be a favorite when I had XP) - I now use Comodo free as it has a great firewall where you can just block every thing when you want (I use win7 and it works v well)

I moved onto comodo too.

Do have a Kaspersky internet security that I got from HUKD, from around June this year, posted at £1.99 and there was a 5 device deal for under four quid, and you get it free if you are a Barclays customer.

I find these deals pointless because after 6 months you're left without protection. I'm sure you can find a decent antivirus, which is free with decent features - Google is your friend. I'm still voting hot for the find only.

The mobile security will just return to being plain old BitDefender antivirus without the additonal mobile security bells and whistles.

Unless you use a Linux distro an anti-virus (a good one not crap like AVG) is needed that goes for Windows and Mac.
Not entirely true, I haven't purchased an antivirus in years (and also don't use the free downloadables like AVG). Windows has it covered themselves with windows essentials and windows security. Never had a problem after getting rid of the additional antivirus, yet when I used to use Norton I got hacked :/ also nobody I know now use any purchasable antivirus. All seems a bit of a con.
Good luck to you if you are relying purely on Windoze protection. It has certainly improved over the past few years, but still isn't really good enough.http://www.pcworld.com/article/3025889/windows/tested-microsofts-windows-defender-antivirus-is-less-awful-than-it-used-to-be.html
No anti-virus/anti-malware is perfect. If you happen to get hit by something new then the AV isn't going to know about it and that's just bad luck.
By the way, how do you know that you don't have a problem with the Windows version? How do you know that there's no malware lurking? Even with Kaspersky running I still run an occasional scan with an alternative such as the free version of malwarebytes, just in case they missed something. Have you actually checked that you don't have any problems? The presence of malware isn't always obvious ...

Valid point, may have a check about and make sure everything is as it seems
