Come on guys,its not recreactional if you start using them in the week.
Any one tested this out on Mac? Currently using Norton.
Havent used an antivirus in years. I am more concerned about tailored ads than i am about a virus infecting my pc. Rather than installing this, i would grab a free AV program which are just as good as the payed stuff. Google is your friend...

Very true. Another issue is cost in CPU cycles and resources as well. Antivirus runs in the background all the time. Not a big issue to most users maybe, but it does have an impact over the long run. If you know what a computer virus is and its methods of spreading, a 3rd party anti-virus is almost useless then. I've not used such software for more than 10 years for example. Know not to open attachments or click links from dodgy emails, to avoid websites which bombard you with adverts for strange downloads, or download anything where there may be doubt about what it is. Keep Windows up to date and don't visit sites you shouldn't be on (you know the ones). For other people without this knowledge it's recommended to have it, but for a lot of people installing Ublock origin (or other similar script blocking) and learning how to use it properly is far more powerful as an 'anitvirus' for safe browsing.

Anti-viruses work in several ways, most will double check files prior to being run for anything suspicious, most will double check files accessed by programs on the hard drive for anything suspicious, most will check changes to your system settings (stored in the registry) for suspicious activity.

The problem is, "what is suspicious?" To answer that anti-virus vendors write "definitions" which spell out what certain viruses do. They also have "heuristic" definitions that are more general and not tied to specific viruses (this is where false positives come from).

What will anti-viruses protect you against?

Accidentally downloading and running most trojans.
Autorun viruses.
What are anti-viruses weak against?

Exploits can run and won't be detected until they try to modify files on the hard drive or relaunch themselves. This is a huge hole because this is how most computers are infected, especially if combined with
Rootkits. Some anti-viruses have rootkit detection enabled, but it's never perfect.
Any malware with the same level of access. Anti-viruses work exactly like malware. The only difference is intent. An anti-virus guards itself against attack by launching itself as a service and as a driver. If a piece of malware manages to get that high, they'll both have difficulty shutting the other down.
No anti-virus is perfect. They can keep you from hurting yourself. But they do not and can not protect you from the most common infection vector: remote exploits, because there's no general way of knowing when a legit program has been compromised, and once you have code running on your target platform you're already infected. Though an anti-virus can help contain the infection at that stage, if it's one the software recognizes as a threat.

tl;dr: It's not useless snake oil. But it's also not a panacea. It's complicated and people who simply install an anti-virus thinking they're safe need to wise up. Best practice is keep regular backups and restore if infected and use lightware, freeware antivirus.
Also Windows by default runs the Microsoft security Essentials / Defender program that comes with Windows. We've had a few instances where other anti-virus software didn't notice a virus but MSE did, and the other way around. Which illustrates the point: Detecting a virus in an executable - or in an already infected PC - doesn't work reliably.

There's two separate worlds here. One world in which users know better than to run these untrusted programs, and one world in which they're going to run them anyways. In the former, the smart user is more reliable than any anti-virus program.
Just use Windows Defender, it's free.

Worst antivirus I’ve ever experienced, it’s run on the machines at work and has to be disabled in some instances due to it maxing the CPU when certain apps run, support were completely useless and is now the first thing we blame when anything is slow (and 99% of the time it is!)

Make sure you give the permision to your apps and make periodical a windows registry run. Also make sure there aren't any traces remaining from previous antiviruses?
If still slow contact bitdefender.

It did have that problem at one point, but it's fine now. They must have patched the issue.

except no, they sell your data and scan everything on your pc and own rights to it.. hence free.

And paid software doesnt analyse and share your data with thirdparties? Main difference with paid antivirus software is that they have a few more features over the free stuff. Whether that useful is entirely relative.
If you take this offer up make sure you don’t have it on auto renew.

What happened with me was first year free with new laptop, second year worth the £20. Third year auto renewed at 60. Yes they did email me but nowadays so much nonsense in inbox didn’t notice. Did manage to get a price reduction to current best offer.

That's annoying, I'm using a old virus scanner and a separate firewall for my systems, never let me down.
Worked well for me. I have just subscribed to it about a week back to keep my current subscription.
I can add a few more devices now using this login as it will not extend current login.
Thanks heat added
Thank you.

Yes. Been using it on mac, windows and android for 3 years without a problem.
The best security I have ever used is ESET NOD32. I swear by this software! Have been using it for nearly 10 years. And even when my trial ran out, it blocked virus attacks.

Also, thank you OP
Thank you for posting @NorthantsPete we have added this to the Highlights section
Terrible software. A trial of Panda antivirus and MalwareBytes both found that it missed several viruses on my pc back in 2017 when I last used it.

Also they were caught stealing customers private data and files and ended up blaming it on hackers. Think it was leaked in documents released by Edward snowden.
Frustrating - 600 heats and no mention on the daily email!

Dont scaremonger - they had an employee data breach (poor password probably or ex employee going rogue" which being IT has happened to many big business.
It wasnt Snowden, dont name drop.
PAnda AV is consistently poorer detection rate and higher false positives meanign it kills files that arent viruses - can be worse than a virus if its a sytem file

It is free. From my own experience, there is a huge difference between AV. This one is the best u can get, again is free. They repeat that offer every 6 months, so keep an eye for it. Theoretically, free as long u can get it on offer.
Personally I’m paying for it. On offer 20£ a year split by 5 and by 12, just to good to be true.

Free means sell out.
You are selling your personal data, usage habits, and more. Read up on free AV 'is it really free'

Nothing is free, you give your hard drive over to the companies in exchange for the software. Buy it or use an offer and you dont.
