Or, save £27.45 and get free Anti Virus software such as Microsoft Security Essentials.

microsoft.com/sec…ls/

Or if you do want to sped, at least buy something decent! Like amazon.co.uk/ESE…1-3

Or Avast which is very good, and free!!

Cold - Avast ftw

Luckily not bought anything yet, had a look at avast and the free protection only gives minium protection so i dont think i would be protected for buying and banking online, after having my bank account emptied last year i am a bit cautious

same thing every single time an internet security is posted.
don't use a paid one, use a free one
no, use a paid one cos they're better
no they're not its just companies being greedy

its pathetic.
the comments about using Avast etc should be deleted and the only ones allowed should be related to the actual product and if anyone has seen it cheaper or not.

free AVs offer limited support, basic protection and often need to be used with other programs to combat the full range of security problems within windows.

a full internet security suite is one program designed to do it all.

you cannot compare the two properly.

sorry but this really bugs me.

free AVs are free for a reason-limited security options and they're an advert for the vendor's full security suite.
its a marketing tool. simple as.

If I wanted to bring my system to a halt,I`d use IE.
No chance I`m gonna pay to do it.!

I'm pretty sure peoples main concern is to stop viruses. The free ones do it pretty much as well as the paid ones. Yes support is non-existant, but you shouldn't really need support, you just install it and let it do what it needs to.

Plus these suites always seem to be bloated and slow down the computer (unless 2010 has had a complete overhaul).

actually the 2009/2010 Nortons HAVE had a complete overhaul and infact won product of the year on AV-Comparatives.org, beating both Eset and Kaspersky.

the much loved AVG didnt even feature in the top 5.

if people weren't so closed minded when it came to this sort of thing and I include IT Techs in that aswell as you 'mate who knows about computers', then people would realise that things can and do change.
AVG has gotten worse and Norton has gotten better.
try to find a bad professional review of the Norton 2010 products.....

oh well after all that i went to my local shop and bought bull guard £27 already have this on pc had no problems with it and i do not want to take the risk with a freebie protection, especially as when u try claim back stolen money the bank they want to know what protection you have and if it is up to date, there is too much of it happening and as i bank online and do alot of shopping online i would rather pay it and make sure my comp is safe from hakers!!!

Nortons slowed my computer down, so i've taken it off and replaced it with AVG complete protection 2 year license paid version, my computer runs faster and smoother now,

I agree with all you say. Everytime an offer like this is posted World War Three breaks out.
It gets quite tedious.

I Ordered the Kaspersky Internet Secruity that was posted on here the other day from Play.com for £14.45 i hope when it turns up that its better than my old Bitdefender was as this Norton would of been my second choice.

Fair enough if you wanted added piece of mind, but I doubt a bank would turn down a claim because you used a free anti-virus program - they are reputable programs.

in b4 some unsuspecting fool mentions AVG lol

AVAST FTW or kaspersky if you want to pay

Quite. This is why it is cyclical as to which products are rated higher than others. The software is only as good as what is available in the virus definitions. Today, product A may be able to detect a certain virus and product B may not. Product B may have new definitions released a week later which may plug the shortfall and also give it the edge over product A by being able to handle better detection rates due to the new updates. However, Kaspersky appears to be consistently regarded as being highly commended - not necessarily due to the amount of viruses it can detect (as this is impossible to rate) but due to speed and ease of use.

Just because a reviewer rates a virus checker which detects all 10 hand-picked viruses whereas another only detects 8 out of 10 does not imply a better product. How about hand picking 10 other viruses and another 10? Would the tables be turned?

Furthermore, encrypted self-executable viruses can not be detected by anybody. It is easy to encode a program by wrapping an executable and a decrypter around malicious software that is encrypted, then releasing the malevolent code into memory avoiding detection by the online scanner since the online scanner intercepts the file system for detection of viruses. This method will bypass the online scanner.

By the way, a free product is limited by features but certainly not definitions and updates.

What I do find amusing are the comments "Oh Brand X is so good as it has removed all viruses on my computer." How would one know that all viruses have been removed? What about the ones that brand X did not detect? Anti virus software can only "make an attempt" and "usually remove" viruses that its definitions are aware of.

you'll find some of the free AVs have staggered updates, meaning they get them less frequently than the premium version.
thats what you pay your money for....
and if you're not paying you can't blame the product for its limitations
