    Good Antivirus Deals?

    I just bought a new laptop. After OS initiation, my first move was crapware removal (McAfee VirusScan trial among the other).

    A few months ago, I saw here a thread regarding 12 months free CA Anti-Virus license, which was real deal.

    So, if there is any similar anti-virus promotion, please let me know.

    P.S.> I like Avira Personal Free, but I hate annoying fullscreeen notification after installing the update.

    Thanks.

    got a link to avira personal free?


    oh yeah I would reccomend the free version of avast though. once your 6 months is up you just register for another free key and they allow it. I have had not a single virus since I started using it and if lets say a popup or a site contains a virus it will alert you that it may or does contain a virus

    I like Eset's NOD32. An OEM license can be purchased off Newegg.com for $29.99 for a yearly subscription. Microsoft's Security Essentials is also quite good, is free, and runs on Vista and Windows 7.
    If you have to operate your company behind the scenes or under a fake name, maybe it's time to leave the industry and start something fresh.

    NOD32 sucks , to be honest I have purchased and never used it again I don't know it didn't find any Viruses.

    I m using Avira premium Now and its perfect I had 7 viruses and 5 malwares on my laptop.

    If you want something for Free I'd suggest :

    Avira personal.

    and comodo Firewall

    Google them -

    If you want free antivirus then I would prefer "avast". Avg is also good.

    I agree, NOD32 seems to be the best anti virus software out right now.

    But if you don't feel like paying for it, try avg free. I used it for a few years across all my machines and never had a problem.

    If you are looking for an open source AV with realtime scanning (since winpooch died)

    Moonsecure AV: http://www.moonsecure.com/

    Based on ClamAV :-) works fairly well and is stable. Though does not integrate with the windows security center.

    But for commercial stuff, NOD32 and F-Secure are good choices. NOD32 being at the top of those two.

    Although I love Avira Free Personal, I hate it's annoying popup window. Besides, I do not want free version of antivirus software, I want payed one and I want it cheap. That's the deal I've been talking about.

    So, if there is any, shoot. You may include coupon code, link, etc.

    NOD32 is not as good at all, only the (heuristic) hype makes it great. I would definately avoid it because of my bad experience.

    I would recommend ESET NOD32. It has protected me against virus attacks better than any other antivirus has, including mcafee and AVG. It is definitely worth the price. I am considering picking up a renewal license soon (have been using it ince Nov 15 last year and have never looked back).

    It is definitely worth paying for your antivirus as paid antivirus programs provide better protection for your computer. The best out of all these is NOD32 because it provides great protection and is light on system resources.

    However, if you're going for free A/V, Avira is the best although that popup is damn annoying. -_-

    heres an avira fix that worked for me for the popup. http://jayaprakashkv.blogspot.com/20...-notifier.html It worked but since im not a fan of avira's resource usage I removed it.

    My Favorite Anti Virus EVER. I have used alot, Avast, antivir, my own tools to filter out network traffic, analyze, and look at processes,(this was more of a learning experience then actual protection).
    the best one is called Vipre http://www.sunbeltsoftware.com/Home-Home-Office/VIPRE/
    best one, and I got the enterprise one, took it for a test run, and they gave me a 1 year license for home, for free was a good deal!
