    From experience i have found avast to be very good with windows xp.
    Therefore i am happy to use it with windows 7.
    I did have to create a firewall rule before windows would let the program update though.

    I'm using antivir free , Isn't everyone

    reasoning : It's free , updates regularly , best detection rate , low resource useage

    NOD32 looks promising but seems to be a resource hog.
    Hi smoaky

    I do have one thing to say...39MB's is a "resource hog"?

    Nod32 AV is actually one of the smaller footprints around. Now if you're talking the ESS suite, I haven't used it since I was Beta testing it but I hear the footprint for it is still one of the smallest.

    Just an FYI here

    Problems with Antivir Workstation


    I've tried Antivir Workstation (the version contained in Avira enterprise bundles) on x64. Worked fine with one really anoying exception: sometimes Webguard prevented my browsers from connecting to any server. Both IE and Firefox would simply display a grey, empty window instead of the requested page.

    Quite hard to debug as - for example - ping to the url worked fine and the browser didn't show any error-messages. Disabling Webguard fixed the problem.

    I've now switched to the free version of Antivir and use the W7 Firewall+Defender to replace the additional features of Antivir Workstation. This works fine.

    Thanks for the correction.
    I am actually testing W7 on an old laptop.That is why NOD32 seems sluggish.
    W7 actually runs on 900Mhz CPU with a mere 384 RAM.( Thought what the heck I,ll try installing W7 on this ole laptop and see what happens) and whattya know it runs pretty good!!
    A bit slow but it still runs on the configuration. Try that with Vista!!!
    Also running W7 on my main system.

    I ditched my Antivirus on the 8th of November 2006 and stopped using software firewalls back in 2004 and I have never regretted it once since

    Still not one infection and If I cared about outbound protection I wouldn't have the computer connected to the Internet

    I always win at playing "Spot the Virus"
    Same here. I usually run an online scan about once a month when I'm bored but haven't had an infection since I've stoped using AV protection a couple years ago.

    Run with LUA (non admin), stop downloading pirated software, use Opera/Firefox as your default browser with an updated filter.ini or the noscript plug-in, get a hardware firewall if you don't already..It's really not that hard to practise safe computing and honestly all an AV is gonna do kick out a couple false positives to make you feel like your money was well spent while the real threats slip by undetected .

    Not saying running without an AV is for everyone, just don't let the false sense of security it offers lead to bad browsing habits.

    Isn't Nod32 just an AV? Pretty sure it is, 39MB at idle would be considered a resource hog when compared with an Internet security suite like KIS with the AV, firewall, proactive defense, etc, it sits at 10-14MB at idle and eats less CPU to boot.

    All bs aside if you have to have an AV go with Avast or Kaspersky for 32-bit. Bitdefender on 64, afaik it's the only one that's truely native 64 and doesn't have to hump WOW64 while doing its thing.
