Which is the best anti-virus program to use – if you want to buy it?
Jan 7, 2009

I know so many people out there are asking about the free anit-virus programs, but I think I would rather pay for a good program that I know is going to work.

So I've researched the freebies and here's what I found. I'd like some feedback, if you don't mind.

• Cyberdefender – Great scanner that removes Trojans, spyware, but need upgrade to remove viruses, comes with 24/7 computer help. NASDAQ Company.

• Norton 360 – Expensive, my experience with Norton was not so good, and it was slow. NASDAQ Company

• Prevx – Good free scanner, cartoon look, only scans – need to buy to remove anything.

• PC Tools – nice interface, private company so who knows how stable they are, but software is fully functional for free.

• SuperAntiVirus – Corny name, but has 12 million users, but I found it a little slow.

• AVG – popular for the free version but it only works 30 Days before you must buy, but we found it slow, and the paid version offers nothing additional.

All of these offer a $29 paid version (except AVG - $34 is cheapest paid version). We are leaning to Cyberdefender, but we would like some feedback on this.

Which is the best free version?

Which offers the best protection/speed balance?

Thank you for your help.
