Anit Virus Software

Post by S7 Panzer on Sat Oct 09, 2010 11:53 pm

I have a friend asking me to fix her computer and I was wondering what type of anti virus software everyone uses. If they can be free that would be great. The problem I see on the computer is all programs work great expect the internet. Any Ideas?

If the other programs "work great" it may not be a virus at all. Maybe a configuration issue. Check her network first. Possible IP conflict, etc. Depends mostly on the error you received. Let us know what that is, and then we can help.

If there was a virus guys, the other programs wouldn't "work great". He's mostly saying an inability to gain internet access, which could easily be something other than a virus. A virus thrives on net access, hence the way they access your PC to begin with. After that, many of them will control your virus software and disable it, but the other programs and registry would be corrupt and you'd know it. Again, just give us a screen shot of her errors and we can help more...otherwise we're all just pissing in the wind.

Personally I'd just go with Microsoft Security Essentials. It integrates and installs fairly easily plus for a novice computer user it doesn't require her to know or do anything. AVG is pretty good as far as protection goes but the newer versions tend to be very processor and ram intensive so it can affect your machines speed quite a bit.

They will all miss things. New malware comes out daily so best you can do is keep up to date and use your brain when you click on links. (Or rather, choose not to click on links)

Microsoft Security Essentials has really impressed me. We got a bad virus on Amanda's not long ago and eventually we just reloaded. She had McAfee then, and I ran AVG on my laptop before it missed a bad virus too - now just Essentials - it catches the stuff McAfee missed. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is a good tool too that can be used to compliment your AV. Can't praise Essentials enough though. I didn't want to like it since it was M$ but for free AV software I feel it is the best. It doesn't bug you to pay em either like AVG-Free does now.

Norton is the best. Its free with Comcast Internet service. There are others like AVG that I think are still free, too.

I got Kasper free for 6 months with my PC so I'm trying it out. Hopefully it doesn't take over my PC like the Norton's and McAfee's due. Otherwise i switching back to AVG or even going to try out the Microsoft one. Free is always good.
