try mo pagsamahin yung spybot at avg. Yung spybot ang protection para sa registry tapos yung avg ang active scanner.

AVG 8.0! Meron ako Mcafee dati pero dami pa ring virus na nakapasok. Uninstall ko mcafee tapos download lang ako ng AVG 8.0 tepok lahat ng virus! Just make sure to download the version with serial kasi I don't trust the free version of AVG.

Before I have Norton Internet Security which was Pre installed when I bought my Laptop(Compaq C700) LAST FEB 2008. FYI the OS is Vista Home Premium. The performance was really disappointing.

Then I bought the ESET Smart Security and installed it on the machine. So far I have no complains with the performance and the laptop runs much better/faster.

i had just finished evaluating the following AV software last week as part of our IT security roll out project for one of our clients:

Trend Micro
Kaspersky
Sophos
Avast
Norton

my takes:

Trend Micro, medyo mababa detection rate.
Norton, high detection rate but consumes high system resources
Sophos, lower detection rate than Norton, but higher than Trend, but consumes the same resources as Norton
Avast, high detection rate, low resource consumption, but reportorial requirements are not complete.
Kaspersky, lower detection rate than Avast, low resource consumption, but more reportorial requirements.

Ranking:

a. Avast
b. Kaspersky
c. Norton
d. Sophos
e. Trend Micro

When I was working as an OJT in the world's number 2 IT brand (hahaha hulaan! ^_^ ), they were using Symantec AV and ZoneAlarm firewall for the corporate PCs. It was very effective but consumes too much memory. But because we always keep our laptops in good shape, walang kabagal-bagal. When I left that company, I still looked for both Symantec and ZoneAlarm. I'm still using it now and no problems whatsoever.

ive been with bitdefender, kaspersky and eset.

thus far eset is my choice, relatively small footprint and masipag sa AV definitions. i was led to believe that KAV and bitdefender are too, but in the past while trying out or exploring 0-day malwares i would get 2 or 3 infections from both.

loaded it into an isolated network environment.
used our criterias for evaluation.


I also do IT work and other items to put into consideration are:

1). Number of users in your environment.
2). Hardware specs of your computers.
3). Applications loaded on your computers and servers.
4). Type of security needed on your environment. This depends cz some only need AV and others AV + firewall and other stuff like that.

If your on a corporate environment, I'd pick an effective AV (i like Symantec AV, not Norton) with a very good central administration console which will make the job easier.
If your on a personal desktop or laptop, pick something effective and free...there are tons out there but make sure they're valid ones. AVG is ok i guess but I'm using ESET NOD32 AV
which does the job and leaves a very small memory footprint on your systems (it's not free though). Try Spybot too to clean spyware and adware...they're good too.

Hope this helps! :D
