Avast! or AVG?

Side note: the reason Symantec Antivirus Corporate Edition is so great is that it wasn't made by Norton/Symantec :P

 

It's actually Intel LANdesk Virus Protect with a new skin. :P

Been using AVG for the past year or so. since i scrapped Norton.

 

Jut downloaded Avast a couple days ago, and didn't like it too much... May consider going back to it though. hate the 1 year re-register thing though.

Neither!

Avast even though is free, needs a subscription. It contains ugly skin that makes it harder to use and takes up more resources on the computer.

 

Use AntiVir from http://www.free-av.com/

A free (as in beer) anti virus scanner. Works on Windows, Linux, BSD, Solaris. Does not contain any big bloated interface with skins. Does not eat up all your processor power or memory. Simple and great.

If you had read this post then you would see he has already made his decision.

 

Now please stop bashing other programs, which you seem to be very fond of here.

 

 

 

 

Some programs deserves to get bashed (example, spyware infested mal/nag-ware).

 

Maybe he should change his mind, because a AntiVirus program is supposed to be good at detecting viruses, not have fancy skins with shiny buttons that hogs the processing power and the memory on the computer.

He made his decision, and quite frankly I believe it was a good one. As do many other pc techs.
