    Anti virus testing

    I downloaded AVG 8 and started scanning my computer.

    It's finding all kind of trojan horses in 1k files

    anyone had similar problms.

    my other anti virus kaspersky doesn't find anything

    didn'T find any reselts about false positves on the web.

    I loaded AVG 8 the other day, it said everything was fine on my PC. So it is not like it false alarms everyone.

    I am not a fan of AVG. I find it takes up too much space on the computer.
    At the Google website you can download the Google Pack free. The SpYware Doctor that comes with the Google Pack,
    I found it to do a better job than AVG. So recently I trashed AVG.

    Spybot is good,and its free indeed.The SpYware Doctor is a great addition to it ! My Pc is equiped with a 3GHz Core 2 Extreme and for ram I have 4GB DDR3 ! It does work fantastic ! Anti Virus : Friends I suggest you consider The BitDefender Total Security 2008 ! It works very very well !!!

    If you need a free anti virus, you can try Avast anti-virus

    The home edition is free...you only need to pay if you want the professional edition.

    information taken from there website:
    avast! antivirus Home Edition is FREE to use but it is necessary to register before the end of the initial 60 day trial period


    click here to download Avast antivirus home edition
    click here to register

    Hey guys, I've tested many anti-virus programs since 1995 & i keep rechecking for the best. IMHO, I prefer to pay for the best anti-virus program out there than to loose my important Documents to a virus. I've tested Norton, McCafee, BitDefender, Kapersky, Avast, AVG, Nod, etc... etc...etc.

    Since 2004, I've been using F-Secure & I found its the best that there is, even if you need to pay for it, though it costs less than to clean up a virus corrupted pc. I found its a company that specializes in virus & internet security, even serving many EU governments & worldwide.

    Unfortunately, Norton is not a virus company, nor McCafee. They specialize in optimizing pc performance( e.g. star product: SystemWorks). BitDefender & Kapersky have been cracked, so their vulnerable.

    The best way to see if your antivirus program is great, first go to PCWorld.com & check their rating. They do Multiple test to antivirus programs to determine who is the best. Second, always do a online scan of your pc. Many of these companies have Online Scanners, where there servers do a virus scan of your pc. I suggest you do many of these from different companies to ensure your pc is safe.

    Then also, the best computer is not a pc, its a mac. There is no virus written for Mac OS X & today you can run pc programs on it too, under the Mac protection.

    Here are my 2 cents & I hope it can help you all.

    Have you tried Online Scanners from Antivirus companies to determine if its correct?

    I use Avira anti-virus. It is free for home use; and spy-bot. The combination works great for me.

    NOD32 is a terrific anti-virus, its engine was written mainly in assembly and it is faster than any other to process full system scans. The rating for virus definition is also excellent.

    Another excellent anti-virus, and probably even better NOD32 is kaspersky, it has very high detections rates.

    I've never tried Bitdefender but it's also well documented and well rated.

    AVG is crap due to its high use of Ram and slow updates, plus over the past few months several flaws were discovered on the AV engine.

    Norton, is slow like shit but I heard that its virus definition database is good and well mantained.
