>I don't know what you guys like about Norton Antivirus.<

I don't either. I completely agree with Marthax. It's bloatware.

NOD32 is considered the best according to my standard for 5 reasons

1-Cheap-Price

2-Speedy scanner

3-Excellence virus detecting engine

4- Get your support question in a speedy way.

5-Use less computer resources

No, i don't work for nod32. I have used all your mentioned antivirus software and this one is number 1

I prefer to use stateful packet inspection and application layer filtering and avoid the need for anti-virus software and all the hassles that go with it. Did I mention that Exchange 2003 strips EVERY attachment and drops them on the floor?

We have never had a virus...

Kaspersky. No questions asked. It has been proven that it detects virus's better then any other virus scan out there.

And if you choose Norton or Mcafee, well I laugh at you. Not only are they the same exact engine, but they just don't work good, and they are memory hogs.

I didnot have any antivirus in my computer and it was going all okay.But now when i installed norton it started creating problems for me.I will say if u have win xp firewall and u keep on updating it no virus will reach ur computer.Now i know why norton is not so good.It takes a lot of resources.

For personal use at home & workstation at office Kaspersky AntiVirus Personal 5.0.

For server (Windows Server 2003) Kaspersky Business Optimal.

I've done updates every day and our antivirual protection not bad at all.

Only 3 minuses:

1. It use near 30% of system resourses.

2. Too slow.

3. Many troubles when your license key has expired.
