I am looking also for a new antivirus because my norton licence gonna
I tested a few antivirus (demo versions) the past month.
NOD32: did not work with me, found it strange but got endless problems with
it ... ok, it is like that; but I have no doubt it is a good product
Kaspersky: How is this possible ??? This guy is an old viruswriter and he
still continue in this style. He write something in the header of each file
in order to scan faster. After uninstalling his product, my whole NFTS
filesystem was corrupt... thanks Eugene, but no more with me.
Bitdefender: Excellent product, light on resources, fast updates - good
detection. But the only problem was how to clean zip files, He cleaned it
but the zip file came corrupt. I doubt about the realtime protection of this
scanner. He give warnings about infected files, but he let them trough...
even with the option 'deny access and delete' But this will sure improve in
NAV 2006: Good, a littlebit bloatware and popups, warnings here and there
and requires a newer system. Excellent if you have a strong computer and
F-secure: too heavy on resources... very slow scanning
F-prot: This is what I gonna buy - This fits the best for me and I enjoyed
to use it - simple but excellent. This is really the scanner for me !
Avast ! - My second choise ! Excellent and he does everything the right
way - realtime protection works flawless
