I have been reading the Virus protection utilities that everyone uses or has used within this topic.
I tend to use AVG and Kaspersky, they do the job enough to find any nasties that may be lurking. I also scan with F-Prot, McCaffee Online, Norton and MicroSoft as well as any added Trojan patches that appear as a quick fix to the latest nastie doing the rounds.
AVG updates loads ,it's free and easy to use. Kaspersky updates quite regular too, I found out it was russian and instantly thought eastern block nasties, it did make me wary at first, but I was wrong it is a really good package and seems stable.
As for Norton, when uninstalling it always seems to make a mess of the system or never appears to remove all its files, and the PC never works quite right after unless you format and start again with a clean install. mine and others experiences with Norton. Anyone else experienced that?
I have tried McCaffee, but as with Norton it never seems to find all viruses, but in saying that neither does AVG (that has missed a few to). I believe in todays climate you cannot really trust just one anti-virus software provider, they all miss some viruses and catch others, so use as many as you want, Panda, Avast, PC-Cillin, etc, by doing this you will most probably be nearly fully entirely protected from known viruses. But you do find that by the time to you have scanned for viruses, you have either forgot what you initially turned the PC on for, or the Midnight oil is burnt out and it's morning.
