That is a moving target. Some do better than others from month to month.
Here is the best resource for you to make an educated decision:
www.av-comparatives.org

There are a few considerations that I have found over the years:
Microsoft's Security Essentials will slow your computer down.
European companies like AVG and Avira are hard to work with when you have a problem. Either you are making an international phone call or using their email support.
Free AV software is not as reliable or as secure as paid AV software.
AV software that is not up-to-date is like not having AV software at all.
Installing Windows/Apple updates is just as important as having quality, up-to-date AV software.

Please vote for my solution if it helps.

HOW I DELETE VIRUS HALP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1?


The best way to get rid of a virus is not to get them in the first place by running Internet Security Software. My favorite is Kaspersky Internet Security, I've never had a virus and I go on all sorts of websites.

Since you already have a virus, here are some things that you can do to get rid of it:
First, buy a professional anti-virus software program or download a free one. My favorite free anti-virus software program is AVG Antivirus.
http://www.avg.com/us-en/free-antivirus-download

If you cannot install a software program because the virus is so bad, you can try an online virus scanner. My favorite is Bit Defender's online scanner. It is free to use.
Free Online Virus Scan

Sometimes viruses turn out to be a result of something other than a virus like Malware, Spyware, or Adware. These nasty problems are not always caught by anti-virus programs, so you may need a combination of an anti-virus program and Malware Bytes (also free) to get rid of your problem.

Good luck to you!

Tip

Top 5 Paid Anti-Virus Software


With the brand-new Windows 7 operating system released late last year, many computer users opt to install some sort of anti-virus. There are free versions available, but are not routinely kept up-to-date as a paid version. Plus paid versions offer a better support and look nicer to the eye. Here are my best anti-virus programs for 2010.

1. GData Anti-Virus 2010
www.gdata-software.com $25 (one year, single PC license)
Based off of two free anti-viruses BitDefender and Avast, German developed GData brings the two together to form the best anti-virus. GData detected 99.95% of all threats tested and offered the best detection of adware. With its relative low-cost GData is my recommendation for best anti-virus.

2. Symantec Norton Anti-Virus 2010
www.symantec.com $40 (one year, single PC license)
Coming in a close second is the more popular Norton Anti-Virus. The detection rate was 99.49%, just shy of GData. With a great user interface and design, Norton remains one of the better anti-virus programs in 2010 and may better suit non-techie users.
3. Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2010
www.kaspersky.com $60 (one year, three PC license)
In previous years, Kaspersky has always been at the top, but with this year it has slid down to third. Kaspersky has a wide range of features including a firewall and advanced virus blocking but fails to provide a slick, user-friendly interface unlike the first two anti-virus programs which can get frustrating and confusing. The malware detection also lacks which maybe a problem on some users PC's.

4. BitDefender Anti-Virus 2010
www.bitdefender.com $30 (one year, three PC license)
BitDefender is a decent anti-virus program. Although the detection rate is 99.66%, the second best in the field. What it lacks is a good user interface and fails to remove threats. Only 90% of threats detected were removed successfully. This is defiantly a bargain on price but lacks in some areas where it maybe useful.

5. Panda Anti-Virus Pro 2010
www.pandasecurity.com $50 (one year, three PC license)
Panda Anti-Virus Pro had a 99.83% detection rating, earning it the best in the field. Although it can detect threats, it did poorly in behavioral scans of the PC. Panda also does not come with its own firewall, unlike all the anti-virus programs mentioned. The user interface needs some work around the edges and design could be better. Panda will get the job done, but is a last-ditch option for paid anti-virus programs.

Before you buy, make sure to do research and know what product you want to buy. Don't let the sales people influence you to go with the costlier option, because they say its better. Trust your research and be smart.

Hi my computer has a bad virus that i cant get rid of. ive tried a lot of programs but my computer is still the same.


ave you done a full virus scan with up-to-date anti-virus software?

If you don't have any anti-virus software and you use the Internet, you REALLY need to get some! My preferred anti-virus package is Norton Anti-Virus but, if you want a free copy in a hurry, download AVG Anti-Virus from www.grisoft.com - that's also excellent smile.gif

I have webroot anti-virus and it consistently is being turned off after I get on the internet. Is it likely malware or a virus causing this? Actually, it is the firewall that is being turned off.


Chances are it's a virus or malware. Download an anti-virus program to a disk or to a flash drive. Run it and see if you can find a virus. Here's a link to one of the best anti-virus progams. (In my opinion)
http://avg.en.softonic.com/
Hope you solve the problem. You might also try Malwarebytes

Try to down load AVG virus program and it is


It's usually indicative that you either already have an antivirus program installed (anti virus software treats other anti virus software as a virus) or you have a virus. Here are several links. The first is for the free version of AVG 9.0
This link if for a free online anti virus program by Trend Micro Systems called Housecall
I'd recommend a full anti virus scan on Housecall. After which you could either choose to continue to check on a regular basis or for realtime protection, download and install AVG 9.0.
I hope this answers your question. All the Best!

Connect USB drive to USB port.When icons appears in My Computer, right click on it. A popup menu appears showing option for virus scan.By clicking on it scan the entire drive.
But dont ever open that USB drive, if there is a possible trojan. because when you will open that USB drive, the trojan will be copied into your hard drive automatically.
Best way to remove trojan is to completely format your USB drive.

My Acer Aspire 3680 is extremely slow, breaking up, giving error messages. Started yesterday but has gotten continually worse since then.


Have you installed any new programs recently?
Definitely sounds like spy-ware or a virus, check your system out. If you don't have anti-virus software installed, go here:http://shop.trendmicro.com/trialpay/
and run the anti-virus scan. I'm guessing you've got an infectected PC. For a free anti-virus program, you can go here: http://free.avg.com/download-avg-anti-virus-free-edition If after running the anti-virus scan your machine doesn't run better, please post back for more suggestions and best of luck to you!

2009 anti virus program keeps on poping on the computer screen. It's massing up my software.


Hi nhnvk,

Hope you have anti-virus and anti-spyware programs If so, boot your computer to "Safe" mode with networking. Update your anti-virus and anti-spyware programs. Then run the programs either one at a time or simultaneously (tip: run both programs twice). If this does not work, then the next best thing to do is to reformat your hard drive and re-install all your programs. Of course you'll need to back up all your pertinent files.

Good luck and thank you.
