I hate to ask again - what's the best free antivirus?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I just got done reading the topic thread that says avoid all free
anti-virus programs, but I'm still going to ask: "What's the best free
anti-virus program?"  And I'm talking one that does the best job with
catching viruses, worms, trojans, etc.

I see this question asked a lot in here, but the responses always seem
to degenerate into petty arguments between the respondents.

IMHO Avast, <http://www.avast.com/eng/avast_4_home.html .  I think it should
be supplemented by purpose-built malware catchers.  Two are <Spybot Search &
Destroy, <http://www.spybot.info/en/index.html and a-squared,

That's just my opinion and I won't argue about it. ;-

responses.

The best anti-virus is Linux or Macintosh. Screw Windows and it's many
bugs, just get a better OS.

NO !

The *best* anti virus is the person !

Any OS connected to the Internet used by someone who doesn't practice Safe Hex
is at risk.

Bar far the best is AVS:

Just don't opt for the toolbar during installation

Art,

Are you using a PFW? I have seen reports of conflicts with some
versions of some PFWs with AVS.

It seems I have too, in particular Sygate. But I've tried
running Sygate and experienced no problems.
