This is my 4th year with Avast Antivirus and i love it, im using the free version
Been using ESET for over 4 years; absolutely no problems in performance (various machines) – I’m surprised you’re saying it kills yours… I simply love this software
I’ve also been with Kaspersky (was unable to detect viruses/malware several times and I got infected), Norton (that’s a real memory killer – I don’t recommend it) and McAfee (slower than ESET , but does the job).
Now I use McAfee on my work laptop (company provided) and ESET at home. Seems AVG is quite popular…
I use Norton now, i find it good and it only slows when it decides to run a live update usually when i’m right in the middle of doing something. I have used AVG and Kaspersky, it’s funny though when i changed from AVG free to Kaspersky, Kaspersky picked up a load of stuff that AVG didn’t. I know lots of people that use AVG and never had any problems.
Everything but Nortons. Pick up Avast or Avira, both are excellent.
I use Avira with Comodo Firewall and so far so good. Zero viruses and threats
Anti-viruses are for rookies. That’s my opinion.
