Rhomal Posted February 6, 2009 Share Posted February 6, 2009 Well while Mcafee has proven a loyal servent to me since DOS it is time we parted company. It seems from recent compairsons its really slipping in its ability to detect non-virus malware and becoming one of the slower scanners out there (However norton is by far the worst across the board of the big names). With that said I am looking at either Avira or AVG and wondering if anyone here has used either and could help me go in one direction or another. First and foremost high dectection of virii, trojans, worms, rookits amd email scanner are my biggest needs/concerns. Then speed, low system resource usage and false postivites and finally bells and whistles. I don't need a firewall (behind a router) and other such things. The virus/malware aspect is the most important to me, other utils things are nice but not needed. Any input appreciated.

For either God can not prevent the mischief of Satan, in which case he is not omnipotent; or else He could do so if he wished, but will not, in which case He is not benevolent. Fortunately, being a pagan witch, I am not called upon to solve this problem." - Doreen Valiente --- Expecting "innovation" from Bioware is like expecting "normality" from Valve -Moatilliatta Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
