I take back what I've said

Recommended Posts

In past threads I have said that Norton was a good antivirus program then in other threads I said that AVG was even better. Well, today AVG said I had 8 viruses but it could'nt deal with them???

So I uninstalled AVG and Installed Kaspersky not only did it remove or fix those 8 viruses but it also found an additional 10 other viruses and threats and dealt with them all :D

Kaspersky uses more resources than does AVG but I'd rather be secure than infected with viruses.

I have AVG & haven't had any virus it couldn't handle .I did have 2 that it had to remove from safe mode.I also ocassionally check mt PC with the Kaspersky online scanner it has never found a virus so for me AVG is working.But that doesn't mean it does for everyone.

Cholla, Yea AVG was free and it checked up daily and downloaded daily updates :-P It worked really good for a while, and I really liked how it didnt take up many system resources even while scanning system for viruses. Although, all of the sudden my new notebook had infections it could not deal with even in safe mode. If this didnt  happen I would still have AVG.

I was at some questionable websites and this was probably how I got the viruses. Most people dont do this on the internet and therefore seldom have any serious issues with viruses.

I had the BETA version of Kaspersky and was really turned off but 5.0 and anti-hacker 1.8 are truly awsome get'm both for $49.99 at kaspersky.com

This program is a bit less resource hungry than Norton and more powerful than any other Antivirus program out there. I just ran a scan test from sygate on my ports to test my anti-hacker firewall and I am all safe and secure "so says the test"

I must admit.. that Kaspersky does look alright.. I put it on a computer 2 nights ago.. not bad... I have not tested it or ran it on any of my machines.. but it does look promissing..

Well you are going to find out how great it is' Its the best for now and you are going to love it'  anyone with AVG i guarantee you that you will find Trojans and other infections you thought  AVG was taking care of..........

ive never had that problem with AVG, i use it at home and at the office, and i love it. It doesnt slow down my pc and finds everything.

Thats what i used to think about Norton and AVG Pro & Free' I thought they were the best' and that they took care of everythng' But you really need to open your eyes and use real protection against viruses.

I do use the Kaspersky Anti-Virus Web Scanner Beta version 5.0.50.0

http://www.kaspersky.com/beta?product=161744315

When I use this online scan it has never found a virus in my PC so unless this Kaspersky online scanner doesn't find the viruses its other antivirus that you have in your os does then the AVG is finding & stopping the viruses that try to get into my system.It might not at questionable sites.

I web surf where ever I have need to & will deal with viruses if I get them.So for now I will keep using AVG.

OK, now I have been converted, Kaspersky is worth paying for.

My brother's computer has been hosed for a few days now (porn) and he can't explain why (porn).

Both avast! and AVG found and supposedly fixed the Trojan problem, but it kept popping up.

Re-ran avast! and AVG, both said the machine was clean.

So I get home from work tonight and sit down, determined to get rid of the virus.

The first thing I do is run Kaspersky's On-Line free virus scanner.

It locates the two last files containing the virus that the others did not see.

Files deleted, no more sign of the virus (so far).

I'm liking Kaspersky today, thats for sure.

BTW, my brother picked up this virus 1 day after (porn) I reformatted and re-loaded windows 2K for him.

Also had avast! and Spy-Bot S&D loaded and running before I gave it back to him.

AVG (Free edition) for 5 years, clean as a whistle.  Having dealt with quite a few machines riddled with viruses, spyware, malware, trojans, etc.  there is no one product that protects you from all or cleans them all.  If you find it, buy it, then let me know!  :)
