Computer Question

Postby SARG27044 » Mon Sep 12, 2011 11:41 am

What is the best antivirus out there right now? I had to bring my comp back to factory defaults after installing IE9. I had Trend Micro but was not that impressed, and I could reinstall it, but would like some opinions first...

Did I need to mention "Im a PC" :lol: I do have a hardrive about to fail, so I might be upgrading here shortly, but not for a minimum of 1200, for a porn surfer....

anybody that uses "mac" as an answer to "antivirus" questions is retarded.

Just get Microsoft Security Essentials from Microsofts official website if you're using windows which you are.

or learn linux.

quit looking at porn sites and you wouldn't need anti-virus software...
And what are you still doing using IE?? That program is archaic...

if you really want a good one, get Eset Nod32; I rarely get false positives with it. If you are downloading .exe files etc, sandbox them first.
