Which manufacturer makes your AV/Internet Security suite? I did not list ALL the possibilities but i think i have most bases covered.

 

I decided to list just the manufacturer instead of the individual packages as that would create way to many choices. All choices are in no particular order, i just listed them as i thought of them. Feel free to discuss AV/IS choices in here.

 

I use Eset Nod32 Smart security.

I use AVG free, and have done for years now. My son uses Avast for no particular reason other than it is also free.

 

EDIT: I guess like some others here I could do without one as it's been years since I have had an infection, but I still like the warm fuzzy feeling I get from having one. You know "to be sure to be sure".

None, unless I'm testing something for my customers.

Thats was a bad option to leave out. None now added to the list.

I worked in a business with NO standardisation.

 

I chose to go with Avira, after AVAST, AVG Free, Norton360, McAffee, and PC-Cillin (on various PCs throughout the network)

 

DID NOT pick up 4 viruses! 4! and only one was 'new'! Avira even renamed a txt file at home to a zip, unziped it, and alterted me to my little virus cache I like to play with on an isolated network.

 

Nothing will get ne away from Avira, nothing. well maybe NOD32, it was just as good, but this ones free!

Avira is "the sex" i will likely be going to back it after my next install.. not that there is anything wrong with Nod32, it just feels alot less configurable.

I had to vote 'other' because I use Linux.

I hate to break it to you, but GNU/Linux is not an antivirus/Internet security package.

'None' wasn't on the list at that stage.
