Re: What is the best anti virus software to get?

Well talk bout a bargain.. I just bought NIS 2011 with Norton Utilities included for 37.75 (def cheaper than renewal - I got 35 days left)

Re: What is the best anti virus software to get?

Why don't you use MSE? Because it's MS?

Maybe because it kills disk performance and it has mediocre protection?
Just a guess

Re: What is the best anti virus software to get?

Nope no ghost just utilities.. it's called Performance pack
Bill you talking bout MSE?
Jim actually.. I think these days a suite might be better protection than just an AV.. as time goes by so does technology.. even the bad effects and those can go beyond just viruses

Re: What is the best anti virus software to get?

I am on FF too. It enables the scanning of downloads, I like it. Much, much better!

I open attachments from known senders/sites. I use Outlook, so it does a good job in that regard.

Right now I am using MSE (formerly Defender), I see no issues. It's free - I need to save monies due to all the mobos I muck with.

I see on the ASUS forums there is still problems with sleep - you would think by now they would get it straight!!!

Re: What is the best anti virus software to get?

I didn't concentrate on that issue as I don't allow the sleep option. When I'm done with the pc I shutdown. With the SSD drive windows boots up in 6 seconds after BIOS post that is.

Re: What is the best anti virus software to get?

It's a matter of sampling for me. If that feature was not thoroughly tested - what else did they miss. I do think the whole issue is moot like you say. I also think it is related to the CPU and the CPU's micro coding for Z68. IMHO.
