I used to use Norton because it was heavily advertised;however I hardly ever got a virus anyways. If all anti-virus's fails. Reformat your computer. O_O I'm going to read your original post later.

So yeah. I have a trojan virus on my computer that's probably stealing all my personal information as we speak. I ran my Norton Antivirus and it didn't even show up, yet the threat warning keeps popping up every couple of minutes. I'm going to try it again tonight but I don't have much faith in it working. Can anybody recommend me some reliable antivirus software? It doesn't have to be free but I'm not exactly rich.

Preferably something that doesn't involve me paying again and again every couple of months.

Thanks


yeah i had the norton anti virus for like 2 months if that and it caught some but it kept telling me i had virus's so i downloaded the avg one and that found like an extra 200 virus' and items at risk and what not and fixed em up for me but norton was absolutely useless so i removed it from my computer and just use avg now and i haven't had a problem since

Norton- its easy to use! The only thing i hate is how much it slows down my laptop- i actually have to wait for it to open a program now! i suppose its worth it though ^-^

I have F-secure, free 1month trial basis. Seems simple enough, havent had it that long but so far im happy with it. Like it more than Norton.

Norton is the most system hungry AV program out there and its not even the best as it's slow in updating to the latest viruses/trojans. I've got the option to have the full program for free from my ISP but choose to use AVG 7.5 instead as it's far better.

Kaspersky is also good but only if you are willing to pay for it.

if you must, then i say AVG.

i firmly believe information and the right to use it should be free, so programs that help combat things like viruses that hinder your ability to utilize information should be free too.

you could stop using Windows altogether [you could count on one hand the number of 'major' linux viruses within the last coupla decades. of those, all of them were defeated by the linux community within a few hours of being known. to translate, linux=no viruses].
