This weekend I'm building my first PC. That means that I need an antivirus (obviously). I am not against paying for antivirus/protection software (within reason, under $75 or so) if it's good.
I'm looking for something that works well, minimal footprint (although I'll wait a little longer for something to load if it means I don't end up with a virus).
Free is great and all, but I really don't mind paying if there's something out there. Right now I'm leaning towards Norton Security Suite (I think that's what it's called, the antivirus+ software) because of the favorable reviews. What do you all think?
Free would be Comodo and Avast, one and two in that order.
I do like the feature in Avast that lets you do a boot-scan before Windows loads.
Not saying that Comodo doesn't do that, I just don't know.
I have used the Avast before and would have went with Avast again,
but after trying this Comodo Internet Security with it's networking features leaves me feeling secure about my rig.
