Hey guys.

I know this is a very open question with no real answer. Im looking for an anti-virus, so i want to know your guys opinion what is the best anti-virus out there. Im done with this freeware stuff i have to do my entire network over and i want to get the best anti virus.

I want to know what you guys are using, or what you will recommend.
I was looking at NOD32 Business Edition and Kaspersky Internet Security. I went through a few reviews:

thats why i decided on Kaspersky. I know all anti virus have their pro's and con's

So just want to hear your thoughts.

I had good experiences till KIS 2010. But KIS2011 was so bad, that I have decided to go the other way from what you have. I will be using Avira free anti-virus and Zone Alarm free firewall once my KIS2011 registration expires in February!

We use Trend Micro at the bank where I work. It does the job, and isn't a resource hog.

^^I think so too... There is an option in Comodo which completely blocks off everything.

But i must say:
Avira/Avast/AVG
Comodo (in Firewall mode) and
SpyBot SD

is one of the best solution you can get for free and no need any paid softwares. You can get into site and download anything and come out unscathed.

KIS 2011 is a resource hog of the highest caliber. I eats up RAM like a kid eats chocolate. Very disappointed with it! :fou:

SpyBot SD is mainly for Adware. Its a great program, many people use it even though they have anti-virus suites installed.
