Microsoft security essentials is pretty good. AVG is pretty resource intensive. There really is no Best solution since even the good ones can miss some viruses, if your super paranoid run multiple Antivirus/malware programs.
AVG has always been the worst solution for anyone. Microsoft works, but it's still pretty terrible. The best security software money can buy is NOD 32. Smart Security is the more advanced version of NOD 32. Here is their website and some comparison charts.
I feel like Avast! is a good Anti-virus program, however I do not like the GUI. I also have SuperAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes installed.
Ya me to recommends the AVAST 6. Avast AV have good detection rates, very low CPU/Memory consumption, Overall very good performer than microsoft's security essentials. The only glitch i felt its boring GUI.
Which is better Windows security essentials or avg 2012.'
Ive been using avg but i dont really like it because it keeps telling me that some of my steam games have viruses on it which i dont really think is possible. So i want to switch.
Please let me know which is best
In regards to strictly the two you mentioned in your question.
What your experiencing with AVG is just a false positive. A quick google search should be able to reveal you can safely tell AVG to ignore that file.
As for MSE I have been reading a lot of good things about it online throughout the months. But I have not personally tested it myself yet.
AVG is pretty resource intensive.
What kind of system are you running? Did you have automatic scans turned on? Most modern Anti-virus software mixed with modern system components shouldn't be resource intensive. Especially since a lot of these programs let the user choose how "intensive" you want the scan to be.
Microsoft tool has never detected anything on my XP-PRO SP3. EVEN ran the detailed scans many times trying to remove RBOT.CBR worm Category: DNS Services, conflicker, sasser, runtime.inf and it never works. microfoft probably invented them.
I will try malwarebyte's, thanks everyone for the input!
as for Microsoft® Windows® Malicious Software Removal Tool (KB890830) it does not work period.
