  1. its a matter of personal choice. i use Microsoft Security Essentials because it is lightweight, unobtruisive and FREE!

    Check this guide out:
    http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/7754-63-guide-preventing-viruses-spyware
  2. Avast, Avira, and Microsoft Security Essentials seem to be the most popular here at THF. Personally, I use and recommend Panda Cloud Antivirus. (For ongoing protection, that is. Malware removal, once you're already infected, is another story...)
  3. I second Microsoft Security Essentials. Works for me and free.
  4. +1 for Microsoft Security Essentials. Only complaint I have is that the name takes too long to type....
  5. I'm liking MSE used with Malwarebytes for back-up.
  6. Hi sitham - It seems to be a personal preference, but it Microsoft Security Essentials is a great place to start. It is always free, so there is no risk to trying it out! http://www.microsoft.com/Security_Essentials/

    @ Herr_Koos - Ha ha, You can always type MSE!

    I would, only then OP wouldn't know what I'm talking about. Invent a shorter name, please! :D
  8. Microsoft Security Essentials is great. Just make sure it doesn't run on startup

    Microsoft Security Essentials is the best right now.
    Its better then avast, avg, eset, norton and so on.
    Its free and its best :D
  12. Honestly, I don't use any. I don't get viruses until someone else starts using my computer. The internet, like many other things, just requires good judgement. If you aren't downloading torrents, shady programs, or other *stuff*, you should be fine without.
  13. ^not a good idea

    you can get viruses just by visiting a website

    Though safe commuting is always a good idea, no one is completely safe of viruses. As jefe323 said, you can pick up a virus by simply visiting a website (even if you think it's safe). Why not just download Microsoft Security Essential for free (it's 100% free) to make your computer more secure?
