What Antiviruses do you guys like?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello!

My favourite antivirus is Avira free! It's really good and has an amazing detection rate!

My favourite second opinion scanner is Hitman Pro!

 How about yours?  :)

The built in Windows 10 security stuff is what I use most of the time. I use BItdefender on my main machine because I get it for free from my Dad's work. Other then that I use Malwarebytes when I am cleaning up my Papa's computer from all the viruses he somehow got -_-

Windows defender + adblock + not being retarded. Windows Defender isn't the best, in fact it's the weakest out of the widely used programs iirc. Thing is, I just put it it there recently just in case. I went without antivirus for over 5 years and didn't get a single virus.


If you haven't held a SNES controller before, you don't know gaming.

well okay that's not entirely true but still go play a fucking SNES if you haven't.

xDHe he, that's funny but it really doesn't affect my gaming performance very much because I've set it that it won't do backround scans in that game's folders and I scan the folders manually when not playing.

User experience is different from one person to another, I like it because it is a very solid antivirus that never bothers me with pop ups and other annoyances and doesn't flag my cracks as malwares.

Hell yeah it is. Back around the time I first got started programming games in GML on my shitty old Dell inspiron years ago, it deleted any EXE I compiled and even wiped out most of my project files! NEVER USE NORTON, IT IS A FUCKING VIRUS. Plus, it slows down PCs like crazy. Back in 2009/2010 I had a ECS desknote with 512mb of RAM and a Athlon 1.6ghz. Keep in mind, those specs weren't completely useless yet at that point and I could comfortably browse the web and watch Youtube on it. I installed Norton and the damn thing slowed down so much that I could barely get to the programs list to uninstall it. It was like a horror movie, I'm not kidding. Even on more modern PCs it can cause noticeable performance decreases.

That joke is so old...

I think 2010 was the last really bad version or something... 

Anyway the new ones are really good (except that it removes every fucking torrent...)
