  • Anti-Virus: what do you use?

    2012 - 12.08

    We’ve got a couple of subscriptions of various anti-virus products which are expiring and I thought rather than simply renew what we have, I’d consider switching to something else.  So I’m curious what people are using now, and whether they are happy with it (and would recommend it).  Our requirements are pretty straightforward:

    • anti-virus that works and which doesn’t make your computer unusable due to the amount of processing the AV does
    • we’ve got at least 2 desktops (Win XP, Win 7), 1 laptop (Win 7) which I’d probably install the same software on
    • additionally we have a desktop (Win ME), and an iPhone which could potentially make use of an appropriate product as well
    • anti-virus is the only feature which is critical, but most of them these days include additional features so we’re not adverse to having those too, although none of them have leapt out at us as being necessary
    • cost is not a significant concern, but it would be nice to get reasonable value

    Opinions?

      My win7 machine runs the Microsoft SW which is free and got really good reviews on Windows Secrets. You can check their archives for the comparisons. Not sure if it runs on XP and can`t remember what I`m running there.. probably Norton.
