    Anti Virus Preferences

    Hi All,

    I am a frequent downloader and visit numerous sites for the same. One of the pitfalls of the same is the exposure to virus, malware and other malicious software. Recently i was plagued with internet explorer automatically opening browsers. by the en of the day i would find more that 100 open windows. My laptop was running McAfee.
    A few years ago (modem era) i faced somewhat of a similar issue. The modem icon was showing sending and receiving of data but i had no browser open. That time too i had McAfee.
    I reached out to a friend in IT and both occasions he recommended my ESET NOD32. He installed it for me and after the initial scan which cleaned over 100 items (years ago) and around 10 malicious items this time, my problems have been resolved.

    Not sure if anyone else on this form uses it, but i definitely recommend this as a great option.

    With a weak anti-virus system, the system is always prone for a malware attack especially when downloading "pondy" stuffs hehehe

    I have used Avast and it was decent.

    I have been using Kaspersky Internet Security suite on my office systems since a few years now and been happy with system performance compared to some others where the antivirus software slows down the system drastically. It also gives you the option to turn down the level of protection in case it is installed on an old PC where you need more system performance. On my Windows 10 PCs though, I stick with Windows Defender which is as good if not better than the others. Windows Defender used to be average a few years back but now it gets updates almost every other day.
