Thread: Antivirus Recommendations

  1. Antivirus Recommendations

    I just got a new Windows 8.1 laptop and the free trial of McAfee is ending in the next day or so. Any recommendations for a decent free or cheap antivirus program? I don't normally go trolling about the deeper, darker parts of the web so I wouldn't call my browsing habits high-risk or anything.

    Thanks.

  2. I'd read enough articles on antivirus software that I removed what I had (avast) altogether and haven't looked back since.
    I run Super Anti Spyware weekly and Malwarebytes monthly. I let Windows defender do its deal overnight.
    It's been six months and the only consequence has been that my laptop runs faster.

  3. Hmm! Something to think on. Thanks.

    I use Avast, and it actually helped me recently. Like a dumbass, I installed Java so I could chat with TNLers during E3. Sure enough, it got infected. Avast had it cleaned up with minimal effort, though it did take a long time for the full scan.

  6. If you're a Comcast customer, you should be able to get a free Norton Security Suite license. Norton used to be bloated years ago, but it runs fast for me and is very reliable and hassle-free.

    If you aren't with Comcast, maybe your ISP provides a similar option. It's worth checking into.

  7. Thanks guys. All great suggestions.

    I'm glad you mentioned that, Nick. Time Warner has the same deal, but I had neglected to reinstall it after some rebuild some time.
