    Sophos anti-virus as used by the British Government

    It's effective but stays out of the way and doesn't screw up your machine like 99% of others

    slarty is right sophos is the best and pretty much the defacto av on the internet. i tryed to convince the mis director on this fact but we wound up getting norton for gateways and on each desktop, which im very sastisfied with.

    My vote goes to avg.


    1. It's free
    2. good on memory
    3. has all the features that a good av program should have
    4. Never conflicted with other programs unlike mcafee
    5. It's free
    Its not software piracy. I’m just making multiple off site backups.

    I use a Combo of Panda & McAfee at work. I used to be a hard core McAfee User, and after the issues I have been having with their firewall & virus scan software I switched to Norton AntiVirus and the free version of OutPost. So out of the three I mentioned. I would suggest:

    1. Panda
    2. Norton
    3. McAfee

    I have some experience with InoculateIT, but I don't know where I would place that. Maybe a tie for third. These are just my opinions based on my expierence. Hope it helps.

    I like F-Prot the best....

    out of all the antivirus programs I have tryed, but mind you I have only tryed Norton, Panda and F-Prot

    Im going to try some of the antivuse programs you ppl sugested.

    If someone is interested in trying F-Prot the DOS version is free for personal use at

    I have used Norton Anti-Virus for about ten years, and has served me very well. I have also used Innocolate it, McAffee, and Panda, and I still like NAV best. Some will argue it's a memory hog, and takes over everything, but it works for me.

    I have Norton, its alright, but quite annoting. For one Trojan, itll warn you too many times. Slow to startup, but definetely beats McAfee anyday.

    i used to use InoculateIt but they sold out to eTrust. But they have been really good. It never let a virus through yet.
