Lately Iíve gotten a few viruses, even though I had Norton anti-virus on my system and Eset Ė both were installed on my system at work.


I am looking at a paid anti-virus program because the free ones arenít working for me. Some forums I looked at talk a lot about PC Tools. A friend also recomended Cyberdefender.


I liked that Cyberdefender seems to be a more complete package, covering anti-virus, trojans, spyware, id theft protection. PC Tools, also had a nice user interface.


PC Tools doesnít seem as good to me, but lots of people seemed to like it.


I checked CNET for reviews, and they rated AVG very high, but my experience was not so good so I donít know how much to trust them...


PC-Tools review is here (Editor 4 stars -only 3 stars from users):

Cyberdefender is here (got 4 stars from users):


http://www.download.com/CyberDefender-AntiSpyware/3000-8022_4-10811874.html?tag=mncol


I am leaning toward Cyberdefender which is cheaper for the paid version.


I have heard of PC Tools all the time, and Cyberdefender is not mentioned much but seems better program.


Which should I get?

I think that these days Avast is one of the best

Kaspersky is great, plus I think you can install it on three computers Very Happy

Or just use Linux Very Happy

Linux. That is a good idea. It will also keep casual snoops out of your system. Smile

I wonder how long the Mac will be talking smack about Windows virus issues, as soon as they get a bit more market share I am sure they will be a big enough target and have their own issues.

You can try Linux using a live CD (you don't even need a hard drive) Very Happy

Just download an .iso of a live CD distro. like Ubuntu or whatever.
Then burn it and boot from that dics.

I will be putting together a CNC machine in my spare time over the next few weeks. From what I read I think I will probably stick to a Windows version but there is also a popular Linux version that can be launched form a live CD so I will have to give that a try also.

I like Cyberdefender - it's really a great program, not to mention the 24/7 help support, which is really great, I mean, I don't have to worry if I have any computer problems, I just call them - It's awesome.
