Best Antivirus Software of 2007

Its time to review the best AntiVirus Software of 2007. This has been a question that has been asked a hundred times on so many forums I read. Thought I would give my 2 cents to this subject here.

Before we start let me tell you that there is no “Best”AntiVirus, it depends on your personal needs.

The good: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6 offers superior antivirus protection; has free and paid versions; supports Windows 98 through Windows XP.
The bad:
Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6 rescue-disc process is a bit complicated.

The good: BitDefender Antivirus 10 offers two licenses and a two-year subscription at a price below that of the competition (almost half the price); runs on Windows 98, Me, 2000 & XP; features award-winning antivirus protection.
The bad: BitDefender Antivirus 10 performed slower than the competition; doesn’t uninstall completely; the help file is a separate application to open.

The good: Norton AntiVirus 2007 is faster and lighter on system resources than previous versions; includes firewall-like protection, top-notch antispyware protection, and enterprise-level antirootkit technology.
The bad: Norton AntiVirus 2007 lacks antiphishing protection; it proved to me a system hog, slowing my computer noticaebly; the technical support documentation could be more thorough.

The good: McAfee VirusScan Plus includes system performance tools; antispyware protection; and a personal firewall.
The bad: McAfee VirusScan Plus consumes more system resources than Norton, and lacks a consistent and thorough technical support offering.

The good: NOD32 consistently wins independent awards for detecting and removing viruses; the program is one of the fastest and lightest we’ve seen.
The bad: NOD32’s interface is utilitarian; unless you want to spend time to learn to use it, you might not want it!

Conclusion : Its a choice between Kapersky for the best detection features or BitDefender for best value for money. Ultimately its a choice that has to be made by you.

If you are wondering what I use, its Zone Alarm Internet Security Suite 7, it includes Kaspersky Antivirus.

    I personally believe that Norton Antivirus is a very poor program, it really makes my PC lag and is not user friendly.

    I stick to my view that Norton 2007 really slows your PC too much. Read any decent review and it will say the same.

    Anyways I did try out the trial of Norton Internet security 2008.The 2008 version is much better and dosn’t slow down the system much.

    yeah for sure there is no the best antivirus up to this time.but for me i think Norton 360 is much better for protecting Pc even though its makes system slow down

  • Unfortunately, I haven’t had the opportunity to use Norton 360 but I’ve heard that its good all round protection.

    A genius at work the writer indeed is, I do not know when he convinced me. It’s great how the advertisements are associated and unobtrusive to the articles. Associated clickable links can be found within each article. I love the background colors, everyone can read all easily. I like the positivity I find on this blog. I like the method the author convinces you one step at a time. I personally do not believe any might have written it greater than this buddy. I recommend this to everyone who wishes to dwell into this topic. I thank the makers for how the blog provides a platform for people to discuss even the most controversial articles in uncontroversial manner. It’s nice to see how the photos are always the right size. At once you read a post you cannot wait to see another one for the ideas provided. The best thing about this blog is the clarity and refinement of prose in articles. The research sources available in the blog articles are an ease for the readers. What you see there today is what you see from everyone in the coming days.

    I think that Quick Heal Total Security 2009 is best for me. It gives total protection to my PC. It has many features like Antimalware, Mobile Scanning and much more. So I suggest everybody to ues Quick Heal Total Security 2009.
