Well recently i seemd quite happy as i got Bitdefender v10! apparently the BEST antivirus programme available, according to this:http://anti-virus-software-review.toptenreviews.com/
But only yesterday did my computer get infected quite heavily with trojans and malware, more info on that here:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/94280/hijackthis-log-please-help-diagnose/
As you can see good old Richie managed to help me cleanse my system which i appreciate very greatly. Anyways this whole dilemma has made me question my antivirus, is it really that good if my system got infected with no less than 6 trojans? how could this fantastic firewall + antivirus (apparently) let that happen?
I've been doing a lot of research since my subscription with Bitdefender is coming to an end, ive seen a lot of admins on this site recommend you run a scan with AVG, therefore im guessing AVG is better than Bitdefender? and in other posts i have heard Avast tops AVG, so maybe Avast is best?.
I am no stranger to security suites, altogether i have had:
- Norton Internet Security 2006
- Zone Alarm Security Suite
- AVG [free + upgraded edition]
I disliked Norton as it slowed my pc down greatly and ive heard strange rumours that they create their own viruses to make their product look better??
I thought Zone Alarm was pretty good, the firewall is apparently among the best? but its antivirus doesn't have a repation like its firewall unfortunately so i thought i had better change.
NOD32, it was ok i guess, but the interface wasn't straight forward - poor reasoing of course but hey i like it nice and simple
AVG, both editions, i thought were very good but it lacked a firewall and i don't really want to stand alone applications for a firewall and antivirus i would much rather control both from one window, other than that i thought it was good.
BitDefender, i brought it because of that internet site's rating and i have heard it is a good quality antivirus but as i said my recent attack as left me speechless and my confidence in my product has fallen sharply and seeking advice..
So that brings me back to my post, what would you
