What virus scanner do you use in connection with PA?



  • What virus scanner do you use in connection with PA?

    Currently I use AVG



  • try avast its the best one on the market and i s free


  • Alpha Testers

    I use Nod32 latest version…
    it’s rated THE best out there…
    but each to his/her own I reckon…
    works superb for me.

  • Kaspersky Internet Security

    I use it and strongly recommend to everyone. It is the most powerful security solution.



  • @klumy:

    As nobody else has asked -

    Do you mean under “Options / Configuration / Virus Scanner” ?
    This may be interesting/informative in case of system problems/crashes - if so, my answer is “none” / “Blank”

    If you are simply asking which Anti Virus program I use, then “antiVir Guard for Windows XP” and “TrendMicro”… 2 pc’s. But then I don’t understand why/what you are asking??

    @moles42:

    but each to his/her own I reckon…

    Exactly.



  • I have McAfee set up to scan from within PA.



  • I use AVG on one computer and EZ-Anti-virus on the other.



  • this program works well wityh powerarchiver and does not cause it problems like some i’vew heard of and it gives you a free version avast



  • Eset Nod32



  • I’ve started using Windows LIVE on a couple of my computers.



  • Zonealarm (which uses Kaspersky’s engine) last time I checked. And also Avast! Profesional.

    Both insync on my Powerfull systems. Where ZoneAlarm on my Laptops and low end systems.

    Lost faith in McAfee and Norton, as well as panda who all let virus on my system.



  • I use ClamWin Free Antivirus it’s a Open Source Antivirus for Windows…:D



  • I use McAfee it’s good



  • The latest version of ESET will bring PA to a crawl when extracting large archives. I’ve addressed the problem with the developers but they seem inept in fixing it. Currently using Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 beta. It’s a vast improvement compared to v7.

    we use f-prot in the office… good and fast, you dont notice it running at all…

    I use ESET NOD32 and quite frequently archive and unarchive large files ranging from 1gb to 8gb, and I haven’t noticed any problems with the speed on my machine.

    perhaps the slow down you notice is due to the effectiveness of NOD32 at stopping potential threats to your system. ESET is #1 for a reason
    better safe than sorry!

  • Usher,
    These diagrams are linked to eset website. You can find similar on many other av vendors websites and they will show different results.

    I use ESET NOD32 and quite frequently archive and unarchive large files ranging from 1gb to 8gb, and I haven’t noticed any problems with the speed on my machine.

    It is because nod32 doesn’t scan files in large compressed files.

    i will just warn everyone that all of these tests can be easily manipulated… I can just say that I am better protected with fprot, which scored around 93% in those tests than with few other major AV’s that have let viruses on my computer…

    Nothing gives 100% protection… except…
    you can ensure absolute computer protection if you disconnect it from all networks and prohibit using removable media.
