avg is good … i dont mind it …but I have used nortons 2003 and like it …and also panda antivirus …

i am currently using panda antivirus and it does real well …it has caught all the new virus …

i know other people will say different on this comment

i have a virus … on pc and I scanned with nortons 2003 with latest file definitions and nortons didnt even know it was there. …

i scanned with panda antivirus and it found it right away … so that is why I switch …and i am not only one that had this problem … some of my friends scanned with nortons on there pc nad then scan with panda antivirus and found virus …but i know everyone has preference and i know alot of people that have used nortons 2003 no prob

i do reccommend for corporations or home networking … that is on lan with connection all the time nortons antivirus corporate edition 8 … …it does a great job and no virus has ever went threw it …I have set that up many places of business …just nortons 2003 didnt pass my test …

cheers

p.s. i stopped using avg cause i wanted something more reliable …and definitions came out quicker …and panda they come out real quick … also avg last time i use it doesnt scan email that well or any messenger service …

downloaded panda antivirus & updated it.

it shows 2 infected files on my system.

Suspicious file :

c:\windows\system\divxdec.ax
c:\windows\system\divx.dll

while avg doesnt show any infected files :rolleyes:

is my system infected ???

or is divx program a spyware ??

:Z :Z :Z :Z

well panda does not detect spyware …what does it say it is infected with …i trust panda …


#5

i would say your infected cause panda dont lie …


#6

it may flag it as suspicious for being in the system directory. i’d investigate further before i drew any conclusions.

im not sure if it was norton, but some antivirus company updates definitions for its highest priced products first, and lets them trickle down over time.
