    I use Bitdefender Free Edition here nowadays after ditching avast a while back. Kaspersky we use in work having just upgraded to v10 and I have used it before on my home machine and its very decent.

    Avoid Norton/Mcafee or Symantec are the main rules I have when it comes to AV, ive been paid enough times to remove that junk from peoples computers, especially when they just bought a new PC from PCWorld/Tesco.

    To be fair, VIPRE freaks out on the Aviva quote page warning about trojans so it is probably just poor website design.

    I used to use F-Secure and it was OK. I wouldn't say it was a patch on ESET or Sophos, but it was OK.

    I use MS Essentials at home now but i'm a very careful browser! My parents and my Wife use the 3 PC licence of ESET as they are a lot more click happy than I am!

    Site is working fine for me but i'm using Mcafee.

    You will find that AV is like cars and broadband, you will have those who have had good experience with some and bad experience with others. Always comes down to personal preference, in my experience I have had no issues from Kaspersky, Mcafee, Sophos and some other free ones like Essentials. Yet I seem to be the one of few casualties of Avast, which some people seem to really like.

    It's the pirate voice option that swings it for me. [I use the free version, along with Spybot.]

    Was a false alarm in the first place
    Dear Customer,

    Thank you for your e-mail and for using avast! as your antivirus solution.

    It was false positive detection.
    Our virus specialists have been working on the problem and it has been disabled since VPS 20140222-1.

    Best Regards,


    Miroslav Jenšík
    Technical Support Engineer
    AVAST Software a.s.

    Looks like I will be using F-Safe!
