    Can you check this please.

    Hi All,
    Can anyone please pop over to Paramore | Paramore New Single 'Ain't It Fun' Available Now | Official and check weather your Anti Virus freaks out. Avast just said that their was an infection on that website. Although as it is the official website of the band I am surprised.

    Thanks
    Harry

    Sophos Endpoint doesn't seem to mind it.

    Looks like Avast is being stupid.

    What it does not know is that it's license expires soon and I will not be re purchasing it.

    Or maybe it does and has chosen not to go quietly!

    And what will you be replacing Avast! with? I've found it to be better than most, especially Sophos which caused us so much grief back in 2012.

    I have three options:
    1) McAfee - via my HSBC internet Banking
    2) Kaspersky via my Barclays Internet Banking
    3) F-Secure Safe via Virgin Media.

    Which one do you think I should use?

    1) McAfee - Not a chance. Horrible.
    2) Kaspersky - Maybe. It was a decent AV solution the last time I used it. However, I haven't personally used their enterprise deployment and management console to give feedback on that part of it.
    3) F-Secure - Good rep, but zero experience with it, so can't say.

    What's making you ditch Avast, BTW?

    They are all free for me. Avast is not.

    The Which? magazine report this week ranks F-secure as a Best Buy

    The others are ranked Kaspersky, McAfee, Avast in that order... but none of them is rated particularly well.

    Well, that saves me googling F-secure. My dad has gone and bought it through Virgin media and I hadn't heard of it!
