I was hoping someone could recommend something other than McAfee. I use McAfee's Active Virus Defence suite at work and find it to be ok but not brilliant. It crashes alot on some of the older machines and causes laptops to just stop responding.
We've got a broad range of PC's, from low spec to high.
Norton 2002 has been given the thumbs up by quite few sites, but again it uses up alot of resources. I think it was something like 50mb install.
Anyone know anything about Trend Micro's products or Sophos?
I use NAV 2002 and so far it has caught everything that has come its way.
Some people say it's bloated software.
I have always believed that a one line program could never do what a fifty line program can do....
they use it at a clients site that i go to can not say to much for it. so far it let quite a few virus though. the only cool part is you can run the installs from the server to 9x and 2000 pro dose not work with XP or atlest the verson they are running. you can also tell it from the server to run a local scan for all the systems the net time there trund on.
I also prefer McAfee, the latest release is stable and simple, not to large and good on the reasources. I have it running on laptops with 95Final through NT 4.0 SP6 and on Win2000AS, it does not cause any of the systems to fail and is good at catching the bad things sent it way, Hoever every virus software can do that what you have to look at is
1. Resource Use
4. Overall speed
not in any order but all in all thats about it, every AV software will fin viruses but at what price is the real question.
