on the home network I have tried many free packages, Ani Vir is pretty good for free, but in my experience not as good as Mcafee.

Out of the free stuff however Anti Vir and Avast would be my choice...I run Anti Vir on our 3rd machine

We have had some pretty horrible stuff put our way, mcafee has stopped the lot AVG, Anti Vir are ok, but not as quick off the ball as mcafee.

I have tested it, by removing a disk checked by the latest Anti Vir, AVG, and cleared as clean, then checking it with Mcafee, Mcafee picked up worms trojans left behind....

This has happened on a few occasions

My daughters a great test case she gets all the latest and greatest :roll:

Mind you, virus protection is only good if you update it regularly and run a system check regularly

McAfee will treat some keygens as malware too (to them it is in their own right), things that AVG will leave alone. How do I know? Well, errr....

Greetings,

I've been trying various AV solutions and can't claim to have used them all, but NOD32 is a powerful, swift solution.

A new BETA available for free download at:

NOD32 Home

...offers a glimpse of the new product with anti-spyware and other new features.

NOD32 is an excellent and flexible program.

The downside is that configuration is more complex than most. You can try their support forums at Wilders Security for more information on configuration.

For home networks, NOD32 offers "Family Pack" licensing at reasonable rates. You can even go "Enterprise" and be able to monitor, scan, configure and install the AV software on your network from a single Console.
