Al,

Hows the performance? Any system slowdowns? I used to use Avast 3 years ago and it kinda slowed down my systems.

NOD32 and Panda :)

there is one antivirus that AOL offers for free powered by McAfee. i tried it and it works fine, its not heavy to your computer like McAfee is or any big antivirus programs... the problem is that you cannot combo it with other antivirus shields, i think kaspersky will do but for my NOD32 it did not.   

so far NOD32 is working fine and its easy to use, as well as Panda.

I'm not sure about actual memory usage, but there are no noticeable slowdowns on my overclocked Athlon64 3000+ with 1GB RAM, as long as the memory resident protection is set to normal. Setting it to high is a different story, though.

Zone Alarm Internet Security Suite.. Pagkakaalam ko, ang anti-virus engine nila is kaspersky as well. okay ang kasperksy, it's quite good. sometimes lang nag kaka speed issues ako... including internet but..

it's an old pc... and medyo aggressive din ang firewall. lalong lalo na when i was still using KIS.. grabe sa pagka aggressive... wooo  :wacko:

AVG user here years back. Its free and does what I need.  I have been using it with AVG AntiSpyWare and Spyware Blaster.  I never had a single problem even with my home pc which is only used my father-in-law for limewire.  Before I left, he has been using it for over a year and I will just sit down for checking and upgrading the virus def.

Has anyone used/tested the antivirus and malware by comodo? are they good?

Before I forgot, I am using those products because they served their purpose on me (and nothing beats safe computing...prevention is still better than disinfection)and the best things in life are free.

guys, I'm using AVG and Bitdefender. Is it worth replacing them with NOD32?
