I read somewhere that it's a really stripped down version of Kaspersky's antivirus.

Yet another possibility is the AOL Anti Virus Shield.  This is a cut down version of the top rated Kaspersky AV and is being made available for free to all uses not just AOL members. On first sight it seems like an unbeatable deal but it's not quite what it seems. This really is a "lite" version. It  lacks the important html and heuristics modules present in the full Kaspersky product so the protection afforded against hostile web sites is actually inferior to AVG and Avast!.  Gone, too, is the ability to create rescue disks and to fully manage the quarantine area. The configuration options are also more limited and the EULA worries some users. That said, AOL Anti Virus Shield still offers more powerful malware detection than AVG and Avast!  It does however need to be augmented by other products to improve protection again hostile sites and zero-day threats.


Still using AVG free.  I also tried Antivir since it came out on top in antivirus reviews but found it slowed down my system a lot.

AFAIK it's not free. They have a local website here where you can order and pay in pesos.

I'm using AVG Free.  I've used the trial version of Kaspersky and NOD32 but Kaspersky is overly sensitive to the GameGuard of Pangya and shuts the game.  NOD32 is also good.
It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.

If you can't afford the paid ones, use the free ones. Using those "cr@cked" versions is counterproductive as you don't know what else they removed or added.

shareware: nod32
freeware: avast home edition

overall: nod32 by a thread


avast home edition is the only known antivirus that scans even before you log in to your windows,something other antivirus apps,not even sharewares have the capability of..

avast home edition + comodo firewall = great security for no price at all

nod32 wins by a thread overall for great layers of protection but not sacrificing the cpu's performance..you can play your favorite games smoothly with it scanning in indepth mode..

antivir?nah,forget it..i saw its horror from a watcher's point of view and from a user's point of view..antivir has good detection rates yes..but does what it detect really is a virus or a threat to your pc?..antivir has great detection rate,probably the best out of all the antivirus apps..but antivir also posts the most number of false positives (look it up if you don't know what a false positive means)..antivir detected "mirc" as a threat in my pc and suggested it to be deleted..talk about accurate detection,haha..

active virus shield,the said to be free version of kaspersky of some sort,is an average performer..nothing special about it..but beware,it is from AOL..be aware of AOL's history..

i just switched from AVG to Avast so I can see if there's any difference. having a thorough scan right now, and it already caught something the slipped by AVG.
