Once again, any suggestions or comments about *"the current, best"* antivirus and security software?
About this time of year my family members impose on me to tune up and refresh their computers. Usually that involves getting common Windows & software updates, especially browsers. Sometimes it means disinfecting the machines & removing dumb browser toolbars. As a minimum I try to make sure the antivirus is the current "best".
I hate to ask a question that gets revisited periodically, but computer security is a moving target. Over the years I've moved away from Symantec and Trend Micro, because they've been too intrusive. In the past we also used AVG, Avira and Avast, but the last couple years I've been pleased with Sunbelt's Vipre.
This summer, GFI bought them out and they no longer participate in head-to-head tests like those at http://www.av-comparatives.org. I'm looking for the best current AV software at a great price for 8 machines. Any suggestions or comments appreciated.
I am still leaning toward Vipre or Avira at this point.
I looked at earlier threads. (continued below)
