- #51261Hi MAthew,
Good to know and Need to know, is there are many free AV available on net, but I prefer and prefer that you should purchase an AV, instead of using free accessories, this is because these software are always introductional and do not remove and malware, phishing and provide not support.
In India commonly used software are
NPAV and others.
I am using NPAV, one of the most commonly used and cheaper. It is Total Internet Security software
India Study Channel
If you are working on P3 System, then you can install Norton internet security 2010 on it. But you must have Microsoft Windows XP installed on it.
Norton Internet Security 2010 is the lightest antivirus for all system. Even the full Norton Internet Security can be installed in just two min. on P3 system.
Its has SONAR Technology that check and remove the virus with full online support. This will also increase the performance of your system.
If you want to install an free anti-virus then go for AVAST or AVG. Both are free and can do some work but they are heavy and can slow you PC and can not remove virus completely like Norton Internet Security 2010.
Also Norton internet security 2010 is available online for 90 days trial period. You can use 90 days trial and then you can buy it for 1 year. In the meantime Norton Internet Security 2011 will be available in the market. Then you can buy NIS 2011.
With best regards

- #56549If you have a P3 system with windows XP(atleast sp2), then you can install most of the antivirus softwares. Among these Avira and Avast will be the best choice for your system.
Avira has a good detection capability and keeps your system clean. If you think your system is already affected by virus then use Avira.
With antivirus use Threatfire in parallel to give your system 100% protection. Threatfire uses behaviour based detection and will not allow malware or other threats to reside on your system. It will work in parallel with another antivirus software.
