Best AVP for Windows 7?

Recommended Posts

What would you guys say is the best AVP for Windows 7? The one I've been using has served me well but it would be foolish of me to not consider another program if it's overall better.

A good one: AVG 

The best one: Don't do stupid shit

What are the advantages of AVG over say Kaspersky, Malwarebytes, and Avast?

 

Of course not doing stupid things is the best to avoid viruses, but shit does happen. The real best way to not get a virus is literally never have your computer connected to the internet, ever.

Well, Malwarebytes is antimalware, not an antivirus; the two are distinctly difference. 

 

AVG, Kaspersky, Avast, they're all good choices....pretty much everything but Norton is a fine choice, AVG is just lightweight and is/has been free forever.

I got Norton Security Suite free, as a bundle deal with comcast's Constant Guard (which I ended up uninstalling)

False positives occasionally pop up, but I get little notifications whenever it does anything and it's not hard to ignore those files, and for the most part I'm satisfied.

I wouldn't pay money for it, of course. But if you can get it free like I did, it's totally worth it.

I run Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 and Malwarebytes Pro on home desktop, wife's laptop and my personal laptop.

My work laptop has MS Security Essentials and Malwarebytes free.

I think Malwarebytes free is all you need. Like others have said, don't do anything stupid. Don't install sketchy programs you find on sketchy websites, and if you do, try scanning them in Malwarebytes and run a scan afterwards. I've always done this and I've been pretty safe.

Malwarebytes is just an anti-malware program; its not an antivirus.

Kaspersky has a very low detection rate basically causes slow boot slows your internet down uses ALOT of RAM when scanning

Been using avast for 6 years without troubles. What am I doing wrong?

I'd never ask such a thing on a forum, you'll get thrown every existsing anti-virus at your face, and you'll not get any further.

 

But Malwarebytes is the way to go, together with AVG.
