Cons

None noted so far.

"Lets compare"

December 09, 2005  |  By burning_soul56

 |  Version: AntiVir Personal Edition 6.27

Pros

Lets take AVG(free), Norton(expensive), and Antivir(Free, open source). AVG is buggy, hard to update, and lets viruses slip by. Sometimes, it tells you there is a virus, but provides no solution to the problem. It is a very in effecient antivirus, as it takes forever to do a scan of your hard drive.

Norton is a great antivirus program, however, it is a very costly application to buy, and if you do not have the cash, you need to find a free app, that works just as good. It scans for all types of viruses, as well as even spy and ad-ware, trojans, and other harmful things. However, it uses a ton of RAM, slowing your system down, plus, the subscription only lasts for so long, before you have to renew it, with more money out of your pocket.

Antivir Personal. What can I say. This is the beauty of open source programming. This program is no frills, easy to use, and does the job. If you have Antivir, you do not need anything else. Even if you have the money to buy Norton, save your money to buy a nice dinner instead. Just download yourself a free copy of Antivir Personal, and have the assurance that your system will be safe from trojans and viruses.

Cons

5 stars means no cons.

"Works fine with Win98SE"

November 29, 2005  |  By 123ght456

 |  Version: AntiVir Personal Edition 6.27

Pros

I've used free Antivir for more than a year on a slow PII 300mhz machine, and it has detected viruses very well. It doesn't eat your system resources. Considering that this is free to use for personal use, this is a great program. Some users complain about the interface looks, I don't mind about that.

Cons

The updates are a bit confusing sometimes, but you just download the whole thing again and then it works fine again.
