I forgot to mention one point: Panda Cloud AV is very light on resources. Just 30-40 mb while scanning and some 10-20 mb at idle!!! I have even seen its 2 processes consuming less than 10 mb at times. So on older systems it might just be the perfect companion.

Tenida, stick with what you have found suitable for you. There's nothing like best and worst antivirus or security suite. And none of them are foolproof. If Norton works for you, just stick with it.

Bro Skud is just giving you a advice and that too nice one. Why are you being offensive. Yeah I know that its best for you but its not good for everyone its just that simple. Everyone has his own personal choice and there is nothing wrong with that. Just be cool.

And i have valid reason to liking NIS 2011 over KIS 2011.So in my own view its quite good.

Used only the firewall. For me the best firewall out there. Never failed in ShieldsUp or any other tests. But Comodo always fails in ShieldsUp even after manually configuring it. No such hassles with Outpost ever. Actually this was the very first firewall I have used way back in 2002 when it was known as Agnitum Outpost Forewall. It was much leaner and speedier then. Slowly slowly it started putting on junk like the antispyware which is of no use.

^^Actually in everyday usage I have never seen it to be very effective. I am using Outpost since 2002 and tracked their progress fairly well. It might be better than comodo etc. but not up to the mark IMO.

AntiVirus Name | McAfee® VirusScan® Enterprise Free or Paid |Paid
Price in INR |No idea. Its the AV used by our office.
Protection Type |Realtime, antispyware module included.
User Friendly |3
Detection Rate |3
Price |NA
Overall |3
Recommend to Use | No

Comments:- Tested this since version 8.5. The latest 8.8 seems to improve somewhat, but the previous 8.7i was a hell to use. The realtime engine is amongst the weakest I have seen. Never really bothered to catch the autorun viruses in pendrives. Detection rate is fairly low even compared to the free AV. :shock: All in all, avoid it at any cost.

TBH Comodo has best Firewall their Security suite isn't that good. I only use Comodo Firewall and I can tell that its one of the best.

Comodo Firewall is pretty good although I have found Outpost to be better. Only problem I have found is that even after tweaking Defense+ just keep on asking too much question.
