    Hi Guys!

    Which is the best AV among the following...

    1. Nod32
    2. F-Secure
    3. Avast
    4. BitDefender

    Security is the most important concern. So please recommend keeping that in mind.

    Chao.

    from your option, NOD32.

    but my suggestion, same as @gaurav_indian ->, Kaspersky Internet Security.

    its also light on resources.

    No doubt Kaspersky Antivirus is the best. Use it with Agnitum Outpost for stealth security :)

    If security is the top priority you have failed to mention NAV 2007 which offers top notch protection and is lighter than the previous versions. Check out PC World or PC Mag for the review.

    I don't vote for Security suites. It is better to have different antivirus and firewalls. The reason is that the tight coupling of the antivirus and Firewall in Security suites allow the entire security to be crippled if one flaw is found in the system. Otherwise, if the security of antivirus is compromised then firewall will still be active and vice versa.

    i have ZoneAlarm Pro FireWall & Kaspersky Internet Security 6.

    about firewall, during Kaspersky installation, it gives us the option of not installing its some components, like firewall/anti spyware..., i did not select its firewall. (KIS firewall is not installed).

    so if we have our hands on a good/better Firewall, then we have the option of installing it too.

    one bright side of Security suite is, less memory consumption, (& only one process).
    before KIS i had AVG free, Windows Defender, ZA firewall Pro, & the resource consumption was around 30MB total (avg= least, defender=max) & now i have only ZA+KIS, & same resource consumption. (30-40mb)
