McCafee Total Protection or
I already have both of them. I'm just wondering which one is better between those 2.
I tried AVG...didn't work
I'm on Vista by the way.
Interesting... That's all I ever used on Vista and it worked fine... Sad day, eh?
Avast! or AVG (as suggested above, it should work)?
And please search the forums. This question has been asked and answered a few times, unless you just want to narrow it down to your two choices, of course...
Well, yes I do want the option from those 2 options.
Spyware Doctor is an anti-spyware only, and cannot be compared directly to McAfee Total Protection.
To get an actual comparison, you should chose Spyware Doctor with Antivirus or PC Tools Internet Security. I recommend PC Tools Internet Security, runs great and it's excellent at cleaning computers.
I'd recommend Kaspersky or Nod 32. Those 2 probably are the best anti virus programs on the net!
So you're saying that the McAfee Total Protection is better than just Spyware Doctor?
These are all horrible (save for Avast and NOD32).
Avira. It's super low impact (won't take up any resources) and is very solid. And free. Please, whatever you do, don't get AVG.
How about Comodo Internet Security, it's free.
Aren't there enough antivirus threads?
He put up two options. So far no one has answered his original question.
"Neither" is a very valid option when you're talking about bad software that wastes your money to boot.
Yes, better than Spyware Doctor without Antivirus.
a guy in a pc store once told me you can't have two anti virus programs running or you will get problems with your computer. is this true or did he mean two firewalls or something like that?
Two virus apps or two firewall apps will cause problems. Just have one running. If the virus app contains a firewall disable the Windows built-in firewall.
Don't know about you folks but I use AVG, windows defender, and spybot. All free. Haven't been burned yet.
AVG works really really good on vista but that's only if you pay for it, and it works really good on XP as well...
Quick quesiton does it work on mac?
Quick answer No, and anyway why would you want a AV installed on your Mac ?
I used to use AVG when I had a PC for about 6 years.
Great free antivirus - it protected me from several viruses/trojans I downloaded.
Kaspersky is the best Anti-Virus out there, according to multiple tests. To answer the OP's original question: neither of the ones you mentioned are very good. Go with Kaspersky.
If you're silly enough to download pirated software with trojans i.e. iwork09, photoshop cs4....
NOD32 or Avira. Stay away from AVG.
