What anti-virus do you use??

Postby DaShiz23 » Sun Jan 02, 2011 6:02 pm

So my Norton Anti-virus subscription will be running out any day now. What are some that you use, and how well do they stack up?
I'm willing to shell out the $50 to re-up, but if I dont have to, then why?

Is there any anti-virus stuff for phones? I saw the story about the new Android virus impacting Chinese phones, and I thought "These phones need anti-virus programs."

I just haven't looked in the market yet.

Lookout.

As for PC antivirus, I'm using AVG.

I've been using Kaspersky on the recommendation of our computer guy but I can't really recommend it because a few months ago for the first time ever I got a virus and had to reformat. Cost me an entire day.

Lookout.

Installed.

I'm using a work phone. I declined their backup plan, and I'm thinking their premium plan isn't worth it. Is that correct?

I have Lookout on my Incredible and it's quite worth it ;-D

I wouldn't pay a nickel to back up or protect a work phone. If it crashes, they buy you another one.

I use avast since it's free, haven't had any problems with it yet.
