Default virus debate

hey guys
i know there have been many diffrent topics on which anti virus is better and its mostly between norton and mcfee.
i pose a diffrent pair, i have a choice between f-prot and bitdefender.
ive used both but still dont know which one is better as bitdefender has some sort of firewall and f-prot has real time protection (resets comp if run)
so... which is better bitdefender or f-prot ?

Default Trend Micro!!!

Man i cant tell how much i love this program. you pay $50 for first year, then $25 for every year after that...i think. the $50 come with Anti-virus, Personal firewall, privacy protection, and Wi-Fi wireless patrol (if your paranoid about is). And their customer service people actual know stuff. You dont get the feeling that your smarter than them like you do with WINDOWS techs, god i hate those people. www.trendmicro.com ive used this program on peoples computers because their norton wasnt finding trojans, and yes everything was up to date. trend micro also has a little spyware detector. just an all around good program i think.

NOD32 is the best in my humble opinion. Only because I haven't heard of those two Anti Virus programs. NOD32 worked like a charm when I was using it so I would say get that.

between the two i choose bitdefender, but of all, you can only choose between mcafee and norton.

I use Mcafee Internet Security Suite 8 and it works great. The only thing i dont like about it is is that you have to log in as an admin to install the updates. I set up two accounts - admin and user (i use this one most)- for security reasons. Unfortunately, i have to log off and log in as admin which is annoying

ive alredy got norton as i said but it slows me down and crashes a lot so i dnt want to use that any more. ive heard of people complaining about mcafee aswell so im not sure to get tht either. AVG has had some good reports, that trendmicro seemse alright aswell. but i only want one would it be better to get a anti virus or a firewall ??

Hey, why bring up old threadS?

To the guy who reported this: This thread was started in July, and was then left untouched until September. It was then left untouched for another month, and that pattern of events classes it as an "old" thread. So it stays closed, I'm afraid.
