Sgt. D. Pilla;4581487Actually, that footnote reads...

LOL, it reads just the way anyone would read it and the way I interpreted it. AntiVir's free version DOES NOT include ad and spyware protection. Avast DOES, anyone can see they put it above Avast merely because it's retail version is a bit better. It's free version is not as robust as Avast's. You have a knack for turning something simple into a pointless argument sometimes.

I was considering looking into AntiVir's free version if they ever got the updater bug and false positive problem fixed. It appears they fixed the false positive problem, don't know about the updater, but if it can't even catch ad and spyware I can't see trusting it.

i use Symantec End Point Protection, though it does tend to take up alot of resources. especially at boot up.

I'll consider that a retraction. ;)

You're softening D, you used to be so hard edged. Must be that Plasma HD cloud you're on. I'm anxiously awaiting the day I'll have a 1080p rig. BTW, show us some HD screenshots if you get the chance, you can always thumbnail em.;)

I'm currently using ESET Smart Security.

I think it's pretty good. Very low on resources (for the most part).

Antivirus and Antispyware Software - Download ESET NOD32 Antivirus or ESET Smart Security and eliminate viruses

You can get a free trial there.

What HD player software are you using for Blu-ray?

Back OT, still using Avast's free AV, but again, may switch to Comodo for my firewall soon. On a side note, I didn't know Sophos had an AV, and am surprised it has such a high false positive rating (or low score rather). I use their free anti rootkit tool and haven't had that problem with it.

I'm "Buying" *ahem* Cyberlink PowerDVD and Intervideo WinDVD 8... I will probably actually buy PureVideo HD from nVidia to unload some work to the GPU. But for the time being, if my CPU can't decode a BluRay movie without lagging, something is seriously wrong with BluRay decoding standards
