I third threatfire, more effective than defense+ of comodo pro firewall at the time being.
hey calvin.. i have comodo pro v184.108.40.2065.... you still recommend threatfire to the defense+ of the version?? i've been reading lot of mixed reviews abt defense+... so again.. which do you recommend?
Some people say defense+ is fixed in the new version, but personally, it broke my system. I recommend you turn defense+ off and use threatfire just to be safe.
AVG is really good. It's also NOT a memory hog like Norton and the like. But it's known for false positives.
Avira has a much better detection rate.
Go to http://www.av-comparatives.org/
click on "Comparatives" on the left toolbar
Then view the 2 latest "Online Results" (Dated August and November 2007)
EDIT: Also, you can take a look at this.
I would link directly, but it doesn't work with their website... I tried.
EDIT: oh I get it, there are no December 2007 results, it was a typo . Fixed that post
And much higher false positives too. This is worser than having an actual virus- a review stated.
Well I disagree. I would rather have my antivirus software detect all the viruses and some false positives than not all the viruses and no false positives because I can always google the programs that avira finds. Or, I can send them the information and they'll let me know if it's a false positive.
A small price to pay for having a much higher detection rate. Besides, in later updates, Avira has had a much lower rate of false positives than before, so it's improving.
I agree with crash, could you give a link to the review? I'd like to see what reviewer (if they have common sense) would say that.
