I've been keeping a look out for some comparison tests but there doesn't seem to be anything that's independent or "scientific" enough.

AVG and other antivirus

I recently posted on PcPitstop http://pcpitstop.ibforums.com/index.php?showtopic=59760 that there seemed to be more posts lately from people using AVG getting viruses etc which were not being cleaned. AVG is very popular, but I had my doubts after our "Hitler" poster got into this forum and I copped a couple of nasties. I switched to AntiVir after that.
I've been trying to find some comparisons of antivirus programmes but all reports fail to compare properly. Out of all this someone posted this link http://www.suggestafix.com/index.php...T&f=16&t=11185 which I have seen before but I lost it
Just thought some of you might be interested

Zone Alarm - new update and Norton

I run Norton AV and Zone Alarm (free version) and a little while ago when I updated to ZA Version 50_590 it caused a conflict with Norton when scanning e-mails so I uninstalled and reverted to the older ZA version 45_594. I think there was a mention in a thread here but I cannot find it right now. It was also discussed on PcPitstop forums.

Now there is a newer Zone Alarm V51_011. Any idea if this problem has been resolved?

Thanks Oatman. I've binned AVG although, I must say, it always seems to have worked ok for me.

No infections when I ran the newly installed 'Avast'
