    Hello,

    I just installed win7 on my new machine and i want to install on it the best AV that exists on the market.
    There are a lot and all the people that i know have different opinions about each AV which does not help me to choose a specific one so i hope that i will get all the needed information here which will help me in my decision.

    So go ahead and give me your thoughts about the AV that seems to you the best to protect you against all different infections on the net.

    Bitdefender is a good choice, and the free version does not annoy

    hello,
    i would go for eset nod32, i've been using it for a long time and it is very effective when it comes to detect any suspicious site, it also does the job to protect against the worst infections and what is very intersting with this AV is that it's extremely light, it is absolutely not ressource demanding so i definitely suggest using it.

    What happens when the free trial period runs out? Do you actually pay for it? :g:

    Okay thank you all for your posts.

    @John Sutherland
    I heard bitdefender is very good also and it is classified among the best ones but i heard also it is heavy, is that true ?
    Also, i see you're using the free version but is the free version capable of protecting in a very effective way compared to the paid version ?

    @Chaussette
    Yes thank you, that's what i'm looking for, something light and effective at the sale time so i will look into this one, get more info about this av.
    Something else, is it free or it exists only in paid version ?

    i was actually offered a 2 years license so yes you will normally have to pay to get a license to be able to use it after the trial period expires.

    if i'm correct, you can use it for 30 days free period and after that yes you will have to pay to continue using it.
    you can use other ways to use it in premium but i don't think it's allowed to talk about it here.
