Switching AV software

After a few days investigating software antivirus options on the market today, I finally uninstalled Symantec’s Norton Antivirus 2005. Among the multitude of AV software options, my short list was down to Grisoft’s AVG Anti Virus, Trend Micro’s PC-Cillin and ESET’s NOD32. Bottom line is, there doesn’t really appear to be one top AV that stands head and shoulders above the crowd. ESET’s NOD32 seems most consistent however in popping up in people’s recommendations so I went for it. Time will tell if it was a wise thing to do. NAV has served me well for many years but has become bloated. Some of the resources that supported that decision are to be found here, here and here.
