Re: Avast, Avira, AVG or Sophos?

Nimer Jaber


I recommend Sophos here. It runs great on all machines I run it on, and it is accessible. It allows me to manage up to ten machines I believe, and just runs great. Highly recommend, and reviews are very favorable, although I have also seen some tech experts recommend that most users stick with MSE these days... still, call me old-school, I can't recommend that an individual run an anti-virus program by an OS vendor... let Microsoft do what they do well. Anyway, that is an opinion, and the ratings for MSE have gotten better lately.

In short, yes, I recommend Sophos.

never thought of the fact that one might become afraid to venture into
something new.

thanks for pointing that out.
