    Whats a good anti-virus program

    I've tried AVG and Ad-aware, but they both keep on detecting one of my files as trojan when its not, this is happening when I try to play Yami-iro SnowDrops, it detects it as as trojan and quarantines it, I even added the file in the ignore list but it still quarantines it. is there any anti-virus program that does not automatically detects the exe files as trojan or actually listens to the IGNORE part.

    Microsoft Security Essentials is the best free one. If you want a paid one I'd go with either Kaspersky or NOD32.

    I used Kaspersky for the longest time...

    The more well-known ones can still give trouble. The lower ones might not work as well. I just use a firewall and a scanner, I never needed an antivirus~

    Re: Whats a good anti-virus program

    right now im using Microsoft Essentials and so far I like it, it doesnt quarantine the game anymore and it removes high threat virus quickly also giving description of what kind of virus it is and what it does.

    Question for those using Bitdefender, does it detect files that are not viruses or a threat as a virus and quarantine it? cause thats what I was annoyed with AVG and Ad-Aware since they keep on deleting the Yami-iro no Snow Drop game exe even if I dont run it,

    Re: Whats a good anti-virus program

    Unless you want to shell out or end up getting a cracked version of one of the best two AV's out there (Kaspersky/Nod32), then I wouldn't bother using anything but Microsoft Security Essentials to be honest.

    Some of the others are kinda okay, but those have the most friendly interfaces, best detection rates, low false positives (what you're complaining about), the lowest system footprint, and least resources used during scans. They have advanced heuristics too so they can detect things that aren't even in databases yet solely by the way their code is written, and I think that also helps contribute to really low false positive rates.

    The only false positive I ever saw with Kaspersky was... well, a crack for Kaspersky. More specifically the dll it replaced in the Kaspersky directory, but I think that makes sense since it would assume some malicious program has tried to alter its code. You can set directories or specific files to be ignored though, so even that wasn't a big deal.

    The most popular two Norton & Macafee have absolutely terrible false positive rates, use high resources, and don't have very good detection compared to Kaspersky & Nod32 - so stay away from those two.

    Indeed, if you have a genuine (or properly cracked) Windows 7, Microsoft Security Essentials is the best choice for you.
