people still have optical drives on their computers?
I use my Blu-ray burner all the time. Verbatim 25 GBs for about 30 cents each. Nice backup option compared to thumb drives, plus I don't accidently leave a Blu-ray disc in my pants pocket and have it go through the wash.
What's a DVD?
A DVD is an optical disc containing either a lower resolution avi or mpg at 720p in a Matroska container so it can be archived on a shelf in a cool dry environment for long term storage, or porn.
I have found that the people who do not think they will be, and want most not to be confined, are. Society is against you. Don't you forget it.
I like ESET, especially the business version with console. I get it for my large customers.
Kaspersky is good. I use it for email gateways and small offices. The firewall breaks some shit, though.
I'm always removing viruses from computers that are running avast!, McAfee, Symantec, and AVG, so I won't be using those anytime soon
Trend Micro seems to be great, but I only have a couple of users running it so I have never used it in a large environment.
Vipre is a bad joke (I tested it).
MalwareBytes is great at removing crap and I use it often, but I have yet to use the paid version.
TDSSKiller http://support.kaspersky.com/v... for rootkits.
I'm thinking purchasing MalewareBytes for a small office soon (8 users), but I may go with Trend Micro. I'm on the fence.
