F-PROT Antivirus is first antivirus that i used. It was 1991 i think. I was just a little kid. Then the market was very limited. I remember that they were F-PROT, Norton, McAfee, NOD on Yugoslavian market...actually in the professional institutions. A couple of times F-PROT detected DOS directed virus. My dad told me that he used Norton. He also told me that many times Norton saved his work-his job.
Yeah, I used Ewido. And at the time, it was really good. Very disappointing when the "lifetime licenses" went 'poof' --- and they were gone.
And I used Yahoo Anti-Spy too..... and I never would have remembered that until just reminded.
And Dr. Solomon's. No one really remembers 'the good doctor' anymore. I barely remember Dr. Solomon's anymore..
Norton and Panda trials. It was late 90s.
Didn't wanna purchase a license, so I tried "alternative" ways to make them work
Since I didn't succeed, I tried AVG free and when I got a virus, I used Superantispyware to get rid of it
Norton For Years, I remember going out to local office max, each year and buying a newer copy if I couldn't afford the renew price, Then tried Windows Live One Care in 2005, (bad idea) badly infected my system then probably my own fault, then got recommendation after everything was back to normal to junk Norton/Mcaffee for 3 months, then got recommendation to drop Mcafee for Avast Free
