  • Antivirus Software

    OK, what is the latest recommendation for antivirus software that can be used on the Edius machine? I tried to keep the machine separate with just Edius, but I do need to install some other things, so I want the virus protection. Had major problem over the years with Norton, and was told Bitdefender blocks too many things, and in particular is not good for Edius. I don't care if free or for money... opinions?

    I have used this product for a few years and it hasn't let me down yet. Works with no issues with Edius and has useful extra tools.

    It is worth looking around for better prices....I think Amazon has it cheaper.

        I use ZoneAlarm (ZA; approx. 50 euro/year) since a lot of years. Never had Virus-, phishing- etc. problems.
        To get best performance when working with Edius I remove the LAN-connection to my router and stop ZA before starting Edius.

          Nod32 Antivirus does not interfere with EDIUS once you added 3 C drive folders and the project storage location to the exclusion list

            AVG free and ZoneAlarm free work just fine if exclusions are set following Antons settings.
            I only had 1 issue in 10+ years and that was user error......

                Using Webroot AntiVirus mainly because it has been efficient in removing threats and light on resources. Years ago was known as PrevX.

                  I'm using Bitdefender with E7.5 and it appears to work OK as currently configured. However, I have not assessed to determine how much, if any, speed loss. (I gave up on Norton and McAfee a few years ago - too much overhead.)

                    Does Norton have issues except a hit in performance? Thanks.

                      I am currently using AVG Free, but have also used Avira and Avast free versions on other NLE systems I have used over the years. All three of them are light on system resources, so they don't slow thing's down. AVG did release a version a few years ago that had a performance issue, so that's when I used Avaira and Avast, but tried AVG again the second last time I did a fresh install.

                      I normally stay away from the full system suites, as they tend to have a lot more impact on performance.

                      I gave up on Norton and McAfee about 12 or 15 years ago, when they really started impacting performance, and I realized that they were only doing virus definition updates about once a month, while AVG, Avira and Avast were doing updates every day or two. A lot of viruses can make their rounds in 30 plus days.

                      I've never tried ESET, but I heard it is good.

                        Symantec/Norton releases new definitions every four hours.

                        Having said that, definitions today are very different from what they were then. Creating definitions to identify specific viruses was made impractical by polymorphic viruses, so AV now focuses on malicious behavior and reputation, i.e. what does a program do, and where did it come from?

                          Only ever had one issue with F-secure. It blocked an old VisTitle once.

                            I had to disable the firewall on F-secure to let it see certain machines on the network. I could access the machines until I installed F-secure, then some could be seen and others not

                              I never thought about the change in what definitions are now a days. Good point.

                              However, I still find Norton and McAfee to be too resource intensive. I have had a lot of people come to me with their new machines to initialize and configure for them. Whenever I disable the Norton or McAfee that ships on them, I notice fairly substantial speed improvements, and these are just general purpose systems, not an NLE where performance is required.
