  • free anti-virus to use with Edius system

    What's a good free anti-virus software that doesn't screw up Edius/NX or Edius/Storm systems?

    I was recommended Avira, but it doesn't seem to update properly anymore, is AVG OK?

    maybe with the system you have AV software won't affect it that much, but as you probably know the recommendation is not to run any AV software on an editing machine

        We use AVG as the anti-virus together with Zone Alarm the firewall, we like that solution a lot but on our editing machines we don't install any of those and it doesn't access the inet just the LAN to get files needed we keep them as isolated as possible and with the minimum # of applications.

          Any non-realtime antivirus should be fine with EDIUS.

          It's the "realtime" protection, where the AV system scans every file as it is accessed, that really slows things down.

            AVG Free is the one - running on 3 editing systems for years - not a twitch.

              I haven't been using any anti virus software for years....and my system's fine. Just don't go to sites that you don't trust and don't download anything that's not official and if it looks fishy, it probably is.

                  I've been using Avast as well for a few years...works great with one caveat for me. I discovered on my systems that when it is running it will sometimes slow the switching between apps if you have more than one app open at the same time. I had lots of trouble with this awhile back and finally discovered it was Avast. I just disable it whenever editing on those machines. My main editing machine doesn't hit the net so I have nothing on it. The others do occasionally so I have on those.

                      Why not just buy the best one, I use NOD32 from eset systems. Microsoft use it to protect their severs and
                      most big companies do as well, it's meant to be the best... The price isn't to bad and each time you renew it
                      they give you a good discount,

                          Try this link Tony, it is to the Australian site but may work for you.

                          Also their is a bit is setting it up correctly if you do decide to buy it, but if you ring your local office they should talk you through it. they also have help files and I think video's on their site now to.

                            Tony also one more thing, I have never had a problem with nod32, I have put it on systems that has had other antivirus software i.e like Nortons, Macfee, AVG, ect ect, and it still found virus, it has the lowset footprint on the system compared to any others and doesn't affect Edius at all.
