    Default What Antivirus Programs Do DJ's Use?

    I have 20 days of protection remaining with Kaspersky - time to renew. No issues with Kaspersky, having used Norton previously. 2011/12 reviews are unanimous - BitDefender comes out tops. What do DJ's/Producers use?

    (Other than the obvious answer.......Mac )

    Try use a dedicated dj laptop if you can afford to and don't use it for Internet, I pretty much use mine just for running traktor and growing songs, iPad for Internet and pc for production/ downloads, I'm not sure how much resources antivirus uses but I know a few years back it used a lot of the processing power

    None. I don't click on stupid stuff, don't let my kids use my DJ laptop, and don't DL from blogs.

    My ASUS only has Win7 (no outlook), iTunes, Nero. Only visit sites like this (incl RA, Discogs, official news and sport sites). Download from beatport and Juno. Updates from Apple/Windows/NI etc. Would I be 'safe' Chris?

    Yes in my opinion I think you would be, my laptop hasn't been factory reset for over 2 years and everything seems to be running smooth, mates dad (computer programmer) had a look over it and ran some software and said I have no traces of viruses or mal-ware..

    The free version of avast is pretty good and non-intrusive, though i almost never have to use i because i'm not dumb about where i click and i can tell if a site is gonna be sketchy

    On my PC I just got Microsoft Security Essentials.

    It's free and works a treat.
