With this question being posted on the Windows Phone section of the forum i'll assume you have one of those. If that the case you don't need anti virus for that OS, it currently cannot be infected by a virus.

For suggestions for PC based anti-virus software you need to ask your question on a windows PC forum. Personally I use the free Microsoft security essentials and it works well.

I use Microsoft Security Essentials and at least for me it is sufficient, and it's free.

For pc I must say, I agree on Essential from Microsoft. During the years a lot of testing of firewalls and antivirus and now I am fully satisfied.

 Spybot can also be useful...as complementary program.

All other firewalls and antivirus program just create other problems in my opinion. I really dont miss all the more advanced programs at all anymore...they are just a waste in space...

The McAfee Security Suite is pretty good. It does have some problems with fighting trojans sometimes. Then Again, all of them do.

It would be nice if you could get the McAfee Internet Security Suite and also the Web-root Spy Sweeper. As a team, those 2 are unbeatable!!

For your cellphone, if you use a nokia, The F - Seccure antivirus suite is good. Although, any antivirus program on your cell will slow it down.

No, don't BUY any anti virus.....espeically a suite...waste of money.

 

Also, you don't need anti virus on your phone

Re: Best anti-virus for PC and Mobile Phone?

Will post to Windows phone section as the Lumina 800 is such BUT, if there is no need for virus protection for a windows phone can anyone tell me why when I use Explorer does a specific website, which has an address starting https:// get hi-jacked to a spoof site via a warning message from MS that it's security certificate is suspect. Not being fully awake the first time, I continued to the website but presence of an "odd" link made me exit quickly. This site works perfectly well on my laptop and PC.

 

Answers on how I can resolve the problem are welcomed before I ditch the phone in favour of one that can be virus protected............

Well, you can officially begin to worry about your phone. I was texted an image from an unknown party (I deleted it), but when I texted a friend, it got passed to her.

What can I do to protect my Windows phone?
