Which antivirus software is safe when using VIVE ?


Recommended Posts

I need to install an antivirus software on my new VIVE ready PCI. Could you please advise one that is compatible, efficient and won't hamper my VR activities ?

I read on the web that AVAST did "brick" the HTC VIVE firmware updates.

This is very alarming so I really need some help before installing anything.

thanks in advance

Are you using an antivirus program on your VIVE computer without problems (either when the firmwares need updating or when running games without lagging) ?


Considering antivirus software may slow down the VIVE experiences, I'm currently considering setting up a firewall on another machine, white listing anything pertaining to VIVE or Steam. I'll let you know what we end up with :-)


Thanks for your answer nevertheless, I hope more people share their feedback so I take a decision in the best direction.
