Some folks like these things.....one package...gets everything.
Being a bit on the frugal side....read that as CHEAP...I prefer the freeware pieces.
If I don't like the way a freeway piece looks/acts I toss it and get a different one.
I've been using Trend Micro Internet Security for the last couple of years and haven't been too crazy about it. I had to lower the settings to the bare mimumum because it wouldn't let me go to website's that I was very familiar with and had no problem visiting before. It's a pain to have to go into their system and add the websites so that's why I lowered the settings. And even when I did add the websites, it still wouldn't allow me to go to some of them. Also, customer service was awful!
Any recommendations on effective security software that is not a pain to use? I am not technically-oriented so creating my own is not an option.
Btw, I've got Vista but I'll be upgrading to Windows 7 very soon.
There are so many trains of thought on security software(s) you could go on for days, everyone has a different opinion. Many use the freebies and get by quite well, AVG, AVASt,etc. If you use one of the free AV softwares they typically do not include an antispyware/malware capability, so there would be another download to cover that/those bases. For someone who is not computer savvy it may be best to purchase one of the boxed AV software suites, there are lots out there, including Trend Micro. As the prior post stated do a little research. I have several computer systems and a couple of laptops and have experimented with quite a few AV softwares, including Trend. The choice for me over the past several years has become Kaspersky the other package I liked was the AVG Suite (not free) which is quite functional. There are others. Your choice, good luck!
