I know that what I have is pretty good. I have Comodo Internet Security Premium that has a Firewall and Anti-Virus( it runs everyday about 6 AM). I can get free Norton Security Sute since I have Comcast. Depending what you have, you may also have a choice of Firewalls and AntiVirus [like AVG]. Originally, they had McAfee Suite - that was $200 and the latter, $150. You can find lists on two sites: www.filehippo.com(stay clear of file sharing!) and one has on the top right corner, freeware at www.majorgeeks.com.
I had some feedback about Spybot S&D as not being that good, but I will keep it until I manage to get Windows 7. Two other items are good: Super Anti-Spyware and Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware. Also, I have an old cleaner that cleans my registry but Piriform has two items that are good (and free), CCleaner 2.36 and Defraggler 1.21. There are Anti-Rootkits on majorgeeks.com and they will tell you ONLY ONE Anti-virus. Darrell
Can anybody advise me which internet security software to use please? I know that this is like asking how long a piece of string is, and I know that most people have their favourite software. But I really need some advice.
I've always paid for security software, and at the moment I'm using BitDefender Internet Security 2010. I've been using BitDefender for some years now, and it used to be great. Recently though it is causing me all sorts of problems, and seems to have more and more glitches.
I've been checking out comparison sites, but there is so much conflicting information out there, that it just gets more and more confusing.
Any advice that you can give me would be gratefully received.
