    With the recent ads virus here. The internet security software I had did not catch all the trojan and phishing on my PC. After running Malware-bytes 15 more infected areas were found and cleaned.


    What is the Best Protection for a  PC, my security software needs updating in 3 days and I feel there must be better out there.

    Please share your suggestions...  smile

      Thak you for sharing.. Right now I've been paying £36.00 per year for Kaspersky Internet Security, so it does not have to be free, though something that works well and is effective is great smile heck, if the free stuff is better, that is even better.

    Agree. Avast works and have had it for years. Has stopped every virus. Malwarebytes is considered the best remover.

      Kaspersky Internet Security is a good security program.If you want a free antivirus then Avira personal and Avast are good.Bit defender Internet Security 2011 is also a very good security software,i am using it on Windows 7 and it works very well and effective.

      I use Kaspersky on my PC, but I have a laptop I use a lot and I have Linux on it. It needs no anti-virus software. I love it.

      As far as anti-malware is concerned Malwarebytes is without doubt the anti malware I have found. As far as antivirus is concerned, there all much of a muchness and it really depends on the person and how they view the threats of viruses.

      If your a computer and internet newbie, then it will pay to break out your credit card and go with a comprehensive internet security program although if your pretty 'computer savvy' and have your computer properly configured with your My Documents' folder and other personal folders on a hard drive other than C drive and have made incremental images of your c drive or Windows backups, then a free antivirus such as AVG will suffice.

      Best all around protection is four things.

      1. Education on computer nasties
      2. An anti-virus program (one only, having more than two conflicts with one another) a freely available one is fine.
      3. Every anti-malware, anti-spyware, anti-trojan, anti-rootkit program you can get your hands on. The free ones are good.
      4. Advise from people who know what the heck they are doing when it comes to removing nasties from computers when points 1,2 & 3 fail.

      Hope that helps.

      Aware, I am using Norton Internet Security. I think this is the best anti virus software because it is well know brand and this is also a combination of high security for Internet Malware and Viruses as well. Give it a try bro.
