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...
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.
While browsing today, I found this site with useful info regarding major disasters and the viruses that follow during these time periods. It has some interesting blog posts.
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.

Not long ago my security software ran out, and I wasn't sure which one I wanted to go with. While I was deciding a friend recommended at least installing MalWarebytes (which is free) in the meantime. Sorry for the length of this, but I have a weird mess on my hands. Yesterday morning I...

I again everyone! I wanted to suggest another Weekly Topic of Inspiration about "Taking the Offensive Against Hackers." These days, we all know that we should use updated antivirus and firewall software to help keep "malware" out of our PCs. That's a given. But what ELSE are we...

For the past 5 or 6 hours I have been dealing with some fraud and identity theft that I discovered and I'm now really weary of my online security; I hope some HP "techies" can help... I use the Windows 7 built-in firewall and I use the free version of Avast for antivirus. ...
