Before this, I love to use the MSE, very lite Smile I do like it, but there is something bug on MSE that will cause Windows Security Center corrupted. SO I decide to change Smile

I've no idea.
But when I get that problem, automatically I can't open the MSE and update it. It'll auto close.
So I contact MSE live support. They help me solve it. But after few weeks, I get back the same problem. So I decide to move

no disrespect but I'm using AVG cuz it is the best out there

simple to use
it does nut bug you with stupid access questions..
so far it have always done an excilent scanning and removing job (virus free for 3 years now) provide a excellent basic protection (free version ) and advance protection (paid)

and its the firs SOFTWARE I've ACTUALLY PAID FOR (with no regrets ) ^^

Hi there,

A hardware firewall? Sounds interesting; can you tell us more about this?

I use Microsoft Security Essentials. It isn't the best, but it's free, and I'm very careful online. Lol, before going on almost any website I check it with Norton Safe Web AND MyWOT.

a) I only download music from trustworthy sites.

c) I only visit the sites I trust.
But of course, an AV is really handy.

it might still be safe to have one. even trusted sites can lead to adware/malware/viruses even if its unintended. can be hackers that jump on that website and just start attacking people.

i don't do much on my macbook except school stuff but still have something to feel protected.

i run norton on my mac and pc. i used to use spysweeper but it really was not worth it.. norton + ccleaner was better then spysweeper.

I used to use McAfee, however now I am using the Windows 8 one. Works well, currently disabled though as it kept deleting some Sims 3 fixes after extracting Razz

Going to enable it now.

I just use Microsoft Security Essentials. It's free, easy to use, very light on resources and so far hasn't let anything nasty get through.

I use Microsoft Security Essentials - which is free. The review I read said it had "a small footprint", and doesn't get in your way. So anything that isn't a resource hog gets an "A" in my book. I really like it. I seldom think about it.
I also have malwarbytes. I run one or the other now and then, but I usually don't even think about it, given my 'boring' internet habits, ha ha. Not many troubles with word processing and the Sims, I guess.

I did have avast on my computer but don't use it anymore due to the fact that it played havoc with my sims game and after the last update it completely slowed my system down and crashed nearly everything. I now use only MSE which is fast and efficient.

I do suggest you to use Malwarebyte together with MSE. MSE it self don't have total security Smile ....

I've tried many of those listed here, and I ended up settling with one that I haven't seen mentioned; Panda Cloud. Here's a rundown of my dislikes with some of those listed:

- Avast!: Too egotistical - when it declares something malware it acts as if it knows better than you (ie: no options to ignore other than going into the UI and manually adding an exclusion for the directory [which didn't work for me], putting said "malware" back into the virus chest seconds after you remove it from the chest)

- Avira: The popups after updating. You can use a policy setting to disable it, but after a few years of using Avira (and formatting/reinstalling regularly) you get tired of work-arounds. [I think they started putting the notifier in the Antivirus executable anyhow]

- PC Tools Antivirus: They ticked me off with the switching to "Security Suite" and getting rid of the stand alone Firewall.

- AVG: Ads

- Norton: When I was in the military we got it for free and I loved that DoD version, but the commercial versions are crap.


Ultimately it's going to come down to what you want instead of what you need. There is no such thing as a "perfect" Antivirus. The "top" AV suites typically revolve around three rating categories: 1) Detections 2) Cleanup 3) Usability (ie: how "user friendly" is it?). Those that score high in #1 typically also have a lot of false alarms. Those that score high in #2 don't typically need to score high in #1 - so fewer false alarms. And no matter how they score on those two categories, if there are issues with #3 it may not matter what they CAN detect or clean up. I prefer one that may not be the best in any of those individual categories, but combined they produce a very decent product that isn't too annoying. The solution for me was Panda Cloud - just make sure you remove the URL filter if you use it Smile
