I have used Trend Micro and found it quite simple to use,and well updated,but I wanted to hear from people who might know best,what's the best software out there that one could buy over the internet??..
It has to be reasonable in price...updatedable,frequently...and most of all not too complicated..
Any suggestions..???...ANYONE...

It scans all incoming files for viruses, as well as scans your entire computer all the time inbetween incoming files. It can also be set to scan P2P programs and Instant Messaging Programs, as well as Mail Programs.

I have Sygate as my FireWall, as well as a hardware.
Avast as my AV.
SpySweeper and Adwatch as my full time SpyWare sweepers.
SpySweeper, AdAware SE, Spybot S&D and Giant as my regular SpyWare Sweepers.
FireFox as my popup blocker and IE replacement.

Everyone of these products are free.

For me... I use:

*Mozilla Firefox as my browser/popup blocker
GET FIREFOX: (click the button in my sig)
*AntiVir Personal Edition as my virus software (DOY!)
*Adaware SE as my spyware controller

*As for firewall, I use the hardware firewall integrated in my router. I have no need for a software one as the hardware one seems to work well. But if you would like a personal software firewall, I recommend the free version of Zone Labs' ZoneAlarm Personal Firewall.


You can check HERE to see if your router or current firewall is doing its job.

I use Windows XP Pro with SP2 and have had no cases of viruses or exceptional spyware buildup within the past 6 months.

Most people think of Windows as a bug-ridden OS and while that may be true, it is the responsibility of the computer user to make sure that they take care of their computer by doing periodic virus and spyware scans. It is vital in today's computing world.

I hope I was of help to not just you, Horus_Re, but to the many other users of ATS/BTS.

Thank you.
