Hi, i am looking at buyign a new internet security suite because my currnet one norton seemed to have messed up wireless and didnt want to work with it. I currently have NIS 06. I dont particularly want to be buying something too expensive. Can anyone suggest any?
PS - I was wonderig about F-Secure but not sure what they are like.
antivirus - kaspersky pro or others are suggesting nod32. i can only speek for kaspersky as that is waht i use and well its the best iv ever found with definition updates ever hour or so.
firewall - sygate pro is aparantly a good one but i myself have had problems with the free version just not leting any traffic out atall. if it is constantly shreeking at you its a good firewall as all firewalls need to be trained.
Depends how paranoid you want to be or depends how paranoid you want to feel. If you are a pc homeuser which I suspect you are, any of the free download anti-virus and firewall downloads are perfectly adequate. Many research results have proved that free security software is every bit as good, if not better than some of these 50 quid packages that all you get for your money is a support and help line, plus of course any definition updates automatically. With free software you have to remember to get any updates yourself plus there is limited back up support. One other thing I would suggest is that you ger an anti keylogger programme download as this will protect you from any online transactions that may make for goods or sevices from 'snoopers' trying to access either your passwords or personal data such as credit card details etc snd thereby becoming 'you' Downlaod 'HiJack' this too which will monitor any 'alien' activity that might be going on.
I think Bogbrain is referring to anti-malware apps. I can't suggest a definitive top three here, because there are so many (some of which are actually very dodgy and should be avoided like the plague).
But the three that I have found most effective, based on the recommendations of those whom I trust, are:
A-squared Free, Ewido, and MS Antispyware Beta. Which seems perpetually to be referred to by MS as a beta, even though MS took it over about a year ago.
