which anti-virus?

  podlod 07:33 19 Apr 2010

Hi, I am very paranoia regarding viruses etc, so I have 4 anti-virus (and the removal of)software running as follows; AVIRA> MALWAREBYTES> A-SQUARED> and SPYBOT. Your knowledge please if any of these will conflict with one another and if you think I should remove one or two which software can you advice me to delete? Thanks for any help.

Not sure if any of the anti-spyware programs give you full time protection or not.
A new version of A squared will be coming out shortly.
Maybe think about paying the one of payment for Malwarebytes and removing Spybot.

I only have kaspersky internet security as it is a all in one solution, never had any virus etc. too many programes just slows pc.

maybe tell us how you know that you do not have any Virus's or Spyware if you don't check for them.

I use Eset Smart Security. Works well and doesn't slow the computer down.
I also use Prevx (that's brilliant too.)
Neither of these are free but I feel that my computer is very secure now.
