    I now use comodo, light on cpu and free. Best program ive used so far. For extra precaution disable UPnP in your router.

    The protocol, abbreviated UPnP, lets computers, printers, and other devices make themselves easily discoverable to a network router. But new research by the security firm Rapid7 shows that it could also let hackers easily discover and exploit those routers, too. And the problem is "universal," indeed: A wide-ranging scan of the Internet show that it affects as many as 50 million unique devices.

    I agree. Get the paid versions of both and you won't regret it.
    I have been using them for the past 6 years with no problems.

    NOD32 internet suite! Full protection and does not eat up all the computers resources.

    Comodo Internet Security, it's good and consumes less resources than BitDefender Internet Security 2014
