    I use avast but I fancy a change.

    My comodo firewall seems to be quite good but any recommendations for a security setup guys..?

    Yeah, I use Eset Smart Security on my PC.

    But for my laptop, I use Panda Cloud (free anti-virus) - it uses so little resource you feel it isn't even installed on your system. No firewall though.

    I have been using eset smart security (Nod32) for over two years now. Doesn't slow down my PC like Norton used to and touch wood it's not let a virus through yet (that I know of anyway)

    I use Spyware Doctor with antivirus and it is really good. Why not just use Comodo Internet Security? It's free and always gets 100% over at Matousec.

    I heard Kaspersky site got hacked about a month ago. Evrything dloaded was a virus.

    I like the sound of Panda and nod32 is a bit draining if I remember.

    Thing is eset is very very good

    Decided to stick with avast. Its pretty decent and has never given me any trouble.

    Eset runs so slowly on my comp so i uninstalled it

    I use Avast on my home pc's and ClamWin on all my Windows boxes. Works great - can't even remember last time I had a virus or any serious problems with my computers.
