    hey guys,

    not sure where this thread belongs but, i basically am looking for some hardcore'ish security software. i use pretty pedestrian stuff and am looking to protect my work with something more robust.

    can anyone share their info and why?

    ah beat me to it, i was just gonna post this question (thank you search button!)

    i am looking for something better that what i have for an av/anti-malware etc because i've seen my av mysteriously shut down on it's own a couple times and am concerned i'm already infected, although researching tech forums this is the best recommended i could find so far and what i currently use:

    av: nod32 (not the security suite)
    firewall: comodo (free)
    keylogger: keyscrambler (free)
    malware: spybot s&d (free) and spyware blaster (free)
    auto updater: secunia psi

    also i've just discovered bleepingcomputer and it seems to be a highly recommended forum with a boatload of resources. still reading up.

    Well... in my opinion, the best antivirus to protect your computer from viruses and spyware is... AVG Antivirus

    Kaspersky is the best. I have it for 3 years so far and he is an virus killer :d
