    I'm somehow afraid of losing all my passwords and account details so today I've deceided to secure my computer because I think I will die if something happens to my login details. You know how simple is to get passwords stolen? Simply if you have passwords storaged in Mozilla Password remember you are vulnerable - for example if you ever open a file infected with a stealer all your passwords and other important informations are sent to a third party (the stealer :p).

    I'm trying to find the best free or paid software to protect (antivirus, firewall etc. everything is needed).

    How do you protect your passwords?

    Thanks

    Well, there is of course Zone alarm, AVG, Ccleaner, Spybot and keeping all email web based. Any file that can be sent on MSN can be mailed too.
    You can use any other software with good reviews to replace any software I suggested.

    It is not a bad idea to use online services like Housecall to check your computer from time to time either.

    If you want more security you might consider not using hacked software in your Windows setup and switching to another OS like Ubuntu for use on important things like banking and such. You can still get hacked, but it is harder and usually requires your help.

    Some people like to go wireless for some reason. This is not a real improvement on security even if you use WPA2 and use a 20 character pass that is changed every month.
    Using such passwords would improve security greatly but I would still not call it safe. It would be safe enough for normal circumstances but if the right resources are available like a decent botnet they will get in eventually.

    Just my two cents, hope it helps. :)

    For me Avast is best thanks to its exceptional Update System.

    I think no one can beat Avast with its update system.Also,good interface and tons of features.

    Go for Avast !

    Best to prevent is Norton With sonar

    Believe me I've worked on the other side of a antivirus if you know what I mean :p

    Its what I would go with

    May I be really blunt here? A full fledged vm like VirtualBox or VMWare is your best "antivirus". The degree of sophistication of current fuds and infection vectors makes relatively trivial to work a way around an av, no matter how good it is.

    I'd recommend executing any "questionable" program downloaded off some non 100% legit source inside a virtual machine if security is a concern. HTH

    I'm sure others have already listed it, but I've used AVG for the past 4-6 years on approximately 10 different computers, always great!

    right man, if anyone have a crypter with a new stub, no av in the whole world can detect it.

    best tool to scan or analys is a sandbox or virtualbox

    I think kaspersky or ESET for antivirus. Online Armor for Firewall protection. Those are my suggestions for PAID software.

    For free anti virus I would use Avast or AVG, they both have a decent heuristics scan engine. Now for firewall, hands down for free I would go with Zone Alarm Free Firewall. :D

    I have tried a few and found Kaspersky Internet Security to be the best of them all.
