    Hey guys,
    I was wondering what type of virus protection you use? And are there any special systems that you recommend to protect myself from hacking? Any tips. Thanks!

    Kaspersky is great. Will consider also Bitdefender in the future.

    Look into prevention methods, staying safe online and what not. That will put you far ahead of a user who just relies on an AV. Not that they are bad to have but the real goal is to have it and not need it.

    Prevention > detection - basically.

    I really and personally like AVAST. I have used it for a bit now and never had any issue with it.

    Hi,
    Right now i'm using Bitdefender Total Security and it's working great for me.
    But the best way to be safe is to stay away from dubious sites and downloads.

    Agree with this. I have seen many viruses stay undetected from the best AV programs.

    Avast, malware bytes, tinywall and periodic analysis with process explorer combined with virus total also works well. And regular reloads just to be safe...

    Combined with safe browsing and download habits, I still stand by Windows Defender to this day. Seems that the recent versions on 8 and 10 also have anti malware. Now, if you're doing something that has high risk of infection, why not a virtual machine and/or VPNs/TOR?

    I used AVG Antivirus for 6 years along with Malwarebytes, but I recently stopped using both and use lame old Windows Defender on my primary computer. I don't really download much on this computer nor do I visit dubious websites, but I still use AVG and Malwarebytes on my laptop as that's where I do most of my downloading.
