    Hi
    First - Excuse my bad english :rolleyes:
    I need advice concerning good security suite created from separated apps.

    Now I'm using Avira Premium AV and Outpost Pro firewall. But I found it not enough for my PC security. I was using Kaspersky AV and Kaspersky Internet Security but it missed a lot of malware.

    I have tried MBAM and A-squared but in free versions they don't give a resident security althou the are perfect on-demand anti-malware scanners (for me :) )
    And now please advice me - would it be a good suite :
    Avira - Antivir
    Outpost - firewall
    MBAB / A-squared - on demand scan
    ThreatFire - resident anti-malware.


    I need advice concerning - red / bolded apps, particularly resident anti-malware app (preferably free :) )

    Maybe other propositions for on -demand and resident anti-malware.
    Thanx in advance
    Chris.

    I suggest you use MBAM and/or SAS and/or A-squared as on-demand scanners. Norton Security Scan and Clean is also a good on-demand AV. You can also consider using a sandbox, such as Sandboxie, GesWall or DefenseWall. Outpost has some form of HIPS so you shouldn't need ThreatFire.

    However, if you were using Avira Premium AV and Outpost Pro firewall / Kaspersky suite and still got infected, then you must have done something wrong. Always use common sense when you're browsing the web, use a browser other than IE and keep your software up to date. This should minimise your chance of getting infected.

    Thank you.
    I need RESIDENT anti-malware. I know that MBAB and a-squared can be used ad on-demand scanner but I need resident program to protect my PC in real time.

    Hello mrnikt;

    I suggest:
    Avira Premium; real-time antivirus protection (as well as other malware threats) with excellent detection capability.
    Also relatively light/fast and a proven performer.

    Comodo version 3.8 FW with D+

    Firefox with NoScript and AdBlock.

    Returnil or SandboxIE.

    Keep SAS and MBAM as well as A2 (free) for on-demand scanners. Also, Eset online antivirus scanner.

    Finally, a daily HDD image.

    Too much ?
    Some will suggest that using a program such as returnil or SandboxIE eliminates the need for any third party AV, AS, or FW, but I don't think so.
    I believe that security involves a multi-layered approach and, of course, smart surfing.

    Avira Premium plus Outpost Firewall already provides oustanding resident protection. You can also use a sandbox, such as Sandboxie, GesWall or DefenseWall, for added protection.

    GL. I think KIS is the best by far & it wasn't good enough? Is it just me that thinks your OS is not fully patched? Or that you invited malware onto your computer? o_O

    In line with others here I'd recommend Sandboxie.
