SHADOWUSER PRO 2.5, and would activate my windows firewall.
Hmmm, must admit, that's a pretty good one; good thinking! I guess Vista users will be able to say ShadowUser, plus activate my windows firewall, anti-virus, and anti-spyware.
What is the point of a silly question like this. Even sillier then the what if you could only use 4.
It's silly because no where is it written you can only use one, so what is the point.
Soooo.... to give my silly answer. I'd use the perfect perfection. The on off switch. Bingo.
So you must have selected "Nothing at all."
OpenBSD... or NetBSD... duh...
Same here most of the time...usually just running a router (I change ..every couple of months....a lot as I test out various routers and other ICS means).
I'm fine with just antivirus. I keep windows updated, only do webmail (Google and OWA from work)..so no local e-mail clients, I don't touch P2P apps, Opera for my browser (or FF if I'm running Ubuntu on my laptop) I use Trillian for my messenger, and only hit a few tech websites/forums.
If it only one I can choose then I'd use Deep Freeze and adapt my Internet behavior accordingly.
I would have chosen KAV, but imagine how many hours I'd waste if a zero-day ever got thru.
I see people answering with non-Windows solutions...
I guess the point of the thread is 1 app in Windows, right?
Acronis True Image
yeah, forgot to mention its for Windows in this case and i also forgot to add in the poll option for firewalls
but anyway, interesting input, keep it up!
Easy.. . . Tiny, I say it's a single application(YAHOO). Internet, adware, spyware, viruses, registry, memory, spawning, spoofing, DOS, etc can be stopped with it.
However, it Tiny doesn't count, I'll go with Linux (use the IPtables, very configurable FREE firewall, comes with everything) and maybe a spyware/adware/virus application, like NOD.
If that doesn't count, just Linux.
Avast actually suits me fine, have a router for inbound.
maybe Cyberhawk. Its all im using at present.
(Maybe still in beta)
Kaspersky with Extended bases.
For me the answer is simple, Anti-Virus. For product I will give the one in use on this machine. AVG Free version 7.1
I find it interesting that very few are using Norton or Macafee. I use Norton, and have for several years, without any problems. (other than pop-ups, which I have managed to beat with their Suite.
Prevx1 here as well
NOD at this point in time.
I would probably use a strong firewall like Outpost pro with all the extra features turned on. Then to cover other areas like AV and AT I would use several online services such as those at; Ewido for AT and maybe F-secure for AV.
So I guess my answer would be 'other'.
nod 32 i have a router so theres no need for a software firewall.
