    So there are many good lists of free security software. Here is one:

    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=290788

    ..if there is a more current list, somebody please post.

    ---------

    Several in these forums have expressed a preference for 'buying' software rather than 'renting' it.

    I agree. I've always been attracted to software that I pay once for -- without annual fees.

    Some say that the business model for one-payment software is not good.

    ---------

    What 'one & done' (One payment and done paying) security software do you use/like/know of?

    What are some examples of 'one & done' software that have not worked out?


    The 'one & done' software I use and like:

    -Malwarebytes
    -WinPatrol Pro


    The one's I like and will probably buy at some point:

    -Sandboxie
    This thread convinced me:
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=329851

    -DefenseWall (if it ever comes out in 64 bit)

    -AppGuard


    The one's that went bad on me:

    -Ewido (lifetime license, bought by AVG... dumped us overboard..)
    For any former Ewido'ers... here's a thread for memory lane...
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=179073

    -SAS (became lame and useless)

    SpyShelter is a good one-time payment anti-keylogger + HIPS program.
