    I don't want to start an A vs. B discussion by asking this, and I hope that the administrators don't see it as such.


    What free security products exist that include 'the whole sha-bang' (I.E, antivirus, firewall) all in one program?

    For example, Comodo Internet Security.

    There aren't too many other free security suites that I can think of, but there are lots of free AV and free FW separates!

    ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall, Outpost Security Suite Free, and Roboscan IS are 3 that I can think of.

    I would avoid a free all-in-one suite, they all suck, especially Comodo AV, I do not think, that there is a worse AV than that. CIS relies on its strong HIPS and a firewall.
    Most free security software is quite good, even better than paid, but they all want to make all-in-one, so they put something bad besides their great product and it fails.

    Which is good because it means you can combine it with another FW.

    If you want a proper internet security, Comodo IS is currently the only decent option imo.

    Comodo IS is the only free full suite up there with the best paid ones.

    No. You can install it to check it out.

    Your post in regard to the comodo AV is both without any facts and pointless.

    Indeed, I have mistaken some info about it, I have just re-checked it. Anyway I would rather instal Cryptolocker into my PC than anything from Comodo.
