    Could anyone please list some combo of software that provides the best protection against any threats like viruses, trojans etc (without any firewalls) in a freeware and normal version ?

    LukaszJ, since your post has nothing to do with firewalls I have moved it to the other antivirus software forum

    I use NOD32 and Trojan Hunter, works well for me.
    Since you can get a good firewall free, why not take advantage of the offer.
    Zone Alarm free is a great firewall.

    Well I could tell you what I use but I would really be repeating myself and you could do a search of my posts and get that information...and your question was the best combo sorry can not help you there.

    Let me give you this bit of advice, use both a trojan killer and a virus protection and firewall. This should be standard machine protection. Do not rely on AV for trojan protection alone. Spybot SD also a good addition. My 2 cents worth. ;)

    Sorry, I just could not control myself I use BoClean as my trojan killer :oops: :D

    :eek: Hellow, imho best of all spyware removers is SpyHunter, but thats only my oppinion, used stuff like ad-aware and BPS remover, didnt work as good, for antivirus its your call, but norton works ok for me. :cool:

    It would be easier if you told us what security programs you already use, then we could help tighten up even more if applicable.

    You are kidding, right? ;) :D


    This is what works really well for me, very simple to use and maintain.

    You may want to take a look here for further discussion on security and how to make your system that much stronger and here for more.

    Hope this helps...

    Let us know how you go.

    Cheers :D

    spyhunter is on the rogue list of antispyware suite. so it is up to you what you do with it.


    I use NOD32 together with ewido on access and giant, backuped by tds-3, TH, processguard, adaware, spybot.

    nod32 together with a good antitrojan (tds, boclean or ewido) is allways a winner. if you wanna save money I guess Boclean/tds is the one to go for.

    cheers

    I suggest this active protection:

    Paid version:
    Process Guard FULL + Outpost Firewall Pro + NOD32 + ewido security suite plus + Microsoft AntiSpyware* + Ad Muncher

    Free version:
    Process Guard FREE + Sygate Personal Firewall + avast! Home Edition + Microsoft AntiSpyware*

    Anothers that you must have (all free):
    - WinPatrol FREE or PLUS (until the final version of Microsoft AntiSpyware isn't finished)
    - ewido security suite (only in the free version)
    - Spybot - Search & Destroy
    - Ad-Aware SE Personal
    - SpywareGuard
    - Host Manager
    - IE-SPYAD
    - HijackThis

    * When the final version will be ready...

    My configuration is NOD32 + BOclean, with ewido and TDS3 as backup on-demand scanners, for regular scans and for when I have a suspicious file that NOD32 doesn't pick up (admittedly quite rare), and I am too cautious to experiment with BOclean's capability of detecting it.

    Just a question here. What kind $$$ are you dropping a year for your security? :eek: Better yet, Where are you going that would warrant that kind of security? Im just curious. o_O Seems like a over kill to me. Who knows? Maybe I'm wrong.

    Well, I have a lifetime subscription to my Outpost firewall, a lifetime (at least until 4.0 comes out) subscription for ewido since I bought it before they introduced a pay-per-year system, TDS3 has free updates at least until they change their policy, and BOclean has free updates for life as well. So NOD32 is the only thing I need to resubscribe to :)

    I aquired all of these programs legitimately over time and hey, I've got money to burn and security is a hobby of mine ;)

    Oh yeah, and my arsenal is nothing compared to some of the more senior members in this community *puppy*
