I use AVG Free in combination with MalwareBytes and I have been virus free for quite sometime now. I remember my days of using Norton being extremely aggravating especially when I decided to switch up and Norton Antivirus would not uninstall properly. I had to get their removal tool to annihilate the software from my system.
The main reason I wanted to uninstall was because the version I was using ate up a major amount of my system resources.
"I have the power!!"
Norton is much better than it used to be as far as system resources are concerned. But the majority stock holders are a Chinese company. I don't see how this can protect a user from data being stolen from major corporations servers such as in Sony's case. What I would like to see is companies to stop saving credit card information. Amazon.com for example every time you use your card it saves the information for easy use on your next purchase and there is no way to opt-out other then deleting the card from the account each time. The purchase should be made and card number purged.
Nice to see the announcement regarding the software suite. Some of us prefer to use others like Avast Free Edition and Malware bytes. I also use Commodo with Firewall only. & have recommended this type of combination for others as well.
I think that companies like Amazon that save personal credit card info these days should have the option to opt out from having that info stored for future convenience.Seems that this choice from Amazon and possibly others could save a bit of the 'merry-go-round' that been happening lately and likely to happen again sometime in the future.

I personally run Comodo, and use updated Spybot S&D for the start up and background blocks. I also clean regularly as well as check the registry and modify when needed. As far as an antivirus goes there is not a lot more you could ask for than what Comodo offers with DNS custom, recorded, and specific setting, network traffic monitors, spyware blocking and monitoring of its own, and for free etc etc.
newegg is the same way, this bugs me especially with those false https/security badges that find there way onto sites.

did they develop this themselves or is this rehashed IP?
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
I use Avast Free and Malwarebytes Free. Btw, anyone know whether this will be customer-exclusive or not? Also, do you think that Comcast could really come out with something good enough to compete with those services already out there?
thank god, i would not trust my computer with comcast r&d - not that i'd use this anyway
