Security Shield
CA
Bit Defender
Kapersky
Zone Alarm
Norton?

Which one do you think is the best one to install? The one that doesnt slow your pc down or annoy you?

Kaspersky or Bitdefender.

I have Kaspersky at the moment and very happy with it.

The best Internet Security would probably be "norton" but imo, i hate norton.

- Too slow.
- Uses up too much CPU.
- Updates too slowly.
- Often out of date where new virus' are concerned.

Out of the list that you provided i would most probably say that "Kapersky or Zone Alarm" would be the top choices for Internet Security.

Seeing the same reviews over and over about norton, i guess he is out of the list.

About Zone Alarm, is it true that their service getting suckier now? Heard a lot of crashes since they update to vista one.

AVG,a router(a hard firewall),and responsible browsing. The first is free, the second is less than $50.00 and the third is just smart.

There is a company which tests the most common and known anti-virus products monthly.

Each month they give out an unbiased, free Anti-Virus comparison chart in which you can see which virus scanner is the most up-to-date and best in various area's and why.
See here.

Yeah, I forgot the anti-spyware apps, Ad-aware,and Spybot S&D are tops. As for the software firewall, nah, just stealth your ports , and disable your ping and your good to go.

I use Agnitum Outpost + XoftSpy XE + Trend Micro monthly online scanning (free) .

Works well enough, I think.

Vanhishikha, why would you even think that norton is any good? best lineup of security:

spybot
----->internet immunization
----->hosts file
----->TeaTimer

AVG

and if you want, a firewall.

that there is my defense and it has never let me down.

I have Zone Alarm Security Suite and yes, it is getting crappier. A while back they changed the UI to a crappier looking one and now there is a tendency for updates to freeze, slowing down the internet connection. I no longer recommend ZoneAlarm anymore which is a shame because it was such a good program. I'm currently looking for another security suite (one that isn't a bloated piece of crap like a Symantec or Mcafee product).
