    Evening all, can anyone recommend a decent internet security suite, i dont mind having to pay for one but obviously a free one would be a bonus. I've been using AVG pro which was acquired from dubious source and now the licence has been blocked.

    Cheers, Dave.

    I use AVG at home, and use Mozilla Firefox as my browser. At work, I have NOD32 which is very good, but you need to pay for that.

    Forget paying suites, I now use Microsoft Security Essentials, works well & best of all its Free.

    AVG has its quirks like updating is one & sometimes has issues, but so far MS hasnt faulted once & I advise my clients to use it tbh as I always test any new suite to see its worth.

    MS doesnt hug memory/cpu & tbh the install routine & space is so easy/minimal you'll forget its even running, its caught a number of issues out & no infections etc so far.

    I've got the MS one. I used to public test it too, was always good and doesnt bog down windows like the others do. I had kapersky when i was on the W7 public beta and it was getting very sluggish. Recommend MS security essentials. http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

    Kaspersky is good, i have run this for 2 years and i've been very happy with it. £17 from tesco's i think - cheaper than the official website.

    In the past i have used:
    NOD32 - Good
    AVG - Rubbish
    Mcafee - ok, but not to my liking.
    Trend - Good
