Antivirus - Choose between Avast & AVG.

I recommend Avast because AVG has heuristics that detects many legitimate items as malware. It has also blocked some websites and mark them as a 'phising site' even though they are not and even after adding them to a exclusion list (tested by me). I remember once when it detected it's files as a virus! LMBO or ROFL

Ok, so why Avast? Because it disinfects viruses instead of deleting them. It's heuristics are also good and I have never came across a false positive.


Firewall - Zonealarm or Comodo Firewall. I recommend Comodo because it's light on the system.


Anti spyware - Spybot or Superantispyware. I recommend SuperAntiSpyware.
