Arrow Anti-virus/Security Center

I used to use a local security center from Cox Communications. I'm very unsatisfied with it. What is the best free security center I can get?

Yeah, I looked at the wrong section. I got that + the anti-malware. My dad had some information he wanted secure in here so I got them 3. I have just installed it and so far its looking good. I love the icon/design.

Avast is a very good program, I use it in combination with Zonealarm, and Spybot Search and Destroy. I realize you're asking for a one program security suite, but I highly recommend those three over anything else.

They can all be found on www.cnet.com

I run an antivirus sw on one laptop and it showed a "Virtumonde" product on it and trojan as the threat. Does anyone knows how to remove this thing on my laptop?

Thanks for any input.

I would have to agree. I used Avast in combination with ad-aware and spybot s&d with great success. Managed every infection, both viral and ad/spyware. (although I think adware se has gone downhill as they are looking to profit more) HiJack this is also a nice prog to have at your fingertips...although you definitely don't want to mess with it too much if you don't know what you're doing.
