There are so many Internet Security Suites out there. Does anyone have a good recommendation on a good one?
I was thinking about getting either Norton Internet Security 2010 for $19.99
or Bitdefender Total Security 2010 (also for $19.99)
They seem to have good reviews from what I've read. Are these good "security suites"? I'm mainly looking for an antivirus, firewall and spyware program.
Additionally, I considered free AVs, firewalls & spyware. The only reason I have reservations is because they're free! Are the paid for ones really safer/better than the free ones?
Another reason I didn't want to go the "3 free programs" route is because I'm afraid of having compatibility issues. Will the firewall from AlarmZone work properly with AVG, etc?
Also, will installing & having 3 separate programs run bog down my PC more than an all-in-one type security suite?
From my "research", I found the best bang for the buck to be either Norton or Bitdefender.
Now, when I say "research", I mainly googled internet security suite reviews and did some reading. Here are a few websites I read:
What are your opinions?
