Default What is your security package ?

Mine is shown in my signature. All free, never spent a cent on it and have never had an infection that has not been either killed or cured. Last infection ? Months ago. Massive improvement since installing Sandboxie 3 months ago.

Added to the primary online programs, I have several popular stand-alone programs that I use almost daily : MalwareBytes-AM Free, A-Squared Emergency Kit Free, MS Malicious Software Removal Tool and several cleaning programs.

You have Massive amounts of AV Software, do you really feel it's necessary?

Wowzas everyday? I just scan when my AV software does it automatically each week.

I use to use ZoneAlarm and AVG free, and some viruses and trojans managed to slip through so I removed both of them and installed Comodo internet security in order to remove the viruses/trojans, that didn't do anything so I installed kaspersky internet security and activated the trial and it removed the viruses. Guess i'm sticking with this

I've been using Eset Smart Security for a long time now. It's the best security suite software in my opinion. I also use MalwareBytes as a secondary scanner every now and then.

Malwarebytes for quick scans here and there, Kaspersky on my macs and Avast on VMs, bootcamp and on customer PCs

I've been using ZenOK Free Antivirus, so far very good software, something that I really like is it has the whole package (Antispyware, Anti-spyware, P2P Shield, Ultra-light scanning, among others)
