Default Re: AV and Firewall

Oh, basically the same thing, just different process. I'll DL Avira... but I need a secondary one.

Spyware
Webroot Spysweeper v. SunServer CounterSpy

Antivirus (Is Clam AV any good? It's free...)
McAffee v. Avast v. Nod32 v. Norton v. BitComet Defender (CHECK IT OUT)

What are your opinions on the remaining AV's, especially Clam and BitComet? I'm also wanting some opinions on the Anti-Spyware stuff I have listed.

Well use Nod32 as a backup. But its not reccomended that you have two Anit Viruses, because they tend to interfere with each other.

I had that happen to me with Avira and AVG they were just being weird, but it was totally fine when I had only Avira. I never liked AVG much anyways.

Wait... about your first comment, isn't that software firewalls? Not AV's...

I had AVG and Norton with no conflicts.

What?

I dont remember saying that but whatever. Either way, what I think now, dont have two Anti Viruses and its okay to have more then one firewall.

Antivir doubles as a farwall too with its "Guard". So zonealarm pro with Anti Vir, and you wont have any problems. And if you do, change it up bit, but you wont

I think it was in your first post concerning avira. And you know, just in case avira doesn't work out... another option would be appreciated.

Strange that no one else has posted here.... o.O
