Windows firewall is sufficient for firewall and use Microsoft Security Essentials for antivirus.

malwarebytes isn't worth using for free even though :/

couldn't even handle simple malware and didn't even blink an eye at other more serious ones when I was testing it out yesterday

Are you serious? It's a decent scanner. It obviously won't find everything as no single scanner can.

If you do decide to renew, i'd only get the av part or just get a free one like maybe avast or mse. The weakest link in security is and always will be... The user. No security app can protect against a user's foolishness/behavior.

I actually just moved over from webroot. Not that it had any inherent problems but just wanted something different.

Check out VB100 testing - http://www.virusbtn.com/vb100/index
You can get an idea of how different AV are doing, and recent tests to see trending (succeeding/failing protection)

Current chart - http://www.virusbtn....mparative/index

Looks like a paid product called coranti doing the best.
Despite Coranti looking to be one of the best products in testing... they going out of business.

Avira Free is also doing very well

well this was one that EVERY other one found and wasn't brand new or hard to detect and should have been found by it. Hence simple.

That's strange because I used the exact same link to buy a subscription for myself before I posted it here :huh:

I've tried it just now and it's working. Try a couple times as it may be getting hammered, 13c for a year's worth of subscription for a top tier security solution like that is a steal.
