Avira Prenium Security Suite THE BEST!


Recommended Posts

Hi,

After testing several AntiVirus/Firewall Security suites for Windows 7

Kasperspy Internet Security 2010 ***

Zonealarm Internet Security 2010 ****

Norton Internet Security 2010 **

Avira Prenium Security Suite 9 *****

ESET Smart Security 4.0.487 *****

Have come to an conclusion that the best security suite out their at moment is Avira Premium Security Suite 9, unlike other security suites it's very fast and effective. As an added bonus it also has anti bot protection, which is very important

I was actually disappointed with kasperspy internet security 2010, it really slows down the system and sometimes makes it unuable.

The second BEST out their has to be ESET Smart Security, which also hass a very low memory frontprinttt

My advice give Avira Prenium Security Suite 9 here and ESET Smart Security here a try you will be suprised!

Let me know what you think?

Having tested KIS 2010, AVG and ESET Smart Security (latest versions) myself I can say that all of them offer almost the same security and features.

However, I choose KIS 2010 because for me It has the least false positives and it offers the grater amount of information of processes, resources, connections of the whole bunch. And I mean, by far the biggest amount.

It is much a matter of taste and personal experience. I have been using KIS 2010 with Windows 7 since the RC stage and now with the RTM without any problems. And I have it installed in 7 computers.

I keep hearing a lot of praise about Norton 2010 versions but I don't have the time or resources now to test them.

Personal experiences indicate that anything is better than a resource hogging Norton product.

Lol Typo

Honestly, give Avira a try you will be suprised!

Although MSE is free it does a decent job is PRotecting your from Viruses/Malware. One major disadvantage is theirs no firewall built into the software.

I use the free version of Avira along with the default Vista firewall. I find this combination a great solution for anyone with a bit of common sense when using the internet.

I have no trust in Windows Firewall, however will try zonealarm free firewall combined with Avira

See if that combination works well

No Anti Virus beats a bit of common sense.

But yeah, that's the combo I use.

I notice you only rate the paid programs as though they only have value if you pay to have your system bloated.

Have put Avast free home on over a hundred machines and never had a single reported infection. You just put it on, run the offered boot scan, then forget about it since nothing can get in unless you turn it off or live fulltime in pornland.

Avast + Windows Firewall + Windows Defender = no infection ever!

More importantly, it is featherlight and has nearly zero impact on system resources. Just disable the extra recovery database icon it first installs and merge with the main Avast icon and you have no CPU or RAM hit at all.

Norton is one of the worst infections a computer can have, and the other paid bloats are not far behind. If you're lucky enough to get all of Norton out with their removal tool and fifteen other checks, you'll still wonder what you could have recoverd by a clean reinstall. I will usually do one for friends and family who don't say "I thought you only get what you pay for." You should be paid for being a net for the bugcatchers, and Avast knows that.

Did you try MSE out?

Windows 7 firewall + MSE + routerfirewall ( + common sense as one said earlier) = low memory footprint + CPU time = no need for 3rd party software ;D

You clearly have not yet used Norton 2009 or 2010. If you've, then that is contrary to what everyone here who has used it or currently uses it, including all the reviewers who have tested it, who will strongly support me when I say that Norton since 2009, isn't a resource hog product anymore. In fact, it is one of the lightest AV product out there

I think Avira is good also but what tests did you do mulkman? Its not really good to present your conclusion without telling us what types of test you were doing.

Not really any tests but for the firewall, mainly the tests were carried out online

Check this site: http://www.pcflank.com/

All security suites were also tested for stability and speed

I can't believe nobody has mentioned COMODO Internet Security. In my opinion it's the best one. I can't say anything about Avira Premium SS, i have used Avira Free Edition and i think its great, but COMODO beats them all and it's gratis for personal use.

That's what I'm currently using too. Any idea if the MSE does registry scans too?

Avira was good until it started to give me a false positive. Even though I pressed "ignore (remember this)" the same thing kept popping up every 10 minutes, kicking me out of any full screen app I was in.

Needless to say, it was un-installed. I now run MSE and will never look back.
