    You wouldn’t like it. The best ever security is to NEVER have any files come in from the outside, what is called a closed system.

    As to the best anti virus for normal day to day use, nod 32 or Kaspersky. Add to that a good firewall and maybe even malwarebytes and you are as safe as you can get software wise. After that its up to you to not do anything that will compromise your system.

    The best security system for a computer is definitely not norton. Yes it is fairly good, but the scanning takes ages, it eats up way to much space, and asks you for permission to allow or deny pretty much everything. So if you’re looking for a good one, you might want to check ouf avg or McAfee. Beware when downloading software off the Internet, make sure you are on their official site. There are many fake programs. Also for avg, you should probably get a paid version.

    In it’s ‘out-of-the-box’ condition, MS Windows bristles with security problems and bad configurations that average users are unaware of…that’s why it requires endless “updates”.
    [Persistent MS “Policy” has put functionality & flexibility ahead of security]

    Your fundamental posture should be PREVENTION: achieved with a layered defense.
    You paid for the computer; it’s yours, and nothing should be able to enter it without your informed consent.

    Securing Windows systems from Internet predation & assault is not a single application, or a suite: and it’s not a “1 click does every fix” that so many want…it ain’t going to happen peeps.

    It’s layers of protection, user habits, system configuration, real time protection; and most important, threat matrix awareness (because the internet is so fluid and dynamic, it changes almost hourly) and user flexibility to deal with those new threats.
    (Check for fairly current threats here: http://blogs.pcmag.com/securitywatch/top_threat/
    “Do-it-all” suites (McAfee, or Norton, etc.) give users ‘feel good’ security, and lull them into complacency, which often has bad results.

    Core defense applications might include (but not limited to):
    Avast! (anti-virus); http://www.avast.com/eng/home-registration.php
    or Microsoft’s “Essentials” home version (freeware; 3 versions):

    Always incorporate a stout firewall: A partial list of available freeware is here:
    Look them over and decide which serves your needs and skill level.

    Firefox, with ‘NoScript’ add-on; “locked down” settings; and set as default browser is your BEST single defence layer.
    All Microsoft installed rubbish (hacks) MUST be disabled; look in Tools> Add on’s> Extensions & Plug-in’s.

    SpywareBlaster (snoopware prevention and hostfile guardian); http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html

    Use a “Limited User” account and “Sandboxie”: http://www.sandboxie.com/
    for even better protection.

    If you don’t have time, skill or desire to do all this, plus ‘updating’ everything, have a look @ “Secunia”: checks all your 3rd party & OS for version updates, plus gives your system a rating (in %) of defense readiness…pretty handy, but a bit glitchy on Win7.

    Most novice users do not like hearing this, but nonetheless, it’s true: using Windows requires you to become a security expert, it’s that simple.
    Making all these changes seems overwhelming, and it is a pain in the keester; BUT IT MUST BE DONE.
    Windows has been ‘oversold’ to the general public, and is badly broken on many levels.
    Something they conveniently omit telling you when you buy this system…
