What is the best security for your computer?

I currently have Norton 360. I have heard its not that great. Is there a different or better one out there? For basically everything Norton offers, as well anything else I may need for security on my computer.

    I’m using Microsoft Security Essentials. It seems to be working great for me. You can download it for free (legally) from Microsoft’s website. If you paid for Norton and it didn’t just come with your computer, I’d continue to use Norton. They both work well.

    Norton of course has been a world leader as antivirus. I don’t know that their antispyware is rated as tops yet. Your first “layer of defense” is to indeed have Real Time Protection products in place to block infection. You have one of the best.

    The second layer is to download a couple “stand alone” scanners as free home versions available from reputible companies and of course there are even other like browser plug ins and other utilities to adventure.

    Here are a couple great “back up’ or additional products to use as stand alone (no Real Time Protection, activated in paid subscription) products….

    Ad-Aware http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/
    ClamWin Free Antivirus http://www.clamwin.com/

    You can add this….
    Windows OneCare Antivirus is now Free from Microsoft and very highly rated, West Coast Labs Certified and has won the VB100 Award ! Now called Microsoft Essentials…..

    BUT TURN OFF THE REAL TIME PROTECTION and you will have to manually update it. You can NOT run two antivirus or antispyware programs that have Real Time Protection activated as Microsoft Essentials does have like paid subscription antivirus that you now have installed and running. This can cause corruption of the products possibly, but may severly downgrade system performance.
