    my two cents on the Internet security suite....

    USE KASPERSKY.... its the best i have ever used... it took me a whole week to crack it...

    honestly.. it was the only one who found and actually removed the "brontok" mass mailing worm completely from all of the boxes in my organisation's network.

    Hah! Micky,

    Kaspersky failed the latest Virus100 tests!

    I shouldn't worry about it though, it was something of a "comedy of errors" (slapstick humour) as they had a version of the sig. file and were not happy with the resource consumption of a particular entry (would N***on even care?) so they pulled it, and did not have the streamlined version of that single sig. until the day after. They sent the version without the signature to the test.

    So, they failed, but if they had used the previous day's version or the next day's one, they would have passed

    As this was just an internal version, their customers were never at risk.

    I believe that it is a good product, particularly for private users with possibly lower grade equipment. Norton and McAfee seem to be "circling the waggons" around their enterprise offerings and their home stuff seems to be very much poor relation of late?

    Cheers,

    For a lightweight AV solution I am sure that it is fine. If you have a home network and/or you want a "security suite" you would probably want to go for the paid for offering.

    Because it is actually a part of a larger security suite, you may face compatibility issues if you try to use it with other "free" offerings.

    in my opinion y use a readymade security suite when u could possibly make ur own. u could put together some top software. then u would definitely kno ur secure. personally i use avast, comodo firewall, and mcaffee site advisor. avast has really good detection rates and its residential scanner protects while ur online surfin the web. comodo has a really good traffic monitor, in going and out going on all ports. it'll let u know if anything seems even remotely suspicious, which can kind of get annoying from time to time. and mcaffee site advisor lets u know wut websites r good, okay, and just plain bad. so u dont go to those nasty third party websites. i havent gotten around to getting an adware or spyware blocker but avast seems to work for that too. and to top it all off. they're all free for life.

    now im no security expert but these seem to really work for me and they're easy on system resources too

    1. Simplicity
    2. Compatibility
    3. You are not a private home user
    4. Network support
    5. Update frequency
    6. Technical support

    I think those are the basic reasons that people buy security suites.
