« on: July 08, 2011, 07:35:50 PM »
So its never got mentioned then there you got.

What combo (anti-virus, plugins, firewall, anti-spam, anti-spyware, anti-malware....) you use on all of your computer.

Here my best combo that i like much : Avira Personal 10, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Windows Defender Disabled, PC Tools Firewall Plus, Firefox Plugins > ABP (AdBlock Plus)

lol Yes i like both Avira and avast! you can replace it for avast! if u want.

Avira is going in a red way with his toolbar but it isnt that dangerous or can explode your computer or it isnt built in it is to the user choice. ;D

Of course there's something avira users can do, dont use it  ;D.

Better stop filling up your thread with Avira trash talk anyway  ;)

Well some dont care and install it. Otherway the Guard is on and will scan everything going on even from the Web. That Web Guard is like a MyWOT i think but without reputation and icon when you surf.

Sorry but to me this is another useless question.
A simple search would tell you what most of us use and it certainly
isn't Avira.  :(

If the OP likes Avira, what's he doing on the avast! forum?
Why should I use Avira when I have the best (IMO) anti-virus? avast rocks! Period!
Dell Inspiron, Win10x64--HP Envy Win10x64--Both systems Avast Free v17.9.2322, Comodo Firewall v8.2 w/D+, MalwareBytes v3.0, OpenDNS, Super Anti-Spyware, Spyware Blaster, MCShield, Unchecky, Vivaldi Browser and, various browser security tools.

Couldn't agree more, the question really is pointless.

Then it is followed by the insult of saying you like an other AV most in the official avast forum, which is paid for by Avast Software. Sorry but that really is taking the pi**, given the amount of whining you do in these forums and the amount of prompt support response you have had in these forums. I somehow doubt that it would be the same on the avira forum.

If you like avira so much, take yourself off to the avira forums and try posting this, reversing the choice of AV and watch the blood boil.

This is especially bad when the person making such a comment is an Evangelist.... :'( :'(

People, not that much problem that anyone uses Avira.
I won't... Bad updates schemes, popups (in old versions), now the Ask.Toolbar, features removed from the free version and kept only in the Pro...

I'm on Comodo forums with a signature that says I'm using avast Internet Security since from the beginning :)
The best things in life are free.

Mr.Agent

I recently installed Malwarebytes to go along with Avast! internet ....and found it gives me far to many false positives the first time I used it it gave me 12 false positive for files that I know are good and had in my computer for a couple of years no other Malware& antivirus software I used ever gave me warnings with these files. Glad was given 30 day free trial with it will uninstall it and perhaps give AD-Ware a try heard good things about that program. 8)

I wouldn't give hard disk space to adaware. It might have been good a few years ago, but I don't believe it hasn't kept pace with malware developments.
