ive used alot, i remember @guard...

they change every year, if you keep up with their changes, youll see....

ive been with BitDefender, its average, good with games, GUI is easy, less problems, less frustration too.
my work gave out a copy of kapersky, its good, i rank it right with bitdfender. but with lower standards...

NOD32 is nice, but very very sensitive, not stop frustration trying to game with it, off or on.
good on a business pc, work...but for the average user, which does everything, its got issues



Trend Micro is ok

i use to use Zonealarm, but then i heard about the vulnerabilities, then i tested it, and i stopped using it, tru, all have security holes, didnt like ZA


....
i would just google some more...

for now i think BitDefender is good.nice GUI, easy GAME option..

I got Spybot and avg that i have automatically scan every night, then i shut their services off so it dont consume my resources, except i keep tea timer on. then i use nod32 every few days.

I used to use kaspersky, but i had to recently re-install this installation of windows after a nasty virus destroyed it (ended up fking up my tcp/ip protocols).



Enjoy your creative game-play, whatever that may include.

If your state-of-art system that is beyond what I built just over a year ago can't handle ZA which is probably the best firewall....then you have problems.

For AV I use two Corporate programs along with my IP blocker and 3 other protection systems and registry protection all at the same time and have NO PROBLEM seeding 4-10 torrents and playing Frontlines:FOW all at the same time.

yeah Z, but you grew your computer in your nice tomato field, while mine was full of clay and whatnot.
