Norton Security Scan cannot remove anything, and the Google Pack version is gone.

THATS A REALLY LONG LIST!

a suggestion:

most users, like me, would not be able to draw benefit from this great list for lack of time. So i would recommend that you take a category, decide the best one, and post it here so that one can try it.

thanks

"The products for each category are listed with the best free products first (non-free products are always at the bottom of each category), as judged by me. My current choices for real-time protection on my XP desktop and Vista laptop have been marked with ►. Other noteworthy products used by me have been marked with ♦, and my favourite malware detection/removal tools with ⇒."

It is the extensive list, which makes this article popular, worthy and unique.. there is no question of shortening it :D.

may be we should add for Anti-phishing/malware browser plugins: http://www.webutation.org - seems to be promising!?

What do you think?

by ako on 4. June 2010 - 11:47  (51039)

Seems good :) Thanks! Added.

by MidnightCowboy on 4. June 2010 - 12:23  (51046)

Is this still in closed beta or has it been released yet?

by ako on 4. June 2010 - 12:56  (51064)

soon released

Hi Ako, I have been following this list since it was started, it has been a priceless asset to me.

NortonDNS is in beta http://nortondns.com and from my experience with it, it blocks 7/10 websites on MDL (for me at least). Seems to be just as fast as any other DNS.

Cheers mate! Si vis pacem, para bellum.

by ako on 4. June 2010 - 19:41  (51281)

Thanks pal! I'll add this good hint to the list. I'm happy to hear you've found this list worth using.

Si vis pacem, para bellum! :-)

Off the wall idea, how about a section of anti-virus/malware/cloud programs that can run alongside a main antivirus? Immunet for example. Would take some time to dig up those than can do such a thing, but heck, just an idea.

Cheers mate!

by Anonymous on 10. June 2010 - 4:18  (51796)

Not a bad idea. I'll think about it :)

Thanks!

by ako on 10. June 2010 - 7:23  (51809)

I added "Anti-malware (Can be run alongside with an AV):" :-)

by ako on 10. June 2010 - 10:21  (51817)

I moved Clamwin Antivirus there, as it works with other AV. Any other?

by J_L on 11. June 2010 - 2:25  (51879)
by ako on 11. June 2010 - 7:19  (51892)

:-) another good hint!

Thanks!!!! :D

A-squared Free does not seem to be available on the Emsisoft website anymore. The download link redirects to Emsisoft Anti-Malware 5, which does have a restricted free license, but is bloated nonetheless.

OperaTor changed to "Operator". The new version lacks Tor/anonymity. It's now just a portable Opera browser.

It is now Emergency...something. I'll check this.

by AlanMcAlan on 13. June 2010 - 19:12  (52037)

Under Browser Tests > Browser security (java). It seems that Jason no longer hosts the Browser Security test, thus the link is broken.

Cheers mate!

http://www.comodo.com/home/internet-security/disk-encryption.php
Comodo Disk Encryption

Not sure what section it would fit in, it does a little of both I think.

by ako on 13. June 2010 - 20:49  (52045)

Thanks!

I made new title: disk encryption

by Anonymous on 14. June 2010 - 0:07  (52060)

Oh, as far as I know, Comodo Encryption can make virtual drives as well!

Cheers!
