Here in Finland the support works pretty well. Pity if it sucks elsewhere.

The new IS 2010/CS 9 version seems really good. Its light, silent, and supposedly very strong (very good virus fingerprints (bitdefender+its own), good heuristics (bitdefender+its own), exellent behaviour blocker (Deepguard), in-the-cloud component (ultra-fast response to new threats) and exploit shield).

It is really a high-end product (but expensive). I'm lucky to get it for free.

Thanks for the input - your own summary matches my own thoughts exactly.
I might make more of an effort to cultivate a meaningful relationship with these folks to see if anything useful can be sorted for here

Good move MC. We've got nothing to loose except a bit of your time. I hear your rates are pretty cheap here.

See the image. What do you think of the logic?

Seems cool enough to me. I just wish the F-Secure guys would sort out browser support for at least one more alternative to IE and FF. I know this is enough choice for a lot of people but unfortunately I'm not one of them

I'm currently trying another commercial. Folks keep sending me keys for stuff because they like WOT I write God knows why because I don't even like a lot of it myself Still, if any of it rubs off into free offers for things people want then great. So far, apart from F-Secure and Bullguard all of the other commercial big guns I've tried just make me appreciate the freeware alternatives even more. I suppose if I wanted 3D revolving windows, a world opinion overview on what programs I'd installed and a 2 page report every time something connected to the internet than I'd love Norton to bits! Otherwise I'd rather keep the extra half of my memory it used for running other things.

Well sometimes I overdue things and my pc security is no exception. I have my pc loaded up with security apps right now. I am using Win7 firewall and Prevx.

Oh yeah, forgot to mention MBAM on demand, but I never find anything.

1.)Norton av
2.)Shadow Defender
3.)Sandboxie
4.)Comodo ( only the firewall component )
5.)Autorun Manager ( OSAM )
6.)AnVir Task Manager
7.)Malwarebytes'

5.),6.),7.) are mostly switched off though.
This is the lightest protection I have tried so far and still doing a hell of a job.
