Hey all! I know i'm probably the only person to ask this question (obvious LoL) but, can anybody offer some solid advice on some seriously up-to-date effective antivirus/firewall solutions for the home user like me? I spend alot of time on the internet, and have had no infections or incidents since installing Trend Micro's PC-cillin Internet Security 2007 a year ago. However, its now time to renew my subscription, and there where in fact some things i didn't like about Trend Micro. And here they are:
1. Seems like it takes FOREVER to load at startup.
2. Updates very frequently, which i appreciate, but it's nearly impossible to use the internet for anything else while its updating.
3. Not sure if the Personal Wireless Network Monitor feature does what i thought it would.
4. Not sure if i renew will i get the 2008 version.
There are quite a lot of things i like about Trend Micro, namely that i haven't had one incident since installing it a year ago. But, i figured this might be a good time to do a little researching before i commit myself to another year.
I've heard a few good things about CA Internet Security Suite Plus 2008 and The Shield Deluxe 2008, but am not familiar at all with either one.
I know this is a question that gets beat to death here at EE, but i didn't have much luck when i tried to search for possible solutions prior to asking.
Anyhoot, thanks all!
