"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

That list is the consumer stuff. The best ones are ok.

I use commercial Anti Virus. In my case, Symantec Endpoint Protection (which is NOT Norton). Kasperky and others have commercial counterparts.

For a consumer, the good ones off this list are good.

Anti Virus will pick up a email with a virus. But lots of spam does not contain viruses in the email, but the text (hypertext) link to a web site may be to a dodgy website. Anti Virus does not stop "just" spam with no virus in the email.

For spam, you need an email supplier with excellent spam control. I use Mail.com and their spam control is very effective.

How do you know if your security is working?

Protecting your business doesn’t have to mean sifting through endless alerts and notifications. With WatchGuard Total Security Suite, you can feel confident that your business is secure, meaning you can get back to the things that have been sitting on your to-do list.

Anything is better than nothing. On a given day no anti-virus will catch everything. Run as a standard user rather than an administrator, use the administrator account only when required.  If you follow unsafe computing practices then nothing will help you.  Prevention is the key cleaning after the fact is something that works in a majority of cases but not in all.  Malware Bytes in combination with any anti-virus will protect you in many cases.. You should also install the anti-ransomware toolkit.
