  1. Independent testing group AV-Comparatives has released its 2014 Internet Security Survey. The survey asked 5,845 users from around the world their views on security and reveals that when it comes to antivirus protection Americans like to get it for free whilst Europeans prefer to pay. The four regions covered in the results are Europe, North America, Central/South America, and Asia. Worldwide just over half of users pay for a security solution but only in Europe are paid security products more popular. Free solutions win in North America and Asia and -- by a narrow margin -- in Central/South America. Avast is the product of choice for both mobiles and PCs in most regions, but with Asia preferring Quihoo 360. View the full article
  2. Microsoft has admitted Windows users should install antivirus above and beyond its own Security Essentials, describing its protection as merely a "baseline" that will "always be on the bottom" of antivirus software rankings. Microsoft launched Security Essentials in 2009, raising complaints from antivirus rivals that such software shouldn't be bundled with Windows for competition reasons. However, the most frequent complaint about Security Essentials is that it's not good enough: it flunked a pair of tests earlier this year - including one from Dennis Technology Labs. Now, Microsoft has said it sees Security Essentials as merely the first layer of protection, advising customers to use additional, third-party antivirus - although the company stressed that wasn't because the product wasn't good enough to stand on its own.

  3. Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware is a full-blown anti-malware program that has recently left the labs and can be considered the next step in the detection and removal of malware. Malwarebytes Team put together a host of new technologies that were specially designed to quickly detect, deter and destroy any malware that could reside in your computer. Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware monitors every process and actually stops malicious processes before they even start. It uses an impressive technology that is in fact a completely novel way of heuristic scanning and it is the teams response to the increasingly complex malware threats. And, as they did with Malwarebytes' RogueRemover we also have added a threats center. You can simply check online which pests are removed the most and thus are the most prevalent.

  5. I don't use any antivirus software myself because these days I use Linux, and even back when I used Windows I managed to get by without any antivirus software (not to be attempted by lusers, noobs and mortals) due to being computer literate and security conscious. However, I would like to know about antivirus software for when computer illiterate friends and relatives ask. It is difficult to pick antivirus software because there are many variables to take into account, such as detection rate, false positive rate, resource usage, price, etc. Commercial antivirus software are made to appeal to the broad masses of end-users, and on a subscription-bases business model the end-users needs to be reminded and hence the software is often very obtrusive and invasive, plastering itself all over the system; start menu, desktop, quicklaunch, quicksearch, toolbars, control panel, browser, extensions, everywhere. People like to know they're getting something for what they're paying, if the software stays out of the way and they don't notice it - they don't want to pay for it. Many antivirus companies are making an income based on fearmongering and seem about as shady as the people/companies writing malware. Antivirus software are often huge, bloated, slow, invasive, obtrusive resource hogs and sometimes ironically are more difficult to uninstall (get rid of) than viruses. With antivirus softare the cure is often worse than the disease. Many of the software suffer from the kitchen sink approach, where there are "security suits" that force upon me anti-malware, anti-spyware, anti-rootkit, anti-keylogger, spamfilter, sandbox, intrustion-detection system, firewall, etc. Tons of stuff besides the antivirus that I never wanted or would like to get from another provider. The question seems not to be 'which antivirus software is the best?' but rather 'which antivirus software sucks the least?'.
  6. Is the new Avast Free/Home Edition still the recommended anti-virus? I ask as when you Compare products, Lets you safely browse suspicious websites or applications, isn't ticked; http://www.avast.com...s-download#tab3 But I thought that was the whole point of having a real-time anti-virus, that si it stops viruses getting into your system from any area. And whats the take on it having a real-time anti-spyware included? Is it good? If so, is there any need to have Windows Defender running? Whilst I'm here, am I right in saying that when installing Comodo, it should be firewall only, and no anti-virus? Then anti-virus should be Avast. I'd like to think as mentioned above that Avats would take care of both viruses and spyware. Cheers.
