Ultimate Predator Posted May 2, 2013 Share Posted May 2, 2013 Hi people, Its once again been quite a while since I've last bene here, I've been using lubuntu for so long that I've forgotten a lot of what is the best sofware for windows security. I'm fixing up my girlfriend's laptop at the moment (Windows 7). Her norton ran out, and wa slooking on here to find out what the best (free) antivirus is. I was expecting to see avast - but under the anti-malware toolkit form lunarsoft, it gives the options for avast or avira. And reading topics relating to anti-virus software, Tarun mentions Microsoft Security Essentials, and I've heard some people complain that avast isn't particularly good anymore? I've put on Microsoft Security Essentials for now, but would like to hear if I should install something else. Also noticed that under the AntiMalware Toolkit the afore mentioned Microsoft Security Essentials isn't added, and nor is Spybot; seach and destroy. How come? What is the bets anti-spyware sofware to use? Currently my girlfriends laptop just has Microsoft Security Essentials and Spyware Blaster for now. Would like to hear your thoughts on what else could be needed. Many thanks, and I'll try and do a hijackthis log soon (assumign it works for windows 7).
