Automatic choice for me on XP is ZoneAlarm Security Suite. It does all 3 and gives a confident feel about it too.
Now for a Web-browsing pc, that also handles miscelleneous file transfers for 4 pcs, simple copying back`n`fore, supplies mobile phone with sound files etc, and since it`s a Q6600 - I`m gonna let it do both the movie viewing to the HDTV and any conversion stuffs. It folds too, but that`s either way.
Now unfortunately the ZA on Vista trudges the system down quite alot, they obviously still have issues to sort out.
I`ve given ESET another try, it doesn`t do malware, it doesn`t give me that much confidence either, can`t explain it, but it`s a feeling. (for an example, randomly I`m getting a sound thing for ebay and something else when being on OC3D) And the firewall I have to disengage to do file transfers for 6mbs. With it I get about 3. (that`s will IPv6 disables and also the netsh auto- thingy). Infact I can`t get 20mbs unless I use XP.
Also have to disable it to send folding WUs. Don`t ask me why, but [email protected]
and a number of things I can allow access in the menus, but it still fudges up. Some of my rss things go screwy too.
What are the alternatives like ? Kasper ? I want a suite, 3 in 1 thing. Doesn`t slow Vista down any more than it is.
Either that or I`m gonna be weighing up XP again, which I`d rather not do for this machine cos it`s an unenviable enevitability.
I was thinking ZoneAlarm with the firewall disabled, I`m not that fussed on firewalling.
Meh opinions ? (and no stating the obvious OS issues, I gotta try and keep Vista on here)
