AV and Firewall Combo

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well guys, I wanted to get some advice from some other people. I am kinda getting tired of my AV and was looking for advice and ratings on others. I want top of the line stuff that doesnt drag ur system and its resources. Currently im using Bitdefender AV v9 Professional and im using Outpost Firewall Pro. Now I love my firewall so I dont think im going to be steering away from it. But well see what you guys have to say, thanks in advance.

I second ENTERPRISE1701's post. I have used both as a combo for a good time now and haven't encountered any problems. The best part about them is that niether use alot of system resources.

I had AVG free but ended up getting a virus that it couldnt remove. Ended up using a relatives copy of Norton AV Enterprise, putting the server manager on my server and putting the clients on my Laptop and 2 desktops and it manages it for me now. Pretty nice, but definitely not free.

For a firewall, just using my router and Windows firewall. Def. not the most protected network.
