Security solution for me

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I wanted to know what you guys would recommend for protection. I currently run MSE and thats it... nothing else. Do I need to also get malwarebytes plus other stuff, should I keep MSE? I don't know to much about security. >.<<br />
Thanks!

MSE is probably my favorite antivirus, because its super light weight and I barely notice it's there. I've been using it for about three years now and never had a problem. I think it's definitely fine for people like us who frequent Overclock.net, because with just a small amount of knowledge when it comes to computer related matters, the majority of the threat to security disappears -- user stupidity. smile.gif

For webpages I use adblock plus ... it is 1 of the greatest addons for firefox (I am using waterfox) that has ever been made ... ... ok maybe not the best but definitely worth the download ...

As for anti-virus ... I have been using Nod32 and Smart Security for 2 if not 3 years and it works fantastic ... never had any problems ...

If people ask me for a free anti-virus I always go with Avast ... Not sure if it is still the best free AV but it is amongst the best

avast has issues with steam, which may be a problem for a good amount of users. MSE and Malwarebytes is all you need for 99% of the people out there. using browser addons like AdBlock and NoScript is just icing on the cake. the cake of security.
