best internet security app

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
looking for the best all in one internet security app (firewall, spam filter, anti-virus, etc) that runs on vista64 or xp64 but its also lightweight and won't use half the resources just sitting there (i.e. norton or mcafee).
doesn't have to be free.

I believe Kaspersky supports both XP and Vista 64bit. I currently have it running on XP Home 32 bit with an fx-60+2 gig ram, and the only hit I've seen is the boot time. Everything else runs smooth incl. games/web browser etc.

Have a look around Start64 for some more info on compatible security software and more

I use kapersky on vista64, however it is not very noob friendly, it requires that the person using it knows a lot about whats running on their computer. I know it constantly gives me warnings about driver updates because it thinks they are p2p worms, and to someone who is not a computer whiz you could end up disabling a lot of functionality on their pc.

NOD32... It is written in assembly, making it extremely efficient. It is also the best 0-day virus detector on the market. In a test of unknown virus's (not in the database), NOD32 was the only anti-virus on the market that scores over a 20% detection rate. It got 68% detection while all other anti-virus was under 20%!

It also scan files 5x faster than Norton.

Using a whopping 3260KB on my computer...
