I am currently using CA Security Center on a Windows Vista machine. I have the Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, and Anti-Spam loaded. I left off the firewall because the gentleman at Circuit City said it conflicted with the Vista firewall.
Come next month my service will expire and I will be in the market for a new anti-virus program. I am looking for something that has real time monitoring for spyware and malware. I was infected with a malware for a long time that CA never picked up on with the anti-spyware or virus programs, and i thoguht it was supposed to be there. MSserver somethign or other. I had to DL Malwarebyte's anti-malware to remove it. I found that here BTW. I am currently using firefox as my web browser and it has protected me a little bit, but some things still got through.
Is there any programs that will scan the webpages for viruses and spyware in real time? I know CA anti-virus scanned stuff I DLed but don't know about real time spyware scanning. Like adware-pro used to do.
So before I go renewing with CA and just being diligent about removing things as they come in on occasion. I am wondering if you guys could recommend a good package that works well with Vista. If it is a free one that is fine as long as its good and is not full of advertisements. I DLed a free one about a year ago that was just full of advertisements.
Would it be good to have an additional firewall with Vista's firewall? I also have the hardwired firewall built into my wireless router, but not sure how well that works. Its an older linksys wireless G router.
Thanks in advance!
