From what I've heard their suite is really bloated, not to mention their detection rate is untested.

You can get a very high level of protection if you simply use common sense (e.g. don't click on random links/programs), OpenDNS, a non-IE browser (Firefox with WOT) and a free AV (AntiVir/Avast). Unless you are a high risk user in which case you should also add a behavioural blocker or a user-friendly HIPS.

If you want to spend money, why not spend on industry leaders like E-Set or Kaspersky?

Yes I am really high risked and I need a tool to detect what path am on mostly, and secondly to delete software and other malicious things...

Because I want to have 100% of program control, I ve tried with McAffee once and I couldnt have that control...

Nothing is going to protect you from yourself. I would maybe start looking at software such as Returnil or ShadowDefender.
