Recently, an acquaintance suggested I try using Agnitum's Outpost Free software. Presently I use Avast! AV (free), and PC Tools Firewall Plus (free) [as well as MBAM Pro]. Thus far, the combination seems to run quite well.
The question I was going to pose was to be as follows:: Would it be more advantageous to just utilize the Agnitum Outpost AV Free (since it is both an AV and also has a firewall), rather than having to use Avast! AV + a separate firewall (PC Tools)?
However, despite a significant number of "views" of this post...it appears there isn't much interest in responding to it. Since I am unable to delete the post, I will just withdraw it from any further consideration by the forum here.
Thank you to those who took the time to at least view the post.
