I completely agree with Acklan on this. Many ISPS or portals will offer bundled security services (not in inself a bad thing) and these may duplicate, overlap functionality, or at the worse, harm your operating system. Lulled into a false sense of security, moreover, users may not have every application necessary to be secure.
It may be a little more time-consuming and challenging in the near run, but taking ownship over what is running on your computer, and making the best choices of available products, will over time, make for a more informed user and a safer computer.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
