I'm running win7 Home Premium and just got a new hard drive.
I've been using Norton Anti-virus (from centurylink) and comodo firewall in the past. However, CL's site for downloading the anti-virus program is down (has been for 24 hours) and comodo's firewall now comes with defense + that conflicts with Norton and even though turned off not sure if that's good enough + it now pops up, even in safe setting on the firewall and I don't know enough what to ok and what to block - it didn't used to have the defense+ with the fire wall or popups under safe.
Since my main computer just got a new hard drive and I can't use until I find the right security for it & I was looking for suggestions.
I'm low income so want to use safe free programs and any other suggestions to include would be fine (I usually install free sandboxie, malwarebytes, peerblock, spywareblaster, did have ccleaner but heard conflicted with a program, had winpatrol but heard it conflicts with other programs,had Spybot Search & Destroy- but heard it conflicted with programs I had, I had DNS through comodo, ff with cookies monster, better privacy, ghostery, wot, adblocker+,linkextend, flagfox, noscript, FEBE, & redirect remover, used to have mvphosts - but caused some problems.
So would appreciate suggestions on free anti-viral, free firewall and any other security suggestions to run a safer computer.
