Hi there people of the samaritan cumunity of trying to fight for clean computer! I just entered the stage as member but I've been a follower for many years.
I work as a Admin/ developer in a small company mainly because of my intrest in computers. - You do it, you like that stuff. They sed. So here i am. Not hierd as that from beginning. And thats no secret on how small companys recrute the ones to take care of the 'IT' . That dosent allways mean I know what im doing but ill get there ..
Anyway, heres finaly the question: I would like you to shear your thoughts about good soulutions for not having to "rent" big antivirusoftware produkts anymore. I have found them to not doo the job properly! The computers I set upp for the company allmost all sooner rather then later becomes bloated with all kinds of crap. Thanksfully the tool at bleeping does a great jobb of cleaning them. We now have for all computers Symantecs Norton Internet security än i've just resently also bouht the Malwarebytes antimalware to go along with that suite. I have now even started to tell the to use Super antivirus ( free) once a week.
The thing is if some thing happens, and the do. I have to remotley clean them due to great distanses. Thats fine, my jobb, but i can't help wondering if we hawe the right tools installed? i don't want to set group polices due to lack of parts they need and the freedom we think the company thrives on. In conclusion i got a little more work that I dont think a have to have. And I always have a short time to do it. Finaly, I'm not keen on hireing the big suits every year as today if there is a sheaper allmost as good or better solution of combined ones. Maybee not freeware with ads and popups but lifetime license antivirus/malware that work together and as complement to oneanaother? Any ideas, exsperience outhere?
The laptops they use are free to use in any way the see fit, responsibly ofcourse. They have them as thin klients to a virtual server to log on for business session and that area is stricly protected and scaled in pricipels and policys so thats not the problem .. Yet;) The cellular phones and tablets is allso a concern nowadays but that I could lift aside for now. The user could need an introduktion in Internetbehavior but they heard me speaking about it but it seemes to me the only time they realy learn is when they out of connection.... I read tons of reviews and tested some programs too but I cant say what is best together. I know testing with bitdefender. Malwarebytes, syperantispyware, spybot and throw even in advaced systemcleaner, that also installed iobit malwarefighter ...just to se if it might correkt the overall lack of performence and instability due to all programs;-) I know , just testing... It was fun.. Not a alternativ.
Thanks for listening. Long letter I know but now you know who I am and Im sure will meet again.

I'm not an advocate of suites. All-in-one tools and suites generally use more system resources than separate programs that do the same task. They tend to have varying degrees of strengths and weaknesses for each feature. In contrast, separate tools are designed, built and maintained with a greater focus in a specific area so they are generally of better quality and more effective at what they are designed to do. This means the program's performance for that particular feature is usually superior than their all-in-one counterpart. Further, all-in-one tools generally do not allow the user as much flexibility in tailoring default settings and usage.

Quietman7!
I think so to. The issue is that once I'll placed one of those small special programs for i " malwarebytes antiexploits" the dont relly understad what it does and never custumize those programs for specific use neigher. I have to make the general configurements once I install and mostly get complaints about worse webpageload. My coworkers are hard to please;-) Still love them! Thanks for the reply. Glad to hear about your thoughts.
