Now! ESET has just released their newest security suite: ESET Smart Security 9 (2016 Edition). These products are on the top of security suites which are produced by giants on security companies. Most of them released 2016 editions of their products.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

If you come from Bitdefender then I would recommend you KIS2016, quite light; very effective. ESET is also a good option, Emsisoft same stuff. If you like smooth and less interactive protection ESET and Kaspersky would be better, Emsisoft is cool but a bit more interactive IMO.

Earlier I was using Bitdefender and thought Bitdefender was the number 1 and Kaspersky is the number 2. But After coming to this forum I realized that the reality is completely different! Some products have trouble working with Windows 10, some have trouble protecting 64bit systems. I did some digging and settled with two products. Kaspersky and ESET. Im using a Windows 10 64 bit system. What product might be the best for such a setup?
 

A:ESET Smart Security 9 vs Kaspersky Internet Security 2016 for Win 10 64bit

For purely protection basis you may go to ESET SS 9 as you can tweak the HIPS for protection and their Sandbox (Banking) + so far the architecture (x64) isn't affected from performance.

KIS 2016 is a promising suite, however until now limited components working from prevention due to Windows 10 environment which the developers make a note to fix those issues; but overall a balance concept where you can tweak more from numerous components.

Somehow the system impact tends to be consistent as light for ESET than Kaspersky.

Still brace yourself to see those possible unique characteristics.

A:Avast IS 2016 / Panda IS 2016 / Bitdefender IS 2016

What kind of system do you have?
Panda and Avast are the lightest while Bitdefender can be heavy.

All 3 offer excellent protection (Avast requires tweaking; Bitdefender and Panda works out of the box), while Bitdefender is mainly known for its detection rate (signatures).

Try the 3 of them (trial versions, not the 6 months) and see which one you prefer.

In terms of UI, all 3 are user friendly.

A:Bullguard inyernet security 2016 vs ESET Smart security V9

Most Internet Security products include anti-virus and firewall protection plus various other features depending on the software vendor...and for those reasons it is called a Security suite.I'm not an advocate of suites. All-in-one tools and suites are filled with extra features (including "bells & whistles") which typically use more system resources than separate programs that do the same task while other suites leave a much smaller footprint. Suites tend to have varying degrees of strengths and weaknesses accorded for each feature they incorporate. Internet Security Suites include a Firewall component, which IMO is unnecessary since the Windows built-in firewall is one of the best and provides adequate protection. Further, many folks also use a router which is essentially a hardware firewall.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 program settings and usage.HTG Explains: Why You Don’t Need a Full Internet Security SuiteIf you are adamant about using a suite, then I would recommend one of the following:Emsisoft Internet SecurityESET Smart SecurityKaspersky Internet SecuritySee my comments at the bottom of ...

I understand its Free vs Paid product comparision but anyway
 

A:F-Secure Internet Security 2016 vs Panda Free Antivirus 2016

If a security soft ranks amongst the top performing AVs, it won't matter much if it does function correctly or causes problems on your specific system.

From lab test results F-Secure has an edge over Panda during testing the past few years in terms of detection (although higher false positives).

From users, it seems more prefer Panda - which is one of Neil Rubenking's (PCMag) favs (that don't mean much - but that is just my opinion).

I'd say, in terms of overall protection, Panda has a slight edge; it might protect your system in a few instances that F-Secure will not.

A:Bitdefender vs Kaspersky (2016). System Impact?

It is not clear-cut answer.

Bitdefender adds less to system reboot. Kaspersky much longer reboot.

Bitdefender uses about 200 to 300 MB RAM.

Bitdefender requires more advanced IT knowledge to solve problems when it issues occur.

Kaspersky has much better protections - much. Bitdefender needs supplement like NVT ERP because it is weak against some malicious scripts.

Bitdefender is good for laptop; has low battery mode.

Kaspersky is good for desktop and probably the best IS suite for family.

A:Kaspersky Internet Security 2016 vs Avast! Internet Security 2016

If you have the money to purchase it, I would strongly recommend Kaspersky Internet Security 2016.
Overall, Kaspersky might not be as user friendly (many alerts when properly configured) and as light as Avast (Kaspersky always was a little hoggy, although that has been mostly fixed in the recent versions), however the security components of KIS are much more mature and powerful (when properly configured) than those of AIS.

In conclusions, if you have capable computer hardware and you don't mind a little bit of configuration and quite a few alerts, I would definitely recommend KIS.
If you believe that KIS might be too heavy for your system, and that you do not really visit suspicious sites and download suspicious applications, then I'd recommend AIS.

hjlbx said:





If you keep your software and OS updated - and aren't a high-risk user, then the probability of an exploit is low - something like less than 2 % according to industry data. Therefore, anti-exploit protection isn't needed - statistically - for the vast majority of users.

If you want layered protection, then anti-exploit is one of the basic layers.

My attitude towards exploits that they are very unlikely - yet still possible (true 0-Day). Therefore, I run all commonly exploited programs - browsers, Adobe products, office suites, archivers, etc - with limited file system and registry access rights using AppGuard. AppGuard will not prevent an exploit, but it will block the post-exploit actions. I have seen it stop a nasty exploit payload from altering the system.Click to expand...

Ransomware Protection ? is a new module included in all Bitdefender 2016 classic line products (Antivirus Plus, Internet Security and Total Security) and it is designed to protect certain folders from ransomware malware that infects client?s PC?s, encrypts personal files, making them unusable and demand money in exchange.

http://www.Bitdefender.com/images/1DE/1aaaaa/1.png

Ransomware malware - is a malicious software that attacks vulnerable systems by locking them, and asks for money to let the user take back the control of his system. The malicious software displays false messages to panic the user, urging him to proceed with the asked payment.

Ransomware can have one of the following behaviors:

Encrypts sensitive and personal files without giving the possibility of decryption until a ransom is paid by the victim.

Locks the computer?s screen and displays a message asking for money. In this case, no file is encrypted, only the user is forced to proceed with the payment.

Blocks applications from running.

Using the latest technology, Bitdefender Ransomware Protection ensures system integrity by protecting critical system areas against damages without impacting the system.

Hi everyone,
 
Recently i have installed Bitdefender Total Security 2016, And noticed that internet browsing became very slow!, Like any page that used to "fully" load instantly or in 2 seconds, Now it would take about 15 seconds or more!, Also i noticed that the time windows take in the "Welcome" screen got way longer!, It used to be about 3 - 5 seconds now its' about 17 seconds, I'm aware that antivirus must have an impact on the performance in general, But not like that.. I googled it and found many people who've been facing the same issue, I tried almost everything mentioned in their topics and still having the same issue. So i was wondering if someone is familiar with that or know a way to fix it.
 
Things i tried and didn't fix the problem:
 
- Stopped firewall.
- Changed adapter settings.
- Disabled web protection module.
- Changed Router's DNS/PC DNS.
- Used Bitdefender removal tool/Re-downloaded/Re-installed/Repaired.
- Tried different browsers.
- http://www.bitdefender.com/support/my-internet-is-slow-1100.html
- Did a fresh windows installation!
 
 
Notes:
- Download speed is not affected.
- Websites that has SSL/HTTPS connection are slower than the ones who use the regular http/non-secure.

A:Bad/Slow performance after installing Bitdefender Total Security 2016

Anyone using KIS 2016 & 2017 should note there are 'limitations' following the Anniversary Update - see https://support.kaspersky.com/us/11736 and https://support.kaspersky.com/us/12848 and http://support.kaspersky.co.uk/12394

Maybe Defender is safer?

Note Edge is not supported.

Hi:

Thanks for posting.

I'm not shilling for KL or anything...

For the record, that KB article is > 1 month old (and predates patch (a), I think).
And lots of folks have upgraded to KIS/KAV/KTS 2017 under RS1 without issue.
BUT BUT Patch (b) has been in beta-testing for > 1 week, and is supposed to fix most of these issues:
https://forum.kaspersky.com/index.php?showtopic=356039

I guess it's sort of like AU/RS1 itself: you'll have either no problems or some problems.

Having said that, I lean a bit closer to the cautious Luddite side than to the adventurous "bleeding edge" side of things.
So, I am still on Win10 1511 and KIS 2016 for a while longer.
At my age, I like to take things slow and steady....

Cheers,
MM

Hi!
 
I am considering buying Kaspersky Internet Security in store; is this Kaspersky software version worth the buy?
I am using AVG Free as of right now, and a Kaspersky Anti Virus Trial!

A:Kaspersky Internet Security 2016 - 3 users 18 months

Kaspersky is consistently ranked near the top by anti-virus testing labs. Here's a comparison chart from AV comparatves web site: http://chart.av-comparatives.org/chart1.php?chart=chart2&year=2015&month=12&sort=1&zoom=2.
Pc magazine has a review of it as well. http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2460689,00.asp
Performance is important but Another consideration is the usability of the software. Are you comfortable with the user interface? Is it easy to find out if your anti-virus definitions are up to date, configure scheduled scans, etc.

Successfully installed "Bitdefender Total Security 2016" (win7 sp1 x86) and when I try to update with offline virus database from their official website, I've got this error...
"Runtime Error (at -1:0)
cannot import dll:C:\(temp directory)\sftldll.dll"

Already re-download update files several times but still the same.

Any solution to fix this?
Thank you so much
