Preferred Solution: Avast! 2016 11.1.2241 Final

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.)

I have 6 months trial license all of them. Which one do you recommend?

Thank you in advance.

Best regards.

Heyye.
 

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.

Have a look here for Avast and Bitdefender info:

​New version of AVAST Antivirus (build number 12.1.2272), called NITRO Update.
It's for these products: Free Antivirus, Pro Antivirus, Internet Security and Premier.
This update is focused on improving the performance and detection capabilities. We also stopped using the year in product name, as we will be releasing new versions in monthly cycles from now.
We also removed some features that might have been causing problems or not being used by many users in order to make Avast faster and lighter.

What's new:
+ Lower system impact - faster boot time, less space taken on disk
+ CyberCapture - better detection of unknown and unique files via our cloud technology
+ Regular monthly program updates - automatic and silent, configurable via Settings
+ Improved detection of router vulnerabilities
+ New Bank mode in SafeZone browser
+ Faster SecureLine connection
+ Antispam is now as opt-in component
- Removed hardware virtualization (NG) - replaced with CyberCapture,that has much lower impact on system resources
- Removed Remote assistance - not used enough and not a core functionality

How to install:
1. Update from existing Avast version via Settings -> Update -> Update program
2. Or you can download and install from here:

The launch of the highly anticipated Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system is upon us, and now Canonical has just announced that the GNU/Linux distro entered final freeze.

On April 14, 2016, Adam Conrad announced that the "Final Freeze" development state is now in effect for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, which means that there will be no new features added to the upcoming operating system, nor major changes will happen until its official launch next week, on April 21, 2016, with the exception of critical bugs.

Time flies fast when you're having fun testing the latest release of Ubuntu Linux, which we've been using on some of our computers since the beginning of the year to keep up with all the changes Canonical had planned for its next LTS (Long Term Support) release of Ubuntu, and share the highlights with our readers.

"As of nowish, xenial has entered the Final Freeze period in preparation for the final release of Ubuntu 16.04 LTS next week," said Adam Conrad on behalf of the Ubuntu Release Team. "The current uploads in the queue will be reviewed and either accepted or rejected as appropriate by pre-freeze standards."

Hello, I have an Acer Aspire One netbook running Windows 7 Home Premium, and I need protection. It only has 1GB of RAM, so would I get Avast! free 5.1 or Comodo internet security 5.0? I was thinking of maybe MSE 2.0, but heard it is not RAM friendly.

A:Avast! Free 5.1 final vs Comodo Internet security 5.0

I wouldnt use Comodo AV since its hasnt been tested and it has an okay detection. The backbone of the whole suite of comodo is the D+ which is a HIPS.

Why not use Avast Free + Comodo FW w/ D+? You get a very good AV and an excellent firewall+hips program.

Well, having lots of time on my hands New Year's Eve, I'm gonna go ahead and install avast 2016 on one of my older XP systems.
First, I backed-up all my customized settings:  Avast / Settings / General / Back Up Settings.
I downloaded avast 11.1.2245 (153.73 MB) from http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/avast_free_edition.html

As always, be sure to watch out for, and UNcheck, the pre-checked offers to install Google Chrome and make it your default browser.
I clicked on Customize, to perform a CUSTOM installation.   I was presented with a list of the various modules avast had available:

On this system, I decided NOT to accept Secure Line, Cleanup, and Passwords.   NOTE:   Since this system was XP, it did NOT offer me NG/Vitual Machine technology (which, if offered, I would have rejected as well).
I then allowed the installation to proceed.  There was a popup from WinPatrol about a Run-Once program (Avast Emergency Updater) that would run upon reboot... but that was it:   no formal request for a reboot.   The old 2015 program/interface was still there and running.   But in Control Panel, under Add/Remove Programs, it indicated I had Avast 2016.   So I decided it was time to reboot, and see what happens...
Sure enough, avast 2016 was now installed/running.   Surprisingly, it appeared to have kept all my customized settings from 2015.   Regardless, I decided to IMPORT/... Read more

Avast Internet Security 2016 offers a great level of protection on its default settings. However, there are a few settings which you can change to increase even more the protection offered by Avast Internet Security 2016.
This guide should also cover Avast Premium 2016, and some settings should apply to Avast Free 2016.



1. Enable Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUP's) detection
A PUP (potentially unwanted program) is a program that may be unwanted, such as spyware, despite the possibility that users consented to download it. This usually includes: toolbars, browser hijackers or adware (ad-supported software)

Open Avast, then click on Settings (gear icon)


In the "General" tab, select "Scan for potentially unwanted software (PUPs)".

​2. Enable Avast Hardened Mode
Hardened Mode is designed to make protection tougher without interfering with the computer usage much.
Avast by default checks suspicious files with DeepScreen within virtual environment to see how they behave. But if you use Hardened Mode, it starts to behave a bit differently.

Hardened Mode: Moderate
Under normal conditions, if Avast decides that some file is too suspicious by various characteristics, it then throws it into the DeepScren for further scanning. But if Moderate Hardened Mode is enabled, Avast automatically blocks files that are detected as suspicious by preliminary analysis.
In most cases DeepScreen checks the file and if it doesn't find obviou... Read more

Avira + Comodo firewall is almost unbreakable. Best signatures and best proactive for zero day malwares.

I've tried many free antivirus over the years, but these two have always consistently been the ones I liked the most.

After some issues with Windows 10 last year, I had to briefly switch to Avira but after the issues were fixed I got back to Avast because it was the one I had learned to rely upon in the last few years. However, I'm open to reassess my position between these two excellent products. Something that has also spurred me to reassess the situation was the fact that LifeHacker has recently changed their recommendation from Avast to Avira as the "The Best (Free) Antivirus App for Windows".

On one hand Avast offers a more complete feature set:

File System Shield
Web Shield
Mail Shield
Behavior Blocker (DeepScreen)

Still, I disable the E-mail blocker because I solely use Web mail. I also disable the Web shield because:

It seems to slightly slow down my browsing
I don't like to have all my HTTP traffic analyzed by the AV or any other program
Sometimes it doesn't play well with HTTPS because it internally to scan the encrypted traffic which changes the original website's certificate (I know I can selectively disable the Web Shield for HTTPS only)

So, in practice, I have been using the File System Shield and the Behavior Blocker at default sensitivity settings (no Hardened Mode) to avoid too many False Positives and issues with less known software. I've had no problems with this set up for a long time.

Regarding Avira, it lac... Read more

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.

Avast and SecureAPlus have been fairly interesting for me. Both seem to have great scanning and protection. Which would you choose?
NOTE: I have heard that SecureAPlus may have a really slow scan in the beginning. If that something you don't like that fine, Avast has a slow scan as well so I am not counting against either one.
 

A:Avast Free Anti-Virus 2016 vs SecureAPlus Free (Latest)

Thread Approved. Here are the official websites:

Avast Free Antivirus: Avast | Download Free Antivirus for PC, Mac & Android
SecureAPlus: Free Cloud Antivirus & Application Control for PC - SecureAPlus
@J Gamez065 If all factors are to be considered, why is the initial slow scanning ignored?

Realistic Performance Impact
Ease of Use
Graphical User Interface

Preferred Product and Why?

Compared to the last "boring" beta releases, this is again pure beta with bugs so feel free to report them back via forum or new feedback form in the program.
We also welcome any feedback on the new features and changes, of course.
Changes:

NEW: Passwords - Avast can now manage your passwords and generate strong passwords for you. Just one password to remember.
- checks your passwords security
- stores your passwords securely
- includes browser extensions for easier logging in and form filling
- generates strong passwords

NEW: SafeZone browser - Replaced the SafeZone for safer shopping and banking

- Pay Mode: runs automatically on banking sites (This isolates the session and protects it from possible keyloggers or other malicious software secretly lurking on your computer. With Pay Mode you can perform all your financial transactions in peace, without fear of your password or other personal details being stolen. Pay Mode can be also turned on manually directly via browser UI.)

- Ad Blocker:The browser comes with built-in Ad Blocker that blocks all those annoying online ads and banners

I have recently bought a new laptop and I installed norton security standard version no backup
And yesterday I got a new license from the avast giveaway that was posted here on MT
I like how little impact has norton on my system but I don't know if it is good enough for detecting PUP and PUA, and this system might not be always connected to the internet (around 80% of the time),
so do you guys think that avast is a better solution or should I keep norton
 

A:Avast internet security 2016 vs Norton security standard

I vote for Norton.
If you change SONAR to agressive you will have better protection against zero-day threats even offline.( despite Sonar requires on-line connection for better heuristic real-time protection. )
Norton is lighter, Its improved performace and, I think if you are 80%of the time not connectec to internet, norton gives you a very good layer of protection

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.
