Now the confusion and worries here...
mcAfee does not only provide anti-virus but also Firewall and other security features. If I completely remove mcAfee, I will lose the firewall and the such, and avast! 4 does not provide replacement for those. Is there anything I can do with this situation? Is Windows Vista built in firewall enough to protect my system? Or would I need a new set of program just for that. What do you think would be the best solution for this problem?
I really don't like mcAfee. My 2 other system uses Norton Anti-virus. The other computer has a subscription upto 2010 (Of which I didn't know, untill today!) but I've been infected using Norton so my trust kind of faded after that.
Any help please? I haven't connected my XPS to Internet yet as I want it to be safe and secure before going online (also tweaking it a bit first).
P.S: Also if someone could recomend me a set of security programs, I would greatly appreciate it. I was thinking of running;
Anti-virus: Avast! 4
Anti-spyware: Spybot Search and Destroy
Additional-occational scan help: Ad-Aware
Registry Maintenance: Registry Mechanic + CCleaner
Defragmentation Help: Raxco's Perfect Disk
Any thoughts please? Thanks~
