Previously I was using Avira Premium Suite(promo) and Comodo firewall along with malwarebytes.
After the expiration of my avira lisence I tried out both Microsoft Security Essentials and ESET Antivirus 5 (beta)
I am a heavy internet user and application downloader.
Avira had an excellent detection rate though it gave a couple of false positives too.
I'm willing to try any free AV(avira or avast or MSE) or ESET in the paid category.
I'm not really sure how much good the free ones (avira/avast) are. In some ways MSE doesn't really convince me as much as Avira Premium Suite did.
Hence I would like your advice on which one to go with...I need something with good detection, I don't mind a few false positives.
Regarding firewall I'm happy with comodo. Though I've never tried any other. If any other alternative is better I would like to know about it as well.
An finally regarding antispyware, I have no idea what is good and what to go with.
SUPERAntiSpyware FREE or Malwarebytes FREE or Spybot SD or any other that you may recommend...
I have heard about some like threatfire and immunet which work in complementing the AV. It would be a great help if you could explain those too...
All help and information is greatly appreciated
