May be an idea to look at 1 program covering this area - was one of the reasons I bought Kaspersky. Seem to have more interest for system than virus
Check out a fully working 30 day trial and you will see. Also is strong on pure malware detection so no need for anything else. Quite enough - works fast with scanning but sometimes I feel it is watching every move I make. Must be what some Symantec customers complain about. The not so rare pops from "Proactive defense" confirm there is something watching. Im glad I have fast computer, dont know what you have. Ive been to Kaspersky user forums may be 20 times, each time with important question. Not for everyone but actively developed, well supported on site and exciting new things in beta. They cant deal with being run over by Avira and NOD32, not an option. Worth the money for sure but expect some effort to be required - help files should be read. Must be geeky enough for you, also here own registry entries can be added. Not sure that goes for many popular suites. Download MJ Registry Watcher and fill up until you puke. Unfortunately not possible to get such package from freeware market. KAV is Virus suite, may you want KIS - the internet suite which includes Firewall and some not so useful extras.
Kaspersky close to overkill for me as it is so lack words for SSM. Matter of how you compute I think. I sure dont need Kaspersky hourly or so updates to feel secure, dont need Kaspersky at all - but a nice package and good value. Previously I did run Windows Defender just for the light system monitoring. More than covered now. I prefer the task of getting to know 1 and only 1 program really well.
Other companies have same type of offers - check them out. Im advertising for the old AV brands attempt to stay in business
If AV dont take care of rootkits it is no good today! Well I think Kaspersky have convincing value and mean business.
