    McAfee, because it's bundled with everything at Currys.

    Microsoft Defender under Win 8.1. Don't need any more than that as long as you're not searching the darker corners of the web

    I've used Kaspersky for years on mine and my family's PC's. However, I agree very much that there is no substitute for basic common sense when using the internet. Unfortunately my family seem to have very little...

    Re: What security software do you use?

    Albeit rather late ...

    Norton. I have been using it since the late 80's and it has never failed me ~ unlike the McAfee I purchased for my first PC.

    Re: What security software do you use?

    I use SSH with a ublic/private key pair for remote authentication to a server, ssl for e mail and occasionally team viewer for remote PC access. I still use trucrypt for some applications, andI take regular backups of my data, which is also on a RAID1 system.

    Re: What security software do you use?

    Where is the 'other' option?

    Avira Antivirus, have done for quite some time.

    Edit: god damn it, on my phone's small screen I didn't realise I'd fallen into a necro thread.
    Grab that. Get that. Check it out. Bring that here. Grab anything useful. Take anything good.

    Re: What security software do you use?

    Bitdefender Total Security 2018. I used ESET NOD32 for donkeys years (about 15) but it just got too expensive. Bitdefender is right up there with the best in independent tests, covers all my family PCs, Android phones and tablets all in with the Family pack. Currently have 3 year licence, and 15 devices covered, very cost effective.

    Like ESET, Bitdefender has a very small footprint and does not hog resources, unlike some other suites....
    Try to make each and every day the best it can be.
