Hmmm, weird, we have had more than a couple of folks say otherwise with older builds....

Interesting indeed.

I always win at playing "Spot the Virus"
As long as you have a NAT router, you don't need a software firewall if you practice safe computing. Same goes for the AV.
But you'd be crazy to not run a firewall and be directly connected without a router. So many vulnerabilities out there and all it takes is an open port.

Unless, of course, you're *testing* antimalware software....

Bruce Harrison, lead test for MBAM, does it all the time- a live connection wide open on his system - and he uses a live system, not a Virtual system - hence why MBAM consistently gets detection and removal right.

I am downloading the Beta now and browsing to see what the overall concensus is for AV and FW.

Looks like avast and Kaspersky are the front runners thus far.

I will test with each of them.

One on one of my 32bit systems, and the other on my 64bit system.

Thanks for sharing folks!!

Running Anti-Vir(free) here and the only AV I would run. Best detection rates is the reason why.

Avast! works perfectly well here on both x86 and x86-64.
