Please stick to one thread with your questions. It is much less confusing that way.

CarlTR6 answered your questions here: What's the Best Anti-virus?

As to the extra question, ESET Smart Security is a suite, making it an "all-in-one" program. However, it is still recommended that you maintain a second anti-malware software. Since you already have MBAM, you can keep that for occasional scanning as well.
Ok,thanks.
Panais, rather than buying a security suite, which you do not need in my opinion as what you are currently running is more than adequate, I recommend that you invest in a router, even if you have only one computer. A router's built in hardware firewall offers much better protection and security than any software firewall. This would be a much more sound investment of your money. There are plenty of folks here that can help you set up a router if you run into trouble.

And you can run a software firewall along with the router's firewall.
I enable my router firewall and i have also enable comodo firewall,is that ok?
Or they are conflict each other?
You can see all my security in the attachment.
I hope they are enough!

Yes, it is fine to run a software firewall along with the router's firewall. They should not confilct. I run Comodo firewall along with my router's firewall.

Your security should be quite good with this setup.

If you need help with setting up your router firewall, please feel free to ask. You want it to be in stealth mode with no open ports.

You can test your router security here: ShieldsUP Scroll down the web page and click on the ShieldsUP link. Run the first three tests. This will give you a good report of your internet security.

So eset firewall is not enough, is it?

I don't get in to arguments over personal preferences. Dinesh was posting about a bad experience with ESET anti-virus, not the ESET firewall. Personally, I don't like security suites for several reasons; but that is just my opinion. I prefer stand alone programs. And there are many good free anti-virus and and firewall programs out there; I simply don't see a reason to waste money on purchasing a suite.

The short answer is no.

That is not because it is not good; it is because software firewalls can be hacked and gone around. Certainly software firewalls offer much more protection than no firewall. A hardware firewall built into a router and configured properly is much better than a software firewall. They are much more difficult to work around.

That said, I have both. But I use my software firewall to monitor outgoing connections.

I see that ESET Smart Security 4 is now listed as Windows 7 32-bit/64-bit compatible: Firewall, Antivirus, Antispam: ESET Smart Security Has It All ...under the System Requirements section. I wonder if they've updated it since I tried it, I may put the latest build on to try it again.
