Comodo Internet Security, its free and it has a game mode!

Game Mode Suppresses operations that could interfere with a user’s gaming experience such as alerts, virus database updates or scheduled scans.

I would say bitdefender. Good security, bonus system tweaks and has a game mode that opens your ports up to allow connections

Wow on the eset page it said it only protected against 59% of the zero day unknown viruses they tested, I'm glad comodo auto sandboxes unknown files that try to run, otherwise that can be disastrous.

Comodo Internet Security stopped 100% of the 50 zero day viruses I threw at it! even with the sandbox disabled.

OK thanks I have a couple of questions I need answered about COMODO. So far it seems pretty good however Im very confused with the Firewall.

What I am looking for is a way to basically have the firewall ask me the first time any application asks for traffic going out or in. In EST this was labeled interactive mode. In Comdo I cant seem to find this.

BY default it seems to say anything sent from inhouse out is ok. I dont' want applications calling out without me approving it. I than found they have a way to do that, however it was a port by port basis so essentially ever time something opened it would ask 1000 times for each port.

I just want ot say ok IE is asking to go out allow? (YES)
Hey traffic is coming in from outside to PLEX is that allowed? (YES)
Hey Adobe Photoshop is trying to send data out (NO)

that kind of thing. Is this possible with Comodo without a degree?

thanks in advance.

I am not a Comodo or EST user, but all I can say is that Norton Internet Security 2011 is very straightforward, with clear user controls and features; it also has a Silent Mode feature, that way gamers can enjoy their gaming activities; it is also automatically activated when a program like PowerPoint runs in full-screen mode or if the user is burning discs :-)

However, I do not want to nudge this thread into the usual "which is the best antivirus software?" discussion - there's already a thread devoted to that topic.

"Is this possible with Comodo without a degree?"

launch Comodo--go to Firewall tab--select 'Define a new trusted Application'

a box should open with a 'select' button on the right side--clicking on it should open a flyout menu with 3 choices--one of them being 'Running Processes'

launch a program that you want to allow--then in the above mentioned flyout--select 'running processes' --this should open a window called 'Choose a Process'--scroll to the specific running process--click on it to highlight it--then click on the 'select' button at the bottom of the window-then click the 'apply' button.

this should eliminate the constant need to specify allow, deny, etc

you don't need a degree--just go to the 'more' tab--read the help section

Deciding which Security Suite
I've been using Trend Micro for the last 6-7 years and I'm starting to review new suites and find the Trend Micro is not ranking very good or not being reviewed at all, which is a bad sign.
