I Use Symantec Endpoint Protection; used to use kaspersky AV but since i run W7 Ultimate X64, KAV slows down my internetspeed dramatically so i started to use SEP and i have no probs at all. My Laptop didn't slow down as with Norton it allways did and i am fully protected.

For Windows 7 32bit I use ZoneAlarm Extreme v9 and for Windows 7 64bit
I use Spyware Doctor with AntiVirus 2010. These two products seem to
catch everything I get

Well, that's something I used to have as my defense system but on Windows XP. Now I'm using BitDefender Internet Security 2010, & I choose is mainly for it's great AntiVirus ability. Though, yesterday I got a surprised results from the Firewall shootout. Shocked at what I've been rely on for last 2 months. BitDefender got one of the real bad showdown in the list there. And not surprised to see Comodo making it to the Top level along with PC Tools Firewall Plus being second best. CHECK OUT for your self.

I changed from Panda Internet Security 2010 to Avast free beta 3. Panda was a huge system hog and there where about 8 processes for Panda in task manager. My security setup now; - Avast Beta 3 Free
- Threatfire
- Windows Firewall
