    Windows 7 x64 finally!

    Norton 2010 free trial and intend to change to Kaspersky when that expires (which I am running on another computer and pretty happy). Any opinions on Kaspersky? Nobody listed it. After that free trial expires I have a free copy of Panda. Yes, I am cheap... But I have been out of trouble so far.
    Also, I see several people listing MSE. Are you all one of the chosen 75,000 or is there still ways to get it from MS? I don't want to get it somewhere else, who knows what is in there.

    UAC disabled
    ESET NOD32 AntiVirus V4 (Probably the MOST used antivirus on theses forums)
    Windows Firewall
    Thats all you really need, but I do a monthly scan with Malwarebytes and SUPERantispyware
    EDIT: Also use Web of Trust Firefox addon. Noscript is annoying as HELL and worthless IMO. Common seance is also ftw
    EDIT AGAIN: Sorry to mention, I use COMODO SecureDNS. Love it. Blocks your connection from connecting to bad host ex: host with malware

    I use Kaspersky Internet Security since KIS 7. I have now KIS 9 (2010) and before I was using Norton NIS. Never had a problem with this two.
    Kaspersky is the best right now and NIS 2010 coming right after since they made it better on resources consumption. Go for Kaspersky(KIS), it has everything you need in security.

    if the pop up is really an issue for you, you might want to check this out:

    Steps for Windows 7 :


    1. Go to Administrative Tools > Local security policy or type "local security policy" in start menu search.
