    New PC


    Hi im up to a new gaming PC,a core i7,i need to know as this is my first new PC of such value,i need to know what kind of antivirus and other useful applications should i use,well in my old PC i had avast and now im with the Microsoft essentials,is this a antivirus as avast and others?and as malware products i use ccleaner,malwarebytes and superantyspyware,are these enough?anything else suggested?

    Hello Shankly769

    That's great you want to take care of your Computer . I would recommend Avast and Malwarebytes because there really secure antivirus | antimalware programs . I have been using Malwarebytes for a couple of years now and to this day I encounter no problem at all. It's up to you but that's what I think.

    Backup is used for backing up your files, incase anything goes wrong you won't lose anything. Now as for the Antivirus I highly suggest that you only have one antivirus and one malware remover . You don't wan't to many virus protection programs , because I have learned from past experience that it can slow down the Computer.

    Microsoft Security Essentials comes with Windows so just leave it.

    Again it's up to you how many Antivirus programs you want , but I suggest you stick to two instead of three or four.
