    Hmmm, weird, we have had more than a couple of folks say otherwise with older builds....

    Interesting indeed.

    I ditched my Antivirus on the 8th of November 2006 and stopped using software firewalls back in 2004 and I have never regretted it once since

    Still not one infection and If I cared about outbound protection I wouldn't have the computer connected to the Internet

    I always win at playing "Spot the Virus"
    As long as you have a NAT router, you don't need a software firewall if you practice safe computing. Same goes for the AV.
    But you'd be crazy to not run a firewall and be directly connected without a router. So many vulnerabilities out there and all it takes is an open port.

    Unless, of course, you're *testing* antimalware software....

    Bruce Harrison, lead test for MBAM, does it all the time- a live connection wide open on his system - and he uses a live system, not a Virtual system - hence why MBAM consistently gets detection and removal right.

    I am downloading the Beta now and browsing to see what the overall concensus is for AV and FW.

    Looks like avast and Kaspersky are the front runners thus far.

    I will test with each of them.

    One on one of my 32bit systems, and the other on my 64bit system.

    Thanks for sharing folks!!

    I'll stick with it.

    Running Anti-Vir(free) here and the only AV I would run. Best detection rates is the reason why.

    I too have Kaspersky and find it to be very good, I like the 1hr window for new Viruses.
