Thanks Frostmourne, but what about anti-phishing and pharming?

Till now AVG did not reply my query on x64 platform support from them. And yet Tune Up Customer Care promptly replied being in the same time zone. Maybe to many viruses keep AVG too busy ;-|

This can be done on a per browser basis and i know that Firefox, IE, Opera and Chrome have an option for anti-phishing...

for anti-pharming you can use alternative DNS such as OpenDNS (i should also add that they do anti-phishing too) which offers such protection...
also a bonus is if you configure your router to a Alternative DNS all of your machines which have the defaults on (i.e DHCP) get such protection automatically...

My personal opinion here is to not invest in the 1 "kitchen sink" style application. It seems like what you want is something that does everything perfectly, updates itself without your involvement, takes no system resources and will protect you 110%.

Unfortunately, I think these requirements are too lofty for any application out there. While some of the applications do provide steller results in one area, they may provide very weak results in other areas. Therefore, for best protection, I find it better to use a couple of products which each have their strong points.

For freebie apps, I recommend MSE more than others for AV. For the malware part, I use Malware Bytes. For additional support, you might try OpenDNS.

For commercial apps, I suggest ESET. This is usually recommended for the person who is willing to take chances on their computer (peer to peer, torrenting, adult web sites, etc) and aren't terribly computer savvy. But as you have noted, this doesn't meet absolutely 100% of your requirements.

For my own use, I'm pretty savvy and simply don't seem to find much trouble online. Therefore, I don't need the world's strongest protection...nor do I need 15 apps to keep me safe. An AV in the background (MSE), coupled with the windows built -in firewall and my hardware NAT router firewall, with malware bytes is more than sufficient.

I'm sorry. But I've been reading this thread and the OP just seems to be a pain.

What difference does it make if the software is x64 native or compatible? An x64 software is not going to stop more threats than a x64 compatible one.

Forgive me, but stop being a pain in the ass. Enough solutions have been provided here.

@GreatPoster,
How about using MSE, Windows Firewall, Malwarebytes (not in realtime)and peerblock combination? I've never had any problems at all and it's free. For anti phishing most browsers already have inbuilt protection so it's fine. Emails are usually scanned by the providers these days and most of us here are savvy enough to not be worried about email viruses I guess.

@TGSoldier,
It's just like insisting on using WMP x64 or any browsers x64 version. practically pointless but if it makes people happy .. let them :P
