I've had a secure system with Spyware Doctor w/ AntiVirus.

It is a paid product, but for 39$ I think a year, I can equip 3 or 5 PC's. More than enough for average home network. I found it really didn't work with XP, but Vista and 7 both like it.

I also have Avira, but just do manual scans with it every once in a while for a "second opinion", and it has never found anything on my system, so I am sure SD is doing it's job.

I find nothing gets thru Intelliguard feature, unless you accidentally approve of it.


Just my 2cents

I have had zero problems with spyware, virus and even with firewall disabled on router, I get a full stealth grade on GRC Sheilds Up.

Very satisfied with it, BUT, it is paid.

Hope Internet Security works for ya.

Nothing gets through.

I do use the paid versions of IOBIT, A Squared and Malwarebytes. The extera realtime protection is what helps the most.
Absolutely agree about layered protection -- I really should think of investing in the paid-for version of Malwarebytes; it's a minimal outlay really
