i'm planning on buying new security products, and i've narrowed down the options to two

maybe u guys can help me decide...


first was getting the new eset smart security, which comes with nod32, firewall and some lil extras

second was getting just the lastest nod32 and using comodo as a firewall


well, the second one is cheaper, of course, but im a bit worried about how those two products work together (like, any incompatibilities or something?) and also whether the performance varies from the suite thingy


oh, another note.. i dont really care for antispam or parental controls
and i will keep using spybot for good spyware cleaning (tho i've never had any yet, better safe than sorry)


and last but not least, if anyone has any other soft u wanna recommend, feel free :]


thanks in advance

im guessing that means i shouldnt expect any problems :]


do u think the sys resource usage will be lower than eset smart sec? thats kind of a big deal to me cos i'll be getting them for my dad's laptop too, and its kinda slow now

comodo is just a better firewall/packet filter than the eset one at the moment. Resource usage is minimal for both apps :)

Excellent antivirus software and free of charge like AVG Free Edition or Avast Home Edition plus Comodo Firewall it's the best deal imo

Comodo has easy to understand configurations for the noobie and awesome tweaks for advanced users who want to set their own rules. The Defense+ can't be beat either. Only thing I have to say is that the D+ will slow down initially running programs like installers, etc even in Clean PC Mode.
Comodo has also managed to take first place in the Matousec firewall challenge.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
