    Hey guys, Yoan here aka Aura with a discussion thread for you (just using the presentation form to piss off Chief)

    So I would like to know what you are using as protection setup for your computer : Antivirus, Antimalware, protection utilities, etc. It would be nice to see who here have a decent setup, who doesn't give a damn about it and who goes totally overkill.

    You could fill this simple form if needed
    Code:
    [color=#1E90FF][b]Antivirus :[/b][/color]
    [color=#1E90FF][b]Firewall :[/b][/color]
    [color=#1E90FF][b]Antimalware :[/b][/color]
    [color=#1E90FF][b]Web Browser(s) :[/b][/color]
    [color=#1E90FF][b]Web Extension(s) :[/b][/color]
    [color=#1E90FF][b]Protection Utilities :[/b][/color]
    [color=#1E90FF][b]Others :[/b][/color]
    
    I'll start, let's see what I'm using !

    Antivirus : Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 (on my desktop computer and my laptop, as well as on my family's computer). I've been a Kaspersky user for about ... 6 years now I think ? Even a bit more ? Kaspersky is just the perfect solution to my eyes. It's one of the best Antivirus, his detection ratio is very high, it offers multiples protection features, it's fully customizable, you can set it up to operate in the way you want, etc. It's just THE Antivirus I needed and that I recommend. I've never been infected with any important/harmful malware since I have Kaspersky.
    Firewall : Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 integrated firewall. Fully customizable, once again.
    Antimalware :
    • Malwarebytes Premium;
    • Junkware Removal Tool;
    • AdwCleaner;
    • RogueKiller;
    • TDSSKiller;
    Even if I don't run these tools often, they're still there when I do a monthly full check up of my system and they're part of the best tools you can have to detect and delete any kind of malware present on your system.
    Web Browser(s) : Google Chrome 64-bits
    Web Extension(s) : Tampermonkey, Ghostery, AdBlock, AdBlock Plus, Web of Trust, HTTPSEverywhere, LastPass. Considering installing ScriptSafe.
    Protection Utilities : I don't use any protection utilities like Keyscrambler or any other utilities that would protect your data. Kaspersky does it all, mostly because it have it's own secured encrypted keyboard and financial transaction protection. I however use Truecrypt to protect/lock all my important files in an hidden partition. My HDD is now fully encrypted with BitLocker.
    Others : Nope, that's it ! I use CCleaner, TFC (Temp File Cleaner) and JetClean regulary in order to delete all the junk from my system and keep it optimized. Glary Utilities and JetClean have been added.

    Now it's your turn, let's see what everyone here is using !

    PS: I might edit this post a few time along this thread to add more and more programs/utilities/etc.

    Pretty nice!

    I don't really bother with a lot to be honest. I use a Mac, I have Avast Anti-Virus just for security.
    I use Chrome with Adblock, Hola, and Dashlane.

    If I have something super important on my SDD, I'll encrypt and password protect it.

    It looks like the most common malware issue under OS X are Adware, and sadly, because I don't specialize in OS X malware removal (I just hate the OS), I cannot offer assistance when someone comes to me and ask for help.

    Antivirus : Avast (free)
    Firewall : Windows has one :D
    Antimalware : -
    Protection Utilities : -
    Others : Well if CCleaner counts, I got that.

    The main tool which defends me is something called "common sense". Not clicking on adds, spotting phishing and the likes.

    Norton "fully premium" doesn't exist. And so does "Malwarebytes 2014". Why do you use crack of security programs except of paying for them? They are worth it.

    Pretty sure that 360TS offers only additional bloated features that aren't needed, plus that you got covered with Glary Utilities. 360IS would be enough.
