    Malwarebytes update notice "Your software is out of date."

    Recently AVG has been extremely annoying. Games that it didn't used to flag are being flagged; older games (Star Wars: Starfighter) are crashing because of AVG (Game starts, loads some, AVG brings it down claiming it's a virus, same old same old).

    Good anti-malware + antivirus combo?

    On my newly built PC I want to go ahead and get some antimalware/antivirus software just to be safe. I highly doubt I'll ever run into any issues as the truly best protection is common sense.

    Kaspersky PURE 3.0 vs BitDefender Total Security 2015 vs FREE Anti-Virus software/ internet security

    Trying to figure out which security software to get for my new gaming/business/work rig. I currently have been using Kaspersky. It's been great, although sometimes it detects something minor, but it recommends to "ignore" it, instead of completely erase. I think it just quarantines it, but...
