Mates, i would like some recommendations!

I wanted a Anti Virus, Anti Spyware and Firewall combo recommendation if possible (2016)!

And if possible, a recommendation for an encryption software for my files!

It doesn't matter if it is free or not.

Thank you very much!

I have used tools like emsisoft emergency kit which also uses bitdefender, also spybot also uses bitdefender signatures in its database. Spybot in my opinion prior to using bitdefender database was poor to average in its job. When using emsisoft kit, it found stuff what seemed to be missed by kaspersky which turned out to be false positives, so after many weeks i have concluded that kapsersky is equal to bitdefender but some initial false positives before they are known to be false, seems like it catches more infection. Since using kaspersky and testing against malwarebytes and emsisoft due to its bitdefender database the latter two always turn up zero infections.

Hey jlst, Im a virus removal specialist at a computer repair shop. For anti-virus i recommend Kaspersky. From what i have seen it is the most aggressive anti virus out there, ive had it attack my tools i use before. That should get you what you need and its a pretty all around for everything virus protection. Im not to sure on the file encryption software though.

I use kaspersky internet security, previously i was using avg free antivirus backed up with malwarebytes antimalware which provided decent protection, if avg missed something, malwarebytes caught it quickly. The peculiar incidents that occurred was that while running a scan with malwarebytes, avg would suddenly detect a infection although i had run a scan with avg first and it did not find anything.. So it appears something withing malwarebytes programming that flushes infections to surface better than avg. However while using kaspersky internet security now every malwarebytes scan comes up with no infections so that proves kaspersky does an excellent job and possibly no need for malwarebytes.

If you want to go the free route, comodo free firewall is good for a free firewall, i think it works well with avast. Also spywareterminator does provide online protection on their free version. I have never test comodo firewall though, although some moderators here swear by it. If i was going the free route i would try and combine these if they are compatible. As for encrypting files, i do not have any information there.

Also Glasswire which is network monitoring tool and is also a free firewall, guess combining this with avast, avg or avira is something i would try to get free antivirus, with a free firewall, then throw in spywareterminator for extra protection after seeing a youtube video that put spywareterminator to the test, seemed to provide decent protection. Avira is another excellent free antivirus in my opinion, but does better with an internet connection, the previous two do better if you have computers without an internet connection, since they provide regular offline tools to update signatures for such computers.

Ok i will buy the Kaspersky, i was thinking about bitdefender though.. Just Kaspersky would be enough? Shouldn't i pick an anti-malware -spyware or firewall?

Kaspersky by itself is more than enough. Also, in my experience running more than one malware/anti-virus can cause conflicting issues.

Norton changed alot, also its pretty rough on resources and can bog your pc down. I have pc's come into work all the time with norton and wonder why they run like crap. As far as bitdefender vs kaspersky thats going to boil down to personal preference because i havent used bitdefender much. :D
