I'm looking to purchase an all encompassing security suite. Something that cover malware, viruses, trogans, etc. Something that's user friendly but not intrusive at the same time. I'm looking to install it on my new laptop, which I will mostly be using for gaming and surfing the net.


I'm willing to spend money on such a product because as I understand it, the best ones that are free still aren't quite as good as the best ones that have a price tag attached to it. I'm willing to open up my wallet for a little more protection.


So I have two questions for those who know a lot about this subject. In your opinion, what are a few of the best products that fit my criteria and what are some websites that review/rate/compare these products? I'd like to view and compare them before I decide on one.


Thank you for your input.

Hello and :welcome: :


You ask a common question with no "right" answer.

As this board is owned and operated by Malwarebytes corporation, it's a general forum policy not to endorse or denigrate any particular AV.
(Doing so would be unseemly and inappropriate.)
MBAM PREMIUM and MBAE PREMIUM are a fine place to start.

But you will still need a robust AV.
As far as the AV, there is no one "best" option to suit every computer, user and budget.
There are many fine options, all of which should be fine alongside MBAM and MBAE.
Here are a few: List of well-known antivirus products
There are many other computer fora with in-depth, passionate discussions of the topic, and many older threads here at this forum, too.
Having said that, no one security program can protect 100% of users from 100% of malware 100% of the time.
The most important security component is the computer part between the chair and keyboard. ;)
