Is Qihoo 360 Total Security Safe?


Recommended Posts

Personally, I wouldn't use any Qihoo 360 programs, since they recently got blacklisted from the three major Antivirus testing labs for using deceptive methods in their products to increase their efficiency during benchmark tests. You can read the article below for more information.




Just that would be enough to go with another Antivirus product if you ask me.


Also, since this is Malwarebytes forums, do not except recommendations from Staff (should apply to members as well) on what Antivirus product you should use.

MBAM PREMIUM and MBAE PREMIUM (and MBARW, when it is released) are a fine place to start for layered protection.

But you still need a robust AV and a firewall.
As far as the AV or firewall choice, there is no one "best" option to suit every computer, user and budget.

As this board is owned and operated by Malwarebytes corporation, it's a general forum practice not to endorse or denigrate any particular AV.
There are many fine options, all of which should be fine alongside MBAM and MBAE.

There are many other computer fora with in-depth, passionate discussions of this 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. ;)
