What other protection will I need for my computer if I buy Avast?

by on March 4, 2010

Q: I was thinking of not renewing Norton on my PC and going with avast 5. A friend told me I would also need to download an anti-malware, firewall and sandbox. If so, what software works best with Avast?

    I suggest you try out Microsoft Security Essentials: http://www.microsoft.com/Security_Essentials/

    It’s free and covers you for anti-virus and anti-malware.

    If you have a router in place already and running an up-to-date version of Windows you should be covered for any type of real firewall need.

      Thanks, Mark. I will check into it.
