  1. Hello everyone, I reciently decided to switch from BitDefender to something else after learning BDs firewall doesn't actually block any ports.

    I have about an $80 budget to get the best possible antivir/firewall combo. I don't want one that is too intrusive, in other words, I don't want my computer slowed to a crawl because of any active scan stuff whenever playing a game. (Gaming machine)

    I also run a personal FTP server for my close friends so I'd like a nice port blocker in it also, one that I can trust.

    Thanks in advance!

    Oh, to anyone that recommends me doing a search, I've tried. "antivirus" and "firewall" are considered common and taken out of the search. Can't figure a way out of that problem. :haha:

    If you want the best, use 2 programs:
    Antivirus: Kaspersky Personal Pro from www.kav.ch at $41.50
    Firewall: Agnitum Outpost Pro from www.agnitum.com at $39.95

    If you want a full package, consider Trend Micro PC-cillin™ Internet Security 2005 from www.trendmicro.com at $49.95

    Thank you very much RBS, I bought Kapersky last night and I'm loving it. :) I'm now deciding between outpost pro and sygate pro.
