Overlapping protection

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I have Vista Ultimate 64 bit installed.
I have read that 64 bit is more secure than
32 bit, but that Microsoft still recommends
the use of  antivirus software.

I noticed that some antivirus vendors offer
either an antivirus package (basic), or an internet
security package with more features (deluxe).

With all the improvements in Vista, I wonder
if I need to get more than just an Antivirus package ?
Are Vista's security tools any good ?
If I get an internet security package will it just
needlessly overlap (or disable) the tools that
Vista has already provided ?
Please help me to understand what product I
may need to get.

Thanks
Mike

You should install diferents products for different functions. Spend a
little money and get good ones.
1. Use a router with built-in firewall.
2. good AV(NOD32,Kaspersky)
3. Anti-Spyware (SuperAdBlocker)
4. Software firewall(I'm not sure which ones work on Vista)
5. Spam filter
6. You may want to consider using a more secure Browser(Opera or
Firefox) and E-mail client(Opera or Thunderbird)
