Q: Should I Use Free Products Instead Of Paid & Do They Offer The Same Protection?
A: There are a lot of good free security and utility programs on the market. A lot is said as to whether they offer the same level of protection as paid programs. Having tested a lot of free programs, there are some which are even better than paid programs. One thing you'll tend to find though, is that the free programs do not tend to be as user friendly or intuitive as other programs and it's down to personal preference.
Q: Is It Best To Have A Security Suite Or Separate Firewall And Anti Virus?
A: Each of the anti virus companies and firewall companies will specialise in their own fields and will not be as strong in the other. E.g. this means that a security suite produced by a firewall company may not be as effective as a separate firewall and anti virus program. Many security suites contain extra features which some users may not need to use; anti-spam, parental control. At the end of the day, it is down to personal preference.
