I want to own an Internet Security software , but I prefer that it has following properties :

  • Not a heavy one that killing the machine (Like Norton) .
  • Delete the viruses , and don't keep it after clean it .
  • The most important off all : Has an Offline databases that i can download and add to program database without connecting to Internet (Not Like KIS 2010)
  • Containing (anti spam -anti Virus - Fire wall - ....... )

So what is in your mind?(Don't tell me AVG I tested it)
