First of all, I know there are possible duplicates of my question, but an year old (same) question about internet security is not an duplicate ;)

I know that you will say that this should be closed, because is an subjective question, but I think that this is not an subjective question, this can have only subjective answers. Please don't give answers like:

XY is the best, because I use it...

(I will downvote it!)

If you decide to answer on my question, plese give me some techical, objective arguments on why this is your best choise.

Let's get to my question:

I need an good (complete) internet security solution (antivirus, antispam, firewall, ...).

The main features should be:

  • User friendly interface

  • Easy to set up

  • Regular updates

  • Suported systems: Windows XP and Windows 7

Finaly, my question:

What paid internet security solution would you recommend?

I'd recommand ESET Smart Security, mainly because I use it.

It's not very expensive (40€ - $50/year, something like that), user-friendly (even noobs can use it without being bothered) and light (about 40M RAM, no random scan slowing your computer). Updates every day. Scans inside zip and rar archives, protects your web surfing, found every possible viruses I could have had.

The webpage is in french, didn't find the english version.

On a not-so-related subject, I must say I find the very idea of having a firewall useless when behind a router and very intrusive on a day-to-day use.

BTW, you don't use "an" when the next word starts with a consonant ;)
