Antiviruses I consider to be antiqued.
As for Antimalware? MBAM.
Just internet security programs in general. I'm considering developing a software but I need more research into the field first. @618, I'm not familiar with MBAM perhaps you could tell me more
Perhaps some screenshots. That'd be nice
I had Norton 360 before, it's a complete package but takes too much resources. Since I got a new proper PC I stopped using torrents and porn so the default Windows Defender seems to be enough.
Sorry for the late reply, Malware Bytes Anti Malware, MBAM is an acronym for it.
It handles most day 1 drops really well. It's very lightweight and offers a free trial for it's premium variant for 30 days upon installing it. The reason I like it, is it's overall flexibility, as well as how lightweight it is. It handles viruses just as well as AV's in my experience on top of being a great program with handling malware and like I said earlier, day 1 drops and PUP's (Potentially unwanted programs), by no means am I a software expert, but this is just my experience with it.
The free version does everything the premium does, without the malicious website blocking or the hyper scan, which i consider to be useless.
MBAM is indeed very light and does what you expect it to do, basically the same can be said for windows defender. You can do pretty risky/stupid stuff with that and still be safe.
Extremely light and probably one of the best ones you can pay $ for.

Thanks for the responses. Looking into MBAM and Webroot (another one I've never heard of). Norton 360 is a familiar one though; having been a life-long user. Whom which I never discovered any security flaws nor experienced any prolonged issues. But, I did find it on the whole unsatisfactory partially because I'm seeking a dynamic multi-purpose internet filter that not only patrols my network but offers a wide range of functions not normally found in a anti-virus suite...

If we spend money on a platform that touts such promises as preservation, security and usability lets go overboard! Not to mention lets get some bang for our buck.
What type of features do you think would accelerate gaming and provide a more user-involved/customized experience?
As a gamer I know that I would like to have an array of real-time monitoring options, on the fly ease-of-use modification/tweaking features and accessible data charts concerning computing, internet and other network statistics.
What are some of your ideas?
