Do I need another AV product yet?

Recommended Posts

Hi

I am here new. I have only SAS Professional on my PC. Do I need another AV product yet?

Thanks.

Welcome, BL. Yes, SAS is an anti-spyware program. You also need one anti-virus program and one software firewall.

BL-

I believe that Panda cloud is still in Beta, and that once out of beta you have to purchase it to have access to the main feature. I installed it on a different PC of mine, and it froze up during the scan. I have also heard this reported by many other users. In my opinion, for a free antivirus, Avira free is the best. Everyone has there favorite, and im sure someone will give you a different option for a free AV (Avast or AVG). :D Even if you are looking for a paid version, I would use Avira Premium or even NOD32. Just my 2 cents

PS. Any of these options will run great together with SAS.

Ok.

"Detect and Remove Spyware, Adware, Malware, Trojans, Dialers, Worms, KeyLoggers, HiJackers, Parasites, Rootkits, Rogue Security Products and many other types of threats. Real-Time Blocking of threats! Prevent potentially harmful software from installing or re-installing!".....what that's good for when I need another AV yet?

BL,

It's a supplement to the protection afforded by your primary anti-virus program and firewall.

This is clearly stated by SAS both on the forums and (I believe) on their main site.

Though many AV programs now afford some degree of anti-spyware/malware, they are not specialists in that arena.

I myself use SAS in realtime along with Avira Personal and Online Armor. Everything appears to work together seamlessly.

The link below explains the differences between viruses and spywares, and why you need protection from both.
